Journey to West Serbia begins in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. This is a journey where you will meet the customs and traditions of western Serbia. Each place we visit has a unique energy and will leave you breathless.
On our journey map, the first place we will visit is the ethnic village of Terzića Avlija. Here we will visit the museum of Serbian history and ethnic heritage in the open and learn to make the famous pottery from Zlakusa. Try traditional specialties and relax in modern apartments in a beautiful natural environment.
Ethno village has both open-air and closed museums. Here you can see a typical rural household from the surroundings of Uzice. It dates from the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. It is located not far from the center of the village, on a hill, just below the forest. “Terzića avlija” represents the former typical village yard, consisting of two old Serbian houses. One is 100 years old and built of unpeeled brick, with a roof of four water covered with old pepper tile.
If you believe that the horseshoe brings happiness, “Potpeće” cave will be a special pleasure for you. Precisely because the entrance to this cave, built by the river of the sink, is exactly in the form of a horseshoe. This is a monument of nature and the most important speleological site in western Serbia. The entrance in the Cave, one of the largest in the Balkans, is over 50 meters tall, 12 meters wide at the bottom, and 22 meters at the top. It is classified as a natural wonder.
