Nature was very generous to Sokobanja, and created heaven on earth. One can not decide what is more beautiful Sokograd, Lepterija, Ripaljka, Kalinovica as famous vacation areas, mountains Ozren and Rtanj famous for abundance of medicinal herbs, or river Moravica and Bovan Lake which is close to Sokobanja. It is one of the richest lakes in fish and it is very attractive for swimmers during summer.
Sokobanja is situated in the southeast of Serbia, between mountains Ozren (117 m) and Rtanj (1560 m), at the riverbanks of Moravica, at the height of 400 m above the sea level. Taking a highway. Sokobanja is 230 km away from Belgrade. It is one of the most visited places in the country, and belongs to a group of renowned tourist centers with the longest tradition of organized tourism.
Lepteria is a popular picnic place. It is only 1.5 km from the center of Soko Banja. From this place, by an easy hike (about 30 minutes), you can reach the ruins of an ancient city Soko Grad.
It is not unusual in Soko banja to find restaurants that offer different home made dishes for very low prices, like some sort of "special offers". What differs this restaurant is that it offers no less than 15 different dishes every single day, all of them really nice and fresh, for an unbelievable price of 140 dinars (less than 2 Euro). Starters and salads are not included in the offer, but even when you order them, the price is still quite low.
Favorite Dish: It is really difficult to choose, because they are all like from your grandmother's kitchen :)
