A Day in Zlatibor

The popular weekend resort town of Zlatibor

It turns out that the bus system in Serbia is not as extensive as I had hoped, and accurate information about schedules and destinations is extremely difficult to obtain.  As a result, I found myself in the small resort town of Zlatibor en route to Tara National Park because that was the most convenient place I could get to from Belgrade. I took advantage of my day there by hiking and seeing some of the local sights. Although the mountains don’t quite rival the Andes, they were certainly a pleasant respite from the massive cities I’d been in for the previous few weeks.

A historical highlight was the monument to the wounded soldiers of Uzice, which was a rather modern looking stone structure just outside the main town. The defiant inscription on the monument reads: I won’t give you the sun in my eyes. I won’t give you the bread in my hand.
