What to Expect
After departing Sarajevo in the morning 8 AM we’ll take beautiful 1 hour ride to reach Rogatica and first stop of the day, Borak Stećci necropolis near the Burati village. This hidden gem deep in the misty forrests of East Bosnia just recently inscribed as UNESCO World heritage, so we surely make a visit there.

Later we continue for one more hour of ride through mountain parts of Bosnia before we meet up with turquoise Drina river canyon and arrive to Višegrad.

Višegrad is home to UNESCO heritage too, an Ottoman time bridge built in 1577. by the Grand Vizier Mehmed Pasa Sokolovic.

The book: “Bridge Over Drina” by Bosnian and Travnik born, World famous Nobel Prize winner, Yugoslav writer Ivo Andrić has given most of the glory to this amazing place.

As soon as we see the Bridge and take the river cruise through amazingly green Drina river, we’ll explore stone town of Andrićgrad (eng.Andrić town). Small, stone made town, recently built, named and dedicated after novelist Ivo Andrić.

After Višegrad, we’ll continue driving towards east Bosnian border and on the way will pay visit to one of the most important Serbian Orthodox monasteries, Dobrun Monastery. Originally built in 1343 with frescoes preserved until today is ideal stop to learn more about local history.

Later on, time to cross the Bosnia to Serbia border and as soon as we do, we will enter amazing area of nature park of “Šargan-Mokra Gora”.

Next stop (for lunch possibly) will be ethno village of Drvengrad (eng.Timber Town) also know as Küstendorf and Mećavnik. Village-town designed by the movie director Emir Kusturica for his movie “Life is Miracle”.

As soon as finished at Drvengrad we are about to take train ride, but not just any train ride, we will do the famous “Šargan Eight”.

The Šargan Eight is narrow gauge (760mm) steam railway originally built in 1925., famously called Ćira (Chira). Once it used to connect Sarajevo and Belgrade, and the name “eight” origins from the pure shape of the track which if looked from the sky looks like number 8.

Road towards Belgrade will take us explore amazing area of one of the most beautiful National Parks in Serbia - National Park Tara.

National Park Tara (declared in 1981.) with its biological diversity is one of the most amazing areas if whole Serbia, offering great nature experiences, stunning views, hiking and trekking opportunities.

One of the most important stops will be stunning viewpoint of “Banjska Stena” which offers us amazing panorama of Perućac Lake on Drina river, which naturally borders Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia.

Generally after Tara National Park explorations, rest of roughly three hours ride to Belgrade will take us through Bajina Basta town and few other interesting locations such as "House on Drina", where we hope to be no later than 9 pm as this is quite long daytour.
