Location description from owner

The Central Serbia region

A beautiful mountainous region, known since Roman times, is famed for the Tara National Park. Mokra Gora boasts a UNESCO village of traditional Serb houses built by the internationally acclaimed film director Emir Kusturica. A small train journey traverses the region in a figure of eight . Bird watching for rare golden eagles and a unique vulture colony in Tresnica is one of two in the whole of Europe. The medieval orthodox monastery of Raca in breathtaking scenery is close by. Climate is continental.

Bajina Basta

Bajina Basta is a small town providing all amenities - shopping, cafes, restaurants and hotels.A perfect retreat away from the crowds that will make you spoilt for choice of things to do: fly fishing on the river Drina is 5 minutes down the road, hiking, cycling, exploring in the Tara National Park renown for wildlife is but a short drive away. A 7-day Rafting and Rock concert takes place second week in July.A small ski resort approx. 3/4 hr. away has been opened in 2007.The breathtaking natural beauty of SW. Serbia has been largely overlooked by visitors. This is a country in the heart of Europe untouched by crowds, with friendly people of proverbial hospitality upholding their traditional ways, in other words ‘unspoilt’. The climate is continental – cold winters, warm to hot, but not stifling summers. For lovers of nature and associated sports Drinska Kuca is ideally situated. Superb fly fishing (according to expert opinion one of the best in Europe) , hiking and cycling are on the doorstep. It stands in a small village of widely scattered houses, surrounded by a profusion of plant life changing with the seasons, from the ground cover of Spring flowers and flowering plum and cherry trees to the fresh green of the woods changing to rich gold in the autumn. One-day excursions will take a visitor to sites of fabulous scenery and historical interest. The house overlooks the river Drina, its jade-green, clear waters home to a number of species of fish, particularly salmon, trout, and the rare species of salmon the huchen. A short drive away is the National Park of Tara covering an area of nearly 48 thousand acres of mountain, deep gorges and lakes, 80% covered in forest of spruce, pine and beech, best preserved in Europe . It is home to over a thousand species of plants, including the rare, endemic “Pancic” spruce, about 130 species of birds, particularly the golden eagle, as well as mammals – brown bear, wolf, wild goat and roe deer. This unique natural heritage has been proposed for the UNESCO World Heritage list. The whole area is crisscrossed by paths for walkers, cyclists horse riders and for mountaineering. Maps and leaflets may be obtained from the Park Information Centre. Hunting for roe deer and wild goat (bear and wolf are protected) needs a permit. For those who prefer not to picnic there are a number of restaurants serving delicious, organic food.All kinds of water sports are on offer in the charming village of Perucac situated by a lake some 20 km. away. Boat tours take the visitor to the Drina Gorge, the world’s third deepest canyon. A small river flows through it in a series of picturesque waterfalls. One can watch the last one as it cascades into the lake from the restaurant terrace above it.Some 30 km. South of Drinska Kuca are two film-set villages of Mokra Gora. Reconstructed in the style of local rural architecture and protected by the World Heritage the village is the brainchild of the distinguished film director Emil Kusturica. It houses his school for film directors , a number of excellent restaurants and a hotel complex. The village above it was built solely as a film- set. Nearby is a ski slope , complete with all amenities and a charming hotel.Mokra Gora is also famous for the narrow gauge railway which has resolved the problem of a 300 metres height by travelling in the figure of ‘8’. The two trains comprising a steam locomotive and old wagons take the visitors through scenic setting beautiful enough to be set in a film.Nearer home, accessed by a small road along the river Raca , lined with lush vegetation with scattered picnic areas is the Orthodox Raca Monastery. The present church dates from mid-nineteenth century built on the foundations of older ones destroyed by the occupying Turks and twice reconstructed. It was once a renowned centre for transcribing and illuminating manuscripts. Next to it is a small museum documenting the tumultuous history of the Turkish occupation and its place as a custodian of Serb identity. A path above the monastery leads to a spring believed to have medicinal properties, good for diseases of the skin.Still within a day’s excursion is a treat for bird watchers. In the cliffs of Tresnica is a colony of European vultures, one of the only two in Europe (the other is in Greece). These spectacular birds, an endangered, protected species, can be watched with a keeper appointed by the government who feeds them.The nearest town of Bajna Basta offers all modern facilities – shopping, banks, cafes and restaurants. A weekly market offers local, seasonal produce at its freshest and truly organic (due to lack of pesticides). Serbs cannot be accused of not being able to enjoy themselves. The region is famous for its trumpet orchestras, tracing its origins to mid-nineteenth century. These days there are numerous festivals, the most important one the “Dragacevo Trumpet Festival” which takes place every summer. A local one can be hired by visitors to Drinska Kuca who might wish to celebrate an anniversary or a birthday in style.In July a 2-day Drinska Regatta is best watched from the banks of the river not far from Drinska Kuca. The first day is devoted to competition, the oarsmen showing off their skills, the second is of fun, with traditional singing and dancing and ,of course, the trumpet orchestra. Also in July there is a 3-day International Fishing Competition on the river Drina. In the first week in October a festival called ‘The Days of Raca’ is celebrated in Bajina Basta – a combination of classical music, drama and art. Bajina Basta is also a centre of rally racing – mountain racing, the ‘Tara Rally’ and the ‘Yu Rally European Championship’.
