ABOUT THE DESTINATION

Compared to other Serbian mountain destinations, Zlatibor has the advantage of having a well-developed tourism infrastructure. Meeting guests will easily find an activity that suits their mood during their stay during all seasons.

UNIQUE VENUES

Drvengrad – a wooden village for filmmaking

Drvengrad is a story on its own just because of its charismatic founder Emir Kusturica. The film director’s wooden village was constructed for the needs of a movie called “Life is a Miracle” in 2004.

The venue has a restaurant, a library, a gallery, a cinema and most importantly, the charisma and brilliance of the director himself. The incentive story can be complemented by boarding a museum train, which runs through the bridges and tunnels of the “Šarganska osmica” line.

Sirogojno Museum

Among Zlatibor’s diverse selection of unique venues, the Sirogojno Museum is the most authentic. The ethnographic village showcases the architecture and the life of local people through the ages. It was first mentioned back in the 15th century.

The venue was entirely renovated in 1980, and guests can now get an insight into a typical Zlatibor rural house. The famous hand-knitted pullovers and other handmade souvenirs are tremendously popular among tourists. In addition, several restaurants are furnished in an authentic retro style nearby.

HOW TO GET THERE

Even though Zlatibor is hard to reach, visitors are rewarded with spectacular views, favourable mountain climate and unparalleled Serbian hospitality after a long journey. Public transport is slightly disorganised, even though it does connect Zlatibor with larger cities and Belgrade.

Zlatibor recently became home to the Gold Gondola Lift, the longest panoramic lift in the world. At nine kilometres long, this state-of-the-art gondola connects the centre of Zlatibor with the ski centre of Tornik. The latest addition to the emerging destination will further its appeal as a dream destination for skiers, mountaineers or tourists who simply want to enjoy the fantastic panoramic journey to the highest peak of Zlatibor.
