Operated by: VICTOR TOURS

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Belgrade

Our tour starts from your accommodation, and we head toward Western Serbia, known for its wild and untouched nature, tasty cuisine and friendly and hospitable people.

Stop At: Gate of Podrinje

Our first stop is one of the most famous viewpoints in the area called "Kapija Podrinja." From here, you can enjoy a breathtaking view and admire the stunning scenery made of surrounding mountains and the Drina river. After a short ride, we will reach our next stop, Bajina Bašta, a small town in the foothill of Mt. Tara.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Drina River House

Here, we will see the world-famous attraction, "The House on the Drina," an isolated house made of logs on a river stone. It's one of the most photogenic sights in the region

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Mokra Gora

We will leave the house behind us and continue our trip just in time to make it for the departure of the famous Sargan Eight scenic train. A unique narrow-gauge railway nowadays serves only for the amusement. During our ride, we will pass and stop on several viewpoints from which one can see fabulous views over Mokra Gora. Authentic cars with wooden seats, wood-burning stove, and characteristic rattling sound will take us back in 1925 when this railway was put in operation and made a connection between Belgrade and the Adriatic Sea. After almost two and a half hour ride, we are returning to the departing station from where we continue our journey to the nearby Mećavnik, or Drvengrad (Wooden City).

Duration: 3 hour

Stop At:

Our next stop is "Drvengrad" or "Timbertown". The famous director Emir Kusturica (two times Palme D'Or in Cannes winner) decided to build it during the shooting of his film "Life is a miracle." He chose to convey ruined wooden chalets from the slopes of the mountain, to restore them, equip them with luxurious facilities, and to form a new settlement. Quirky flourishes are everywhere: the Stanley Kubrick cinema shows Kusturica's films, and vintage cars are parked on twisting streets named after celebrities such as Bruce Lee and Diego Maradona (about whom Kusturica made a fascinating documentary). Here we will make a stop to enjoy a traditional lunch made of specialties of the very famous cuisine of Western Serbia, irresistibly delicious and very piquant. (not included) After the meal, we will head back for Belgrade.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
