Departure from Belgrade.

We start the tour by picking you up from your hotel and after a short ride around Belgrade, we will continue the trip on the Milos the Great Highway towards the southwest.

Stop at Podrinje Gate.

After a two-hour ride, we arrive at our first stop. Podrinje Gate is a viewpoint at Bajina Bašta municipality, located at 925 meters above sea level, next to the Valjevo-Bajina Bašta highway. This place presents the point from which starts the entrance to the magical Drina valley and our acquaintance with the beauties of Podrinje region. From this viewpoint, there is an exquisite view over the mountain area of Bajina Bašta municipality and our neighbor Republika Srpska.

Stop at the Little House on Drina.

After a half an hour ride we arrive at the Bosnia and Herzegovina border and Drina River to our second stop. A little wooden house on an isolated rock in the middle of the Drina River became a true world attraction. This house located at Bajina Bašta resists nature for 45 years, and after National Geographic magazine devoted one of its issues to it, Daily Mail also wrote about this magical handmade piece. Recently, Business Insider also mentioned it and ranked it top 16 weirdest houses in the world. The Little House on Drina is a symbol of Bajina Bašta and one of the most famous river landmarks in Serbia and the whole Podrinje region, also known as Zelenika. In time, it became so popular that there are thousands of newspapers, televisions, internet portals, and tourist brochures that daily bring stories, videos, and images of the famous house on the rock.

Stop at Vrelo restaurant.

Vrelo restaurant is located on the waterfall of a small river Vrelo (the shortest river in Europe – 365 meters!) that collapses into Drina. Most of the tables of the restaurant garden are placed above the waterfall, which makes this a very unique ambient. Besides this, Vrelo River is bridged with multiple terraces with tables.
The whole garden area of the Vrelo restaurant is covered by trees that are making a very pleasant shade even during the biggest summer heat. Lunch at the restaurant garden is a memorable event and a unique opportunity to take photos in a fairytale ambient.

Stop at Banjska stena viewpoint.

Banjska stena viewpoint is the most beautiful viewpoint on Tara Mountain, but also one of the most beautiful and well-known viewpoints in Serbia. It is located 6 kilometers from Mitrovac and the way to get there is by two marked walking trails and a macadam road. The location of the viewpoint is at 1065 meters above sea level and from it, we can see an unreal view of the Perućac Lake, Drina canyon, and Osata area in the nearby Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is fenced with a secure wooden fence and there is a bench that allows you to sit and enjoy the magical landscape. This viewpoint has become extremely popular in recent years, therefore as a special nature reserve of Uvac we can consider it a symbol of Serbian tourism.

Stop at Drvengrad.

Located on Mećavnik hill in Mokra Gora nature park, the meeting point of two beautiful Serbian mountains Tara and Zlatibor, ethno village ‘Drvengrad’ is a product of film director Emir Kusturica’s imagination, and was built for the production of his film ‘Life is a miracle’. Around the world, it is better known under the name of Kustendorf, a gorgeous oasis just beside Mokra Gora, a town of only 605 residents, not far from the city of Užice. ‘Drvengrad’ is a rectangular ethno village with the main street leading from the entrance gate on one end to a small wooden Christion-orthodox church on the other.
