This tour is a scheduled group tour which operates only on Thursdays, from 19th of April till 31st of October.  The dynamic single day tour will take you to the west of Serbia where you’ll have a train ride on unique narrow-gauge railway Sargan Eight and you’ll visit the unusual ethnic complex Kustendorf. The description below will give you a solid overview on what you can experience during this day with #YourSerbiaHost on tour.

The train Nostalgia departs from Mokra gora station at 13:30 on regular basis, so #YourSerbiaHost will meet you at 8am at meeting point in the center of Belgrade. During our journey there are several breath-taking spots where we can make stop for short brake and taking photos.

We arrive at Mokra gora just in time for short break and lunch in the restaurant at the train station before getting on board the train and departure of Sargan Eight tour. During the ride you will pass and stop at stations Sargan-Vitasi, Sargan-Jatare and make stops on several viewpoints from which one can see fabulous views over Mokra gora. Authentic cars with wooden seats, wood burning stove and characteristic rattling sound will take you back in 1925 when this railway was put in operation and made connection between Belgrade and Adriatic Sea. The track on this section is around 15km long and passes through 22 tunnels with overcoming an altitude difference of 300m.

After almost two and a half hour ride the train is returning to the departing station from where we continue our tour to nearby Kustendorf which was built by Emir Kusturica during filming his movie „Life is a miracle“. Before this movie was filmed there was nothing on the hill, but famous director was thrilled with the amount of sunshine this place was receiving during the day and he decided to build this unusual place. In Kustendorf you can find, as in any regular town, a museum, a church, a library, a hotel, a 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…  But you shouldn’t be, just remember that this place was built on a vision of a Kusturica.

After whole day of exploration of Mogra gora town and its beauties it’s time return to Belgrade. We’ll arrive in Belgrade in the late evening.
