The beautiful nature to the Sirogojno so we stopped every time. Ethno Village for each recommendation with taste. The village itself is a lovely little café where you can eat drink a traditional dish. The hospitality of the locals is particularly striking.

This open air museum shows the traditional way of life of the Serbian villagers of 100 years ago. Children would like this as there are several houses to visit. There are also some local people selling honey, jam, rakia and handcrafts. They will happily give you a taste of the various types of rakia. They enjoy watching your face as... More

This is a well-run, and not too busy, preserved village, which gives the traveller a good insight into Serbian rural life a century ago - and also indicates how much rural life has improved since then. There is a pleasant route (via Ljubis) through the hills from here to Studenica monastery, if you are working your way round the antiquities... More

If you are coming to Zlatibor, you should definitely visit Sirogojno. It is an old traditional Serbian village and for sure you will enjoy a good day of walking hills and getting introduced to the 19 century ways of living in Serbia. This Old village is an open air museum and for sure your kids will enjoy walking and playing... More

Countryside is really soothing and beautiful. Houses are authentic Serbian with the exhibitions inside that faithfully depict life in the village. In one of the houses is a traditional restaurant with fine food and service.

It is true I came there with my group in a pouring rain but in spite of that I did not feel that the village has a lot to offer. Just few houses are open for visiting, in some you can just peep from the door. They could do a better job.

This is very beautiful place which shows us how people in Serbia lived in XIX century. That is an open-air museum. You can try the traditional Serbian food out there, and it`s definitely very tasty.

This is how you will get an idea of how Serbian houses looked like in the past and the building evolved over the years. It is not far from Zlatibor and I would recommend it a site especially during summer and autumn months, as, in the winter is a bit difficult to walk around. Excellent place for breakfast. It also...
