Visit: Serbia Inspired Tours
Take a break from hectic pace of modern life and immerse yourself in Western Serbia Nature!
The tour starts at 8 a.m. from your accommodation in Belgrade. During our 3h drive through awe-inspiring western Serbia and on our way to our first destination - Bajina Basta, we will make one short stop in order for you to take memorable pictures from the viewpoint called "The Gate of Podrinje" which represents the entrance to the magical Drina River Valley.
Bajina Basta, small town located on the foothill of Tara Mountain with its unique attraction "House on the rock in the middle of the Drina River" is our first stop. The image of this unusual attraction was posted on a cover of National Geographic magazine.
Short, pleasant drive will take us to our next stop - Raca Monastery, built in 13th century as the endowment of Serbian King Dragutin Nemanjic. In 18th century during the Ottomans occupation of Serbia the monastery was badly damaged, and the new church was built in 1795.
The shortest river in Europe called "Vrelo" is next on our route. Due to the fact that it's only 365m long, river 'Vrelo' received its second name "Godina" or "Year" (long as a year).
The tour proceeds to the heart of Tara National Park. Short, pleasant drive will take us to the point from which we will start our walking/hiking part of the tour (2km in both directions) in order to reach, without doubt, the most beautiful viewpoint in Serbia "Banjska Rock." This place offers splendid panoramic view over the Drina River Canyon. Be prepared to take some breathtaking photos from up here.
Afterwards the lunch break will be made, and you will have the great opportunity to try local specialties of Western Serbia.
Return to Belgrade in late evening hours. Drop off to your accommodation.
