Wooden Town is an ethno park where wooden traditional houses typical of the Tara and Zlatibor mountain villages are assembled. Arriving in Wooden Town brings us back to the 19th century countryside settlement of this area while a chance encounter with the famous film director Emir Kusturica reminds us that we have already stepped into the 21st century.
Special and rare features of the area are numerous springs of clear mountain water, which have gained recognition worldwide for its healing properties. One of them is the White Water spring rated to fifth place in Europe by its concentration of alkalinity. This water can be used for eyelid inflammation which led to its designation as “the eye-water spring”.
Day One: Arrival in Bajina Bašta until 13.00, visit to the lake Perućac, boarding the boat, boat cruise through the Drina River Gorge, lunch on board. End of the cruise at 16.00. Visit to the River Vrelo and its waterfalls; visit to the Monastery Rača from the 13th century. Check in the hotel. Diner and overnight.
Day Two: After breakfast depart for Mokra Gora (visit to Wooden Town – an ethno village built by Emir Kusturica settled on Mećavnik hill). Visit to the old railway station (the most attractive narrow gage railroad in Europe – the railway station dates from 1925); the Ćira train drive, then visit to the White Water spring (with thermal water ideal for healing eye diseases – fifth best in Europe). Return back to the hotel. End of the tour.
