#YourSerbiaHost will pick you up from your hotel or other place of your stay in Belgrade in the morning (usual pickup time is 9am). Together, you’ll continue to the west of the city, to the area of Šumadija region and Kosmaj Mountain. This region is well known for its hills and mountains, with thick forests and breathtaking views.
It’ll take under an hour to reach the point where we’ll leave our ride and continue on foot. Before you start the hike Kosmaj adventure, you can visit monastery Tresije from the XIV century.
First portion of the trail goes through thick forest and this part is the most steep on the whole route, but still quite easy. At the end of this section you’ll reach a monumental memorial to partisans who died in WWII. This is one of the finest examples of communist architecture in ex Yugoslavia. After a short break you’ll continue further to the one of the highest points of Kosmaj Mountain, where an observation deck is conveniently set. Spectacular views over the whole area will open in front of you, and on a clear day your view will reach all the way to Belgrade.
Further down the mountain trail goes again through the woods. Next orientation point is medieval monastery Kasteljan, or to be precise, its remains, which lay surrounded by the forest. Now the final portion of the Kosmaj hike remains. The trail goes through the local village, and you’ll see how authentic Šumadijan village looks like. It’ll take an hour to reach our lunch destination, a local kafana (tavern) which serves pork and lamb, roasted on a spit.
After lunch we’ll get you back to Belgrade. Usual drop-off time is around 5pm.
