Everything is so close that you can almost reach out and touch the freezing water beneath you and steep rocks and dark forests along the river banks will surround you. Only the sky is far away from you. It shows up there among the grey rocks as a narrow pale blue stripe…
After a short drive we will arrive to the ethno village of Mecavnik, the ‘Wooden City’, built as a setting for the latest film of the very famous movie director Emir Kusturica.

Once, this narrow gauge train, affectionately known as the Cira (Chira), used to be the only traveling solution for the people of the area. The train cut its path through the astonishing landscapes of Serbia and Bosnia, on its way from Belgrade to Sarajevo, and further on to Dubrovnik. Now it is possible to ride a 15km part of it, famous for its curves in the shape of the number 8 that made it possible to climb the steep slopes of the mountains Šargan and Mokra Gora. The track was reconstructed in 1999. During the ride, the train makes a few stops, one of which lasts 20 minutes to let you take some fabulous photographs, enjoy the views, or have a refreshment in the café of a tiny and charming ‘railway station’.

Day 5: Monastery Studenica – Mt. Kopaonik – Niš

(Total distance for this day 190 km – total drive only 4h 30 min)

After breakfast this morning we will learn more about the Monastery Studenica. It was founded by Stefan Nemanja. This is considered to be the crowning achievement of medieval culture and art in Serbia. The monastery complex consists of the fascinating Church of the Virgin (1183 – 1196), the Church of SS Joachim and Anne (also known as the King’s Church) and the Church of St. Nicholas, a simple single-nave building. The monastery circle contains monuments raised over a period of 130 years, and several Serbian rulers had a hand in their construction. At the start of this period, the young Serbian feudal state under Stefan Nemanja was consolidating its independence, and by King Milutin’s reign it had reached the height of its political, cultural and economic power. The strengthening of the medieval state and of its ruler’s might is naturally reflected in these monuments.

Our drive will take via Kopaonik, a mountain range located in South Serbia. It is the largest in Serbia. The highest point is the Pancic’s Peak with 2,017 m. The central part of the Kopaonik plateau was declared a national park. It is one of the most popular ski center in Serbia as well as hiking center during summer months. We will make a short stop for a lunch.

Next, we will get to Niš, the second largest town in Serbia. This city is most famous as the birthplace of Constantine the Great. It is situated in the Nišava valley, near the spot where it joins the Južna Morava River, one of the most important Balkan and European traffic lines along which peoples, goods and armies moved. Known as the ‘Via Militaris’ in Roman and Byzantine periods and the ‘Constantinople road’ in the Middle Ages and the period of Turkish rule, these roads still represent major European traffic arteries. Niš is one of the oldest cities in the Balkans, and has from ancient times been considered a gateway between the East and the West. There is abundant archaeological evidence that Niš was inhabited even in prehistoric times. The city was named after the Nišava River, which was called Navissos by the Celtic inhabitants of the town. Each new conqueror gave the town a new name: Roman Naissus, Byzantine Nysos, Slovene Niš, or German Nissa. We will see Niš Fortress, a complex and very important cultural and historical monument that dominates the urban nucleus of the city. The existing fortification is of Turkish origin, dating from the first decades of the 18th century. It is known as one of the most significant and best preserved monuments of this kind in the Balkans. Dinner in the local restaurant.
