    What to Expect
    After meeting at arranged point (your hotel or other place of your stay) you will be driven to your first point on the itinerary, the Monastery Ravanica. This 14th century monastery was founded by Serbian prince Lazar, who fought the most important battle in Serbian history against Ottoman Turks in 1389. This monastery also represents beginning of the Morava architecture style, a unique Serbian style of medieval sacral architecture which marked the period from the late 14th century till the end of medieval Serbian state in the mid-15th century.

    From Ravanica the road takes us through mountains of East Serbia to the one of the most famous caves in Serbia, Resava cave. This 2380m long cave is discovered in 1960s and its calculated age is 80 million years. The area available for visitors is 800m long and it has four halls with different layout and cave jewels.

    Usually caves are connected to waterfalls, it is the same here, from Resava cave, you are moving to the Veliki buk waterfall, which is maybe not the biggest you have seen, but it’ll charm you with its beauty, clear water and intact nature which surrounds it. On the top of it all, like a cherry on the top, restaurants around waterfall will serve us with delicious trout or with traditional food from the area, whatever you find more after your taste.

    After lunch your last stop for the day is probably the most monumental Monastery from Morava architecture style, Manasija Monastery.  The early 15th century monastery founded by despot Stefan, the son of prince Lazar, who was one of the most beloved and appreciated Serbian rulers ever. He was not only a ruler, he was also a poet, writer, art lover and great humanist of the time, that is why the history attached the “beloved” title to his name. The monastery itself is breath-taking at first sight, with its 15m tall fortification walls and 35m high main tower surrounding the Holy Trinity church and monastery buildings, it will definitely won’t leave you indifferent.

    From Manasija monastery you will start your trip back to Belgrade, which you’ll reach in the early evening hours.
