    Here you still can hear the sound of water mills grinding grain and this way prolonging the tradition of preparing polenta of white cornmeal. In the villages housewifes make most delicious cheese and dairy dish. In Maýkat best smoked ham and sausages are being made and you can eat good lamb roast in any meat bakery or restaurant. Don't leave Zlatibor before you taste Zlatibor local speciality "komplet lepinja"!

    A recipy for preparing the Zlatibor komplet lepinja

    Note:lepinja is a type of flat bread -enough for one person. For one person you need:
    -1 lepinja
    -1 egg
    -1 soup spoon of old zlatibor milk cream
    -5 soup spoons of "pretop" (fat and sauce of lamb or pork roast -you can find it in each meat bakery)

    The most popular activity on Zlatibor is skiing, of course. There are nice slopes for the beginners with several cable lifts. Since it's a tame mountain, it's not recommended for ski adventurists, only for the beginners!

Zlatibor Favorites

  • stubline

    Walking around Zlatibor you'll often come across a tree trunk digged in the ground filled with clear spring water called "stubline" (hollow tree trunks). At the bottom of "stublina" (usually made of beech tree) there are small stones to filter water.Beside "stublina" there are usually two big stones to lean on while drinking.

  • snow

    Snowy scapes are the pearl of Zlatibor. The mountain is tame and you can hike around in the deep snow without worries and dangers. It's for easy hikers, and not for mountain climbers. I love how the snows sticks on the pines... Perhaps in winter it's rather a silver-pine, than golden-pine? :))

  • fairy tale houses

    There are many charming houses from fairy tales on Zlatibor, I was paritcularly fond of this one, lonely in the mountains, and couldn't resist taking a picture! Imagine a holiday in this pretty little house in the snow!!!
