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.
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.
