A Very cute and nice place to stay. We stayed there for one night in a cute little cabin. There is not much luxury, but you don’t expect that in a place like this. We had a little kitchen and a fridge. It’s so peaceful...More

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...More

Very nice open air museum, not spoiled by any commercial modern details like you can find in other similar complexes. Entrance is cheap, it's educational, it's original like it was back then. They serve really nice homemade brandy and traditional domestic coffee in one of...More

I often think of the time we spent a Sirogojno, with our young son, back in 2009. Watching the hay being mown with scythes, sitting reading or drawing, by a fire, being around the beautiful vernacular rural buildings of the old Balkans, and eating the...More

Zlatibor is a wintersports centre. The mountains were nice in summer but check the weather before going by car and be prepared. I suppose that Sirogojno is closed in winter.

Western Siberia itinerary help needed (4 Replies)
This summer my wife and I will be doing a 3 month road trip with our own car across the Balkans, as part of one year traveling. We'll be visiting Serbia too. We'll be entering Serbia coming from Montenegro after visiting Durmitor NP. Our intended Serbia itinerary is as follows: Kamena Gora - Nova Varos/Uvac - Zlatibor/Sirogojno village - Mokra Gora/Drvengrad - Tara NP - Bajina Basta/house in Drina river - Kadinjaca Memorial - Ovcar-Kablar Gorge - Topola/Oplenac monastery - Belgrade - Novi...More

I'd suggest Perm - Tyumen - Omsk - Cheyabinsk - Novosibirsk... Oh wait, you actually want *Serbia*? Well, we're used to being confused with a Russian province... :P Seriously, your itinerary looks reasonable, maybe slightly ambitious for five days, but entirely doable and with a fine selection of places to visit... You seem to have done the homework well (apart from the thread title). Generally, five days will be fine if you're the type of traveler that does not like (or has limited time)...More
