Arrival in Bajina Bašta, meeting the guide, lunch

Bajina Bašta is a town with about 10 thousand inhabitants and some 20 thousand more living in the surrounding hills. The oldest part of the town with symetrical terraced houses dates from the end of the 19th century. The owners of the houses were pety traders and artisans who made up the majority of the town's population.

Visit to the Monastery Rača

Rača monastery is situated on the banks of the small river Rača, in the vicinity of Bajina Bašta. This medieval monastery was founded by the Serbian king, Dragutin Nemanjić. During the Ottoman period, the monastery was one of the most important cultural centres for Serbian people. Rača monastery was renowned for secretly copying Serbian literature in order to maintain cultural legacy. During World War II Rača monastery kept Miroslav's Gospel, the largest and the most important 12th century document of Serbian literature. It was saved from being burnt by being hidden under the stone plates of the monastery’s altar.

Its magnificent canyon stretches all the way to Višegrad. There is probably the shortest river in the world. It is 365 meters long and many say that the Vrelo River is the "One-year-long River". It is rich in trout and after a short river flow and beautiful waterfalls it flows into the Drina River.
