Tour description:

Day one (Saturday)

We'll start from Novi Sad at 7.00 AM from the parking lot opposite the Hotel Sajam; our passengers from Belgrade will join us at 8.30 AM.

Our first stop will be in the picturesque Ovčar-Kablar gorge, where we'll visit the Nikolje Monastery, the most beautiful among the 16 monasteries in the area. Just a short drive away from the gorge is the village of Potpeće and above it, the imposing cave is best known for its huge entrance in the shape of an elephant. We'll enjoy our lunch in the "Terzića avlija" restaurant.

After lunch, we continue the journey to the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina. After a 10-minutes' drive, we'll arrive in the town of Višegrad and the hotel. After the check-in, we'll have a tour around Andrićgrad, a stone city dedicated to Ivo Andrić, the famous writer and the only Serbian Noble Prize Winner. During the summer months, while the days are longer, we recommend a short boat ride along the Drina river.

After dinner at the hotel, you'll have free time to explore places in Andrićgrad suitable for spending the evening in, including a beer hall, wine tavern,  a rakia bar, patisseries, etc.

Day two (Sunday)

After breakfast at 7.30 AM, an optional visit to the Ivo Andrić Schoolroom follows, where an interesting lecture about his life and work will be given.

Crossing the border back into Serbia, we reach Mokra Gora village where we'll board to the train that will take us on a narrow gauge railway known as the Šargan Eight. It got its name after the way the railway climbs and makes a twist in the shape of a number 8. 

After this amazing train ride, we'll visit the hill of Mećavnik where the famed movie director Emir Kusturica built an ethno-themed “Wooden Town”, or Drvengrad. Free time for lunch.

During our journey towards Belgrade, we'll take another break in Ovčar Banja. We'll arrive in Belgrade, and then Novi Sad, in late evening hours.

Note: in case the train timetable changes, we'll first visit the Mećavnik Hill and then go on our train ride. In that case, we'll have lunch at the restaurant in Mokra Gora train station or in one of the restaurants in Ovčar Banja.

    Jako lepa tura,dobro organizovana,sa uslužnim i stručnim vodičem,siguran i fin vozač.Najlepši deo ture vožnja Šarganskom prugom a jedino mi je žao zbog nemogućnosti posete Potpećke pećine jer zbog konfiguracije terena nije baš pristupačna starijim učesnicima

  2. 3566 Jelena Kalezic

    Postovani, Zahvaljujemo vam na odlicno organizovanom dvodnevnom izletu. I mi i drugi putnici smo opusteno i lepo proveli ova dva dana, a i upoznali zanimljive ljude. Program je veoma sadrzajan, pa bi mozda trebalo da bude organizovan na 3-4 dana, jer je na svakom mestu bilo veoma lepo, a leti bi moglo da se ostane i makar po jedan dan na Mokroj gori i u Visegradu.Naravno, znam da posete manastirima u Ovcarsko/Kablarskoj klisuri imate kao poseban program. Vodic Milan Gromovic je profesionalno i nenametljivo vodio grupu i omogucio nam uzivanje tokom citavog putovanja. Vozac Miroslav Mladenovski je bio pouzdan, pazljiv i na vreme stizao na sve tacke putovanja. Nadam se da cemo i dalje saradjivati i druziti se. srdacan pozdrav Jelena Kalezic sa roditeljima

    Kompletna tura je izuzetno zanimljiva. Nije pretrpana mestima već je sve raspoređeno da može u svakoj od poseta da se uživa. Za mene je posebno prvog dana bila divna poseta manastiru Nikolje jer nisam pre bila i nisam pojma imala koliko je taj manastir lep. Isto tako je otkriće bila Potpećka pećina. Višegradski most je jedan od razloga što sam izabrala turu. Veličanstveno arhitektonsko delo. Hotel gde smo bili smešteni ima izvanredu lokaciju. Onaj ko je gradio taj hotel nije mnogo znao o hotelima jer da je znao omogućili bi pristup invalidima. Instalacije u hotelu baš ne funkcionišu. Međutim sve se zaboravi kada se sedne na terasu i uz dobru hranu posmatra most. Andrć grad je meni potpuno nezanimljiv i veštački i na silu napravljen ali jzgleda da je dobar za lokalnu ekonomiju. Ljudi srdačni. Mokra gora i Šarganska osmica veličanstveni. To je sigurno najveća turistička atrakcija koju Srbija u ovom trenutku ima. Svetski nivo. Vodič Dejan je bio izuzetan. Uživali smo svi u njegovim pričama i obaveštenjima. Odlično se brinuo o nama i zaista ću gledati opet idem na neku turu koju će on voditi.

    Odlična tura, sve pohvale agenciji i vodiču na dostupnosti

  6. Tura je interesantna, uzbudljiva i poučna. Kompletna organizacija ture na najvišem nivou. Šteta je što prvi dan ručak nismo imali u Vodeničaru a ne u Terzića avliji. Ovaj detalj, medjutim, uopšte ne kvari opšti utisak. Vodič Bojan je elokventan i poseduje veliko znanje vezano za mesta i objekte koji su bili u programu. Bili su to odlični časovi iz istorije, geografije, književnosti, likovne umetnosti i drugih predmeta. Vozač, majstor Mile, je savršeno obavio svoj deo posla. Lep dvodnevni spoj zabavnog i korisnog.

  7. Tura je predivna i odlicno organizovana, od sveg srca je preporucujem.

  8. Inspirativna , bajkovita , neponovljiva... Sve pohvale....
