Day 1: Belgrade – Devil`s town – Kopaonik mountain
Departure from Belgrade. Drive south to the town of Kuršumlija, where we will visit a church from 12th century, build by Serbian grand prince Stefan Nemanja. It is dedicated to St. Nicholas.
Continuing towards Devil`s town and visit to this unique natural wonder, which was a serious contented for the final round of „New 7 wonders of Nature“ in 2011. It consists of a group of narrow stone figures (2 to 15 meters high and ½ to 3 meters wide) with large stone „caps“ on their top. The figures are a result of a specific erosive process which last for centuries. The figures form, grow, change, disappear. Over the years, the process repeats itself, so each visit to this park is a unique experience.
This phenomena is very rare to find in the world and is unique in Serbia.
The tour lasts around 90 minutes.
There is a restaurant in the park where we have free time for lunch. Do not hesitate to try the local specialty – The Devil`s skewer!
After the lunch break the day continues with a drive to Kopaonik mountain. Arrival at the hotel. Overnight.
