We start the tour with drive (200km) toward Western Serbia via picturesque Ovčar-Kablar Canyon that extends above meanders of the Western Morava River to Zlatibor mountain and Mokra Gora. Mokra Gora meaning the Wet Mountain, is a village in Serbia on the northern slopes of mountain Zlatibor. Village become popular after a reconstruction of a narrow gauge railway called Šargan Eight which is unique in the world. Railway that passes through 22 tunnels, over 5 bridges, and overcome the altitude difference of 300 meters, on a total distance of 15 kilometers, was once connecting Belgrade with Sarajevo. We will board the famous dinky train Nostalgia – created in old-time style, so you can feel that old atmosphere while sitting in its authentic cars with wooden seats, smelling fume from its wood burning stove and hearing the rumble of its wheels and go for a ride along the most exciting section of this narrow gauge line. During the ride, the train makes a few stops so you can take some fabulous photographs and enjoy the views.

After ride we will visit the ethno village “Wooden City” (also known as Drvengrad and Mećavnik) built as a setting for “Life is a Miracle”, Emir Kusturica’s film. The amazing village was until recently just a couple of salvaged traditional wooden houses on a bluff above a spectacularly beautiful valley, but has been transformed into a modern equivalent of the medieval great monastery or university made of natural materials, mostly from wood. In the newly built town you can find streets and squares, hotel, few restaurants and bars, congress center, library, Serbia’s most advanced cinema, church, large indoor swimming pool, saunas, gym, tennis court and an underground basketball arena. Once a year town hosts the annual “Küstendorf” Film and Music Festival with famous guests from all over the world (Johnny Depp, Monica Belucci, Jim Jarmusch and many others). After visit of Wooden Town (or before) we will have lunch on the site and slowly start our journey back to Belgrade.

Duration: 11 – 12 hours
