Sirogojno is a village museum which offers its visitors a short guide thorugh the everyday life and architecture of old rural settlements of Western Serbia. Unlike similar moder complexes, which tend to be quite boring, the Sirogojno village is far from it and gives you a very interesting insight into the history and architecture of this part of Serbia. The nature is also amazing around Sirogojno. All in all, totally worth visiting!

In the village of Sirogojno there is an open-air museum "old village". Houses were brought from all parts of Zlatibor to be presented and preserved here. The museum has two parts. The first is a collection of houses that have preserved their original appearance and purpose, and they make up the museum's permanent exhibition. The second group consists of houses that have preserved their original appearance but have also been adapted to tourist needs. The museum offers Zlatibor dishes prepared in the traditional way.

We were lucky to arrive towards end of the day when the village was almost deserted. It's beautifully presented and one of the most authentic open air village museums we have ever visited. You can wander around and the inside of the houses are set up to explain about different professions or ways of living. I heard you can even stay here which would be marvellous. Has a wonderful cafe with theee best apple cake and shlivovitsa. The nearby village was also site of an evacuation of Allied airmen during WWII. The town paid dearly at hands of the Nazis for helping. Well worth a visit from Zlatibor.

The moment i stepped into this gated place, it made me time travel back to the ages when the folks of this village lived. Living in huts and cottages, and surrounded by lush green pastures grasslands, the natives did survive on just the basics.

Every cottage in this village had a tale to tell.

A beautiful village. The houses and the setting that were made evoke the true spirit of ancient times. There is a map on the tickets and each box is marked, which is very useful because even though it is a smaller setting, it is easy to get lost. Each house nicely explains where she came from and what she served for and to whom she belonged. The houses are authentic, not built but only transferred from the original location. Recommendations to all, the ticket is 150 din per person.

I visited your village in 1985 and I have thought of it repeatedly since then.
Aside from the beauty of the region, in Old Serbia, the natural warmth of the Serbs is everywhere. I am an American but Serbian hospitality must be unrivaled. I was treated better by Serbian strangers than my own family in the U.S. As I recall there is even a term for that kind of hospitality. It's "gostolube" (or something like that). It means "guest lover" and it is a deeply held value of those wonderful folks. Just thinking of their many kindnesses still brings tears to my eyes.
It has been too long since I was there so I'm thinking of planning my next visit. My Canadian wife was absolutely emotionally overwhelmed by those gracious and graceful Serbs.
I eagerly look forward to my return trip

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. Today they use their own wool and designs are less attractive but one can still find nice pieces in the small improvised market in the village.
Ethno village consists of number of old wooden houses which are open for tourists to see how people lived and worked in the past. All exhibits are authentic. Some of these houses are converted to tourist apartments with modern accessories (including TV) and one large house is a restaurant which offers local specialities (pies, localy made fruit djuices, herbal tees, cabbage, lamb under the bell, local plum brendy, etc.) It is always full of tourists and you have to wait to get a free table. The prices are very affordable.
In some of the houses one can see complete old handicrafts workshop (pottery, blacksmith etc.).

Visited this place while on tour. We were lucky to have a pre ordered lunch which consisted of almost all the items on the menu. Best food in western Serbia! A brisk 20 minute tour of the ethno village was a novel experience. Good place for a halt while driving from Belgrade/ Novi Saad to Zlatibor

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.

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.
