Mecavnik, Mokra Gora

Sitting atop a picturesque hill, Mecavnik represents a settlement from the imagination of the film director Emir Kusturica, featuring wooden houses and museums in a rustic setting. Inspired by his own movie "Life is a Miracle," Kusturica created a place loyal to tradition and rebelling against routine, lost between reality and fairy tales. Here you'll see centuries-old log cabins that were transported in pieces and rebuilt at the site, as well as a car that was eaten by pigs in one of his movies. Walk along paved wooden cubes, encounter surreal sculptures, and visit galleries of art and poetry. The site also has a church, accommodations, and numerous recreational and entertainment facilities, including a swimming pool, fitness club, and disco.

  • A lovely combination of a filming sight for traditional Serbian wooden homes which are also available for rent. The restaurants serve traditional local fare, the cafeterias and terraces are ample, comfortable, protected open-air venues with wonderful views. There are interesting props, street names in homage to Hollywood and the Serbian film industry.
  • It's very interesting to see. Cute mountain village in old style with great views. There is a restaurant there, couple of coffee shops a swimming pool, tennis courts and of course a cinema. You can visit shortly or you can rent a suite and stay for a while. I also like how streets are named after famous people from the film industry.
