Mokra Gora Things to Do
Jatare (read Yatare) is just 1 stop along the Shargan Eight path. It's got a small restaurant where you can buy ice cream as well.
The 1st thing you'll notice the minute you step out of the train is the waterfall. And, if you go 88 steps up, you'll have a beautiful view over the surrounding nature.Related to:

On the top of Mecavnik Hill, right above Mokra Gora railway station, there's this unique ethno village created by world famous director Emir Kusturica. It's called Wooden Town (Drven Grad) because it consists of wooden buildings, typical for the mountain villages of Tara and Zlatibor. Even the road of this magical town is wooden.
The town has its own cinema, library, gallery, souvenir shop, church, traditional restaurant and coffee shop, but there's still a lot to be done.

Mokra Gora Local Customs
If you have some problems with eyes, people here believe that water from Bele Vode (White Waters) will cure you. You just have to wash your face with the water here. Who knows, perhaps they're right!?
But there's another 1 I like better- it's said that if you touch the so-called crazy stone (ludi kamen) you'll have good luck!
