Zlatibor, the mountain beauty of Serbia, is increasingly popular among tourists from Serbia as well as those coming from abroad. Only two and a half hours' drive from Belgrade and Nikola Tesla Airport, it is an oasis of peace, clean air and good food. It was created for all seasons, and in autumn days it is an excellent choice for a weekend vacation.
It is unlikely that there will be snow for skiing in Tornik in October, but a walk in Zlatibor and the smell of the so-called the rose of faiths, where the Mediterranean and continental climates meet, is a real treasure for the body and an excellent choice for escaping the city air. The specific climate, characterized by about two thousand hours of sunshine per year, is also suitable for sports and recreational tourism.
If you have been to Zlatibor and have not visited the Stopi?a cave, it means that you have not seen the most beautiful cave in our country. Only 19 kilometers from the center of Zlatibor, on the Zlatibor-Sirogojno road, it hides a 100 m thick limestone layer. The Trnava Stream flows through it, and its trademark are bigren tubs, depressions lined with winding, wrinkled stone walls in which water collects and cascades over, creating waterfalls of different shades of light. Some are up to seven meters deep, and the largest waterfall of almost ten meters is symbolically called the Source of Life.
And twice as big as that, the Gostiljski waterfall, which is one of the highest waterfalls in Serbia, is located 25 kilometers from the center of Zlatibor. There are well-maintained footpaths with rest benches.
Zlatibor has not only beautiful nature, but also numerous cultural and historical places worthy of attention.
Sirogojno, a village with only 643 inhabitants, is widely known, one might even say in the world. Sweaters made of sheep's wool with specific Zlatibor motifs are also sold in Europe, and since 2008 there has been a Museum of Knitters in Sirogojno. Within the Museum is the Church of Saints Peter and Paul with an iconostasis from 1764.
The only open-air museum in Serbia consists of two parts. Old log cabins brought from all parts of Zlatibor, which have preserved their original appearance and purpose, are a permanent feature of the Zlatibor garden. The second part of the complex is the log cabins of their original appearance, but intended for the accommodation of guests and the sale of souvenirs.
The Zlatibor log cabins bear witness to the life of the Zlatibor area in the 19th and early 20th centuries, when people lived in cooperatives that had up to 50 members.
The biggest attraction of the Zlatibor region and Mokra Gora is certainly the Šarganska osmica, a narrow-gauge railway that was used until 1974. Due to the inaccessible terrain and overcoming the height difference of 300 meters, the only thing that was possible to build was a railway in the shape of the number eight, thus passing through the same geographical point twice. Today it is a tourist ride that lasts an hour, and 22 tunnels and more than five bridges make it an unforgettable part of your visit to the Zlatibor region.
