About Zlatiboru

Zlatibor – environment and surroundings

About 200km away from Belgrade, Podgorica and Sarajevo is Zlatibor Mountain, a jewel of western Serbia, a health resort where continental and coastal winds are crossing. Zlatibor is a mountain with approximately 2,000 hours of sunshine a year. Considering this and all other plentiful natural beauties Zlatibor owns, with its local specialties and friendly hosts, it is a place for real enjoyment.
Zlatibor has been the most visited mountain in Serbia for years. The highest peak of this nature park is Tornik (1496m), above whom the Wind rose blossomed, which makes this mountain a unique oasis of health.

About Gondola

The Zlatibor Gold Gondola – the pride of the entire Zlatibor – in a very short time became not only the biggest attraction, but also a real tourist flywheel of the entire region.

With its route of almost 9 kilometers, it is the longest single-segment panoramic gondola in the world. With a capacity of 800 passengers/h in 72 cabins with 10 seats each, and with the possibility of a maximum capacity of 90 cabins and 1000 passengers/h, it moves at a maximum speed of 6 m/s. The drive from the starting station in the center of Zlatibor to the final station on the highest peak, Tornik, takes about 30 minutes and during this, the height difference of 531m is crossed.

This panoramic enjoyment would not be complete without a break at the intermediate station, which is located approximately half way to Tornik, and the beautiful Ribničko Lake, which in all its magnificence curves along a part of the route, simply entices everyone to stop at least for a moment and enjoy the beautiful view.

The Gold Gondola is exactly what Zlatibor lacked to establish itself as the most visited domestic tourist destination – a special attraction, a kind of bridge between urban and rural, a link between modern and pristine Zlatibor and something that opened a whole new dimension to the tourist offer. Our visitors got the opportunity to enjoy the experience from a completely different perspective and it is safe to say that Zlatibor before and after the gondola is not the same.


Sirogojno is the most famous ethno village built from houses brought from all over Zlatibor. In order to preserve the tradition of Zlatibor village, in these houses you can see exhibits that were used in the daily life of one peasant family.

Sirogojno is also known for its valuable knitters that turn wool into beautiful handmade sweaters that are sold throughout Europe. During the season, literary, musical and art gatherings are organized here, as well as summer school exhibitions and lectures.

Stopica cave

STOPIĆA CAVE is located near the place Rožanstvo on Zlatibor. The entrance to the cave is located at 711.18m of altitude, and the entrance itself is impressive, as the width of the gape is 35m and the height is 18m. This cave is about 2000m long and about 50m high.

It is one of the most beautiful caves in Serbia, although it is not very rich with cave decorations.


Drvengrad is an ethno village built to resemble the city. It is located between the mountains of Tara and Zlatibor on a hilly part called Mecavnik, above the village Mokra Gora. You can see many interesting things here.

The small central square is paved with wood, and there are small wooden houses around. Emir Kusturica, our famous film director, has marked the streets of Drvengrad after famous writers and actors.
