Mountain Tara with endless evergreen and deciduous forests is one of the most beautiful corners of Serbia. Therefor, its no wonder that the old Slavic God Tar had chosen Tara for his home. According to the legend, the mountain was named after him. Tara is located in Western Serbia near Zlatibor and Mokra Gora, and it represents an area of exceptional natural beauties. It is the perfect destination for relaxation and recreation. The canyon of the Drina River in the north of the mountain range contributes to the already exceptional beauty of Tara. Lake Perućac on the Drina River and Zaovine lake are located at the foot of the mountain. Thanks to these extraordinary natural beauties and unique ambient, Tara is a true jewel among Serbian mountains. Bajina Bašta, Višegrad, ethno village Drvengrad and the unique “Šargan Eight” rail also can be visited as they are located at the foot of the mountain. You shouldn’t miss the opportunity to experience a unique steam train ride on the inaccessible terrain and the narrow eight-shaped railway track between Mokra Gora and Šargan.
