Zlatibor - surroundings and surroundings
About 200 km from Belgrade, Podgorica and Sarajevo is the mountain Zlatibor, the jewel of western Serbia, an aerial spa where continental and coastal winds meet. Zlatibor is a mountain with about 2,000 hours of sunshine per year, which, together with the natural beauty of which Zlatibor abounds, local specialties and friendly hosts, 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 which the rose of winds bloomed, which makes this mountain a unique oasis of health.
About the 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, 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 the altitude 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 up a whole new dimension of 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.
