The river Uvac lies between northern slopes of Zlatar Mountain and southern part of Zlatibor. The canyon has a special value as a part of Serbian Geo-heritage due to its curving meanders. This place is also unique because it is a nesting place of a very rare and almost extinct species of vulture – the Griffon vulture. In order to protect this area around the gorge of the river Uvac as the habitat of the Griffon vulture, it was declared a Special Nature Reserve.
There are many caves here, among which we could mention Ledena (eng. Ice) Cave, Tubića cave and Ušačka cave, one of the longest in Serbia. Entrances to the caves are occasionally submerged,
but can be accessed by boat.
