Around one hour from Uzice by bus, Mokra Gora is definitely a place to see. First for the Sargan Eight Railway, a lovely little train that goes through the gorgeous mountains of western Serbia.

This big square, too large for a town of modest size, is the meeting pont for the young people at night. In summer the cafés put their chairs in the outside, and the square seem more animated, but in spite of this the square seems too large, and lacks of any focal point. When I saw this square at first I said: "it seems like it lacks something...more

To move around Uzice you just need to walk, but if you want to go to Mokra Gora or Zlatibor, you need to take the bus from the station, near the river. Ask the driver where to stop, and he will advice you when you arrive. Another option we did to return from Mokra Gora, because there are very few buses to come back to Uzice, was autostop.
