Enjoy a day out of the city, explore Avala mountain, ride horses, feed animals on the farm, eat domestic food


Only ten kilometers from Belgrade lies Avala, a smallish mountain (511m) with ancient mining passages reaching deep in its womb. A symbol of Belgrade is the Avala Tower, with its 204, 8 meters, the tallest building in Balkans, was opened in 2010, beneath the location of the old tower destroyed in 1999, during the NATO bombing.
On the slopes of Avala, just 15 km from Belgrade, lies a village called Ripanj, where we will visit Srdjan and Milena on their farm. They are both highly educated and talented artists, who decided to live far away from the city fuss. On their farm, you can see domestic animals (hen, donkeys, cows, horses, dogs), ride horses, or even try some of medieval serbian knights games, or help our hosts with their daily chores. After getting tired of a hard work, you will be served traditional food made from their own products with extraordinary wine and live music, as our hosts are professional musicians.

Itinerary

We start in the morning from Belgrade. On our way to Avala, we will stop at beautiful Rakovica monastery from 14th century, where the most popular and respected serbian Patriarch Pavle was burried.
From there, we are heading to the Avala mountin, where we will enjoy most beautiful landscapes, and visit few significant monuments. It is possible to enter Avala tower if you wish.
After a two hours spent on the mountain, we will visit Srdjan and Milena's farm and try to be a farmers for a day. Most important, we will try real domestic and organic food from the farm: homemade cheese, ham, vegetables, etc, and of course domestic fruit wine and serbian rakija ( strong alcoholic liquor made from plums, or pears, etc)
at the evening, we are going back to Belgrade.
