Uvac and Novi-Pazar 31.08.2018
It's a crime to visit Serbia and do not visit Uvac meanders. However there's a tricky thing: the way to all viewpoints which are recommended on forums is very complicated and long. About an hour offroad and then about a couple of hours walking.
This was exactly the way I was going to use. Accidentally I got in a talk with cashier guy in the shop. His English was good (which is rare in Serbia), so I decided that it's my only chance to verify the way to a viewpoint. By a lucky shot this guy was experienced hiker and he suggested to go with me and show a very good spot which can be accessed much easier.
40 minutes and here we are. Though we arrived way too early. It still was very foggy. The air was wet. Spiders web looked absolutely fantastic. The water on it made it look like frozen. Unfortunately photo doesn't really show it in the way it was.
So we had to wait till the fog goes away.
There is already visible a hardly accessible viewpoint on the other side. Molitva. And a group of tourists. It was just 9 in the morning. Looks like they didn't sleep at all (:
Finally it's clear. The view is astonishing. It was absolutely worth it to visit this place.
The weather is much colder in river area than in any other point nearby. The area is surrounded by hills, that's why.
Novi-Pazar. Wonderful town.
Book market. They're getting ready to school.
If I would wake up in this town, the last thing I'd think is that it's Serbia. It looks more like Turkey or Middle East, but definitely not Serbia.
Lots of mosques. Shops with Muslim clothes.
Women in Muslim clothes.
Friday pray time.
Death notes which hint that it's still Balkans.
In Novi-Pazar I visited very strange cafe. For 3 cups of very fine Turkish coffee I was charged just 100 dinar (0.9 euro). It turned out I had only 1000 dinars, but the guy didn't have a change. He asked me to check if I have some lesser money. I found around 60 dinars (0.5 euro) and that was enough! Even in Bosnia the coffee was more expensive (:
Though I think that's an exception. There has to be something special about the place. But I'll never know that.
Studenica monastery. XII century.
There are even ancient picture fragments. Very good.
