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...

Beautiful and peaceful open-air museum. It is very interesting for the kids.The restaurant is beautiful with great food. The food is traditional Serbian so for guests with specific requirements is not intended.

Sirogojno is a small village that I recommend you see if you stay more than few days on Zlatibor. It's about 30-40 minutes away by car from the main Zlatibor touristic center, depending on which way you take. There are few signposts, but at the times you might feel like you are lost in the woods and curvy roads, so... More

Staro Selo is an open air museum of Serbian country-life in older times, near the village of Sirogojno. It is settled like a real village in a wood; peasants' houses furnished in the old folk style with their barns, woodsheds, stables, beehives, toolhouses, a tiny wooden restaurant serving traditional Serbian food, a wooden amphitheatre, huts, etc. It is intriguing to...

Nice sort of museum how Serbian villages loked alike over history. Be sure to have map if you go by car as there are many roads but only few going there.

Sirogojno is a small village 25 km from the main tourist resort of the mountin Zlatibor. It is one of the first ethno villages in Serbia and probably the best. 40 years ago woman knitters from that village became very popular in Yugoslavia and Europe by knitting beautiful woolen sweaters made from Islandic wool and designed by professional fashion designers....

Sirogojno is a open air museum of old Serbian houses. There are some texts in English, but mainly in Serbian. You can stay a night there or eat in a small restaurant. Just outside the village are a couple kiosks, which sells home made local wool products (jackets, socks etc.). The quality of the wool is very high and this... More

Wish more people visited this place as you can see the life as it was there in the second half of the 19th century. Unfortunately, not too much to do for the kids - chasing chickens at the entrance was a blast for mine :) Wish they did a better job to guide people around.
