MONASTERIES MANASIJA AND RAVANICA, THE CAVE RESAVA AND WATERFALL LISINE
It is the most popular private day trip from Belgrade. A tour in which you will be introduced with natural beauties such as 4.5km long caves and a waterfall whose sound you can hear while enjoying food specialties of this part of Serbia, and you will also learn about cultural heritage of Serbian medieval monasteries. To this part of Serbia at the base of Kucaj it only takes about two and a half hours driving, which is exciting itself.
Monastery Manasija (also called Resava) is one of the most important monuments of Serbian culture. This foundation of the despot Stefan Lazarević began to be built in 1407 and was completed in 1418. The medieval monastery is surrounded by large walls that were built for defense. Optionally, you can also visit Ravanica Monastery, which is about 20 kilometres away from the route, which would affect the duration of the tour.
The largest and the most interesting cave for tourists in Serbia is Resava cave. It was accidentally discovered only in 1962 and 10 years later it was made open to the public even though it continues to be explored today. The arranged path for tourists is 800 meters, the explored part is 2850 meters long and the measured part is 4500 meters long. It is rich with cave jewelry about 45 million years old. The entrance ticket into the cave and sightseeing with the guide costs only 300 dinars.
LISINE WATERFALL, VELIKI BUK
At the end of these one-day tours we visit the base of Mount Beljanica where a 25 meters high waterfall Lisine is located, on the Vrelo river. 800 meters away from there is a small waterfall Vrelo, the source of the clean mountain river Vrelo, which can be reached by the forest path along the river itself. Numerous restaurants located on the river banks are real tourist attraction. Smoked trout or even fresh from the restaurant pond, veal or Homolj lamb made in a traditional Balcan sač or peka … … are dishes that you will certainly remember.
