Very interesting, shows you how Zlatibor region households looked like one and a half century ago... School classroom was also nice to see. Restaurant within the village serves very tasty local specialties, extraordinary staff. Ticket price symbolic - 150 RSD (a bit over 1 EUR). Access by local (but good) road, enough parking space, free of charge. Definitely recommending!

Museum under the open sky. It fits perfectly with the visit of Zlatibor, certainly worth a look as it once was traditionally a Serbian village.

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.
