#YourSerbiaHost will pick you up from your Belgrade hotel or other place of your stay early in the morning and you’ll be taken directly to Devil’s Town. Together with occasional stops we reach our first destination around noon. Today we are just warming up, Devil’s town is more of a natural attraction than a real hiking challenge, but you’ll enjoy every minute of it. Time we’ll need to make a tour around the place is around two hours. Even though it’s more of a stroll then a hike, it’s advisable that you wear comfortable and sporty footwear. Also light clothes are advised since there are few climbs and stairs which will drain couple of drops of your sweat.
When we finish with the Devil’s Town we’ll take you to a local tavern for deserved lunch break. Family which runs the place prepares homemade dishes in local way.
After lunch we’ll continue to our destination for the day, Kopaonik Mountain, the largest massif in Serbia and also a National park. Beauty of this mountain is breathtaking. With its peaks, meadows and clean air it will present nature in its best. We’ll have an overnight here, to have a rest before our hike in the morning.
In the morning, after breakfast and check-out from the hotel we’ll get to the center of the resort. From there we’ll go on a hike to the peaks Nebeske stolice (2017m a.s.l.) and Suvo rudište (1976m a.s.l.). Along the trail we’ll see several interesting areas of the mountain, like archaeological site Crkvine, which is still under exploration, meadows covered with blueberries and juniper (if it’s picking season you can eat those as much as you like), but also views towards highest peaks in central Serbia, Kosovo and Montenegro. This hiking trail is not extremely demanding, but it’ll require certain level of physical fitness, adequate gear (hiking shoes and poles) and at least one change in your backpack. We will provide water, energy bars and few sandwiches to renew your energy along the hike. The whole hike is approx. 4-5 hours depending on your fitness and pace.
When we return to the resort’s center we’ll pack our gear and continue further to the west in the direction of Ibar river valley, also known as “Valley of the kings”. Lunch break is planned in a famous restaurant “Kod Mira” in village Bogutovac, which is ran by the same family for two hundred years.
After lunch our journey continues through Kraljevo and Kragujevac and we finally return to Belgrade in the evening.
