West Serbia

The characteristic of west Serbia is moody, hot-tempered and legendary river Drina. It is a really slow and plain river, which after all the windings through the mountains on its upper course deserves to rest. Next to Drina, near Loznica is Trsić, a village with buildings from the beginning of the XIX century. Drina River with a lake Zvornik has become a symbol of tourism in Serbia. In the area of Ljubovija ethno villages have already been built. About the heroic history of west Serbia many monuments remind us – battles at Mišar, Cer, near Valjevo…

In the second week of June, a popular "Regatta on Drina" is held. Besides sports on water, mountaineers are recommended to visit Bobija mountain (1272 m) and a gorge of Trešnjica. In this area, there are also 3 spas, good for people who have problems with rheumatism.
