Tour Flow

#YourSerbiaHost will pick you up at 8 am sharp from your Belgrade accommodation. Drive is long but you won’t feel it much, thanks to a newly built highway and to several breathtaking spots en route ideal for short breaks and taking photos.

Before you reach Mokra Gora town you will visit the famous Wooden Town Mećavnik-Drvengrad  (also known by the other name Kustendorf). The town was a result of the vision of Emir Kusturica which he got during filming his movie „Life is a miracle“. In Wooden Town you can find, as in any regular town, museum, church, library, hotel, restaurant… You might be surprised with street names in this town because those are named after famous people Kusturica admires: Nikola Tesla, Bruce Lee, Ernesto Che Guevara, Diego Armando Maradona, Federico Fellini, Ingmar Bergman.

After a break in Wooden Town you’re getting on board the train for the 13:30 Sargan Eight tour departure. During the ride you will pass and stop at several stations and viewpoints. Authentic railcars with wooden seats, wood burning stove and characteristic rattling sound will take you back to 1925, when this railway was opened and established a connection between Belgrade and the Adriatic Sea. The track on this section is around 15km long and passes through 22 tunnels overcoming an altitude difference of 300m.

Last attraction for the day is the famous Drina River House. You will enjoy this unusual sight on our way back to Belgrade, after a drive through Tara National Park.

Regarding lunch plans, there is plenty of choices and opportunities en route. We will give you several choices to pick from, depending where we are on the itinerary.

After a full day of activities you are getting back to Belgrade in the evening. Usual drop-off time is between 8 and 9pm.

Had a fantastic day with friends, with Miljan as a guide. He picked as up on time at the hostel in a comfortable car to drive to the Mokra Gora. During the ride he told a lot about Serbia and about the Balkan, and he answered all of our questions. Besides telling us about Serbia he was also really interested in us, like where we came from and why we chose to do a citytrip to Belgrade/Serbia. After visiting the wooden village he dropped us off for the train tour which was beautiful. He then picked us up to drive back to our hostel, and on the way we stopped at the river house. During the trip Miljan took some pictures of us. We really learned a lot and we would definitely recommend booking this tour with Miljan as a guide.
