Tara National Park in Western Serbia
Recently I saw the movie "Zavet" by Serbian director Emir Kusturica. He shot the movie in Uzice and in the area of Tara National Park (in Western Serbia).
If you plan to visit this beautiful place you will be rewarded with a picturesque scenery (hills in dense forest and grass vegetation, spots with beautiful view, waterfalls, rivers and the wonderful Drina canyon with its impressive vertical cliffs)
and natural rarities - e.g. endemic species like the monumental Serbian spruce (Picea Omorika found by Serbian botanist Josif Pancic).
You can reach the National Park from little town of Bajina Basta, and on the way to tara is one of the most attractive cultural-historical values of this region: the Raca Monastery.
To get in mood for this wonderful place, see Kusturica's movie and download the beautiful presentation of Tara National Park. More information on the english Tara Site here.
