Compared to the other regions of Serbia, its eastern area, dominated by the small part of the Carpathian Mountains, is less known and visited, although it has unprecedented and wild natural beauties. A visitor with a bit of an adventurous spirit can enjoy the beauty of these areas in a special way. One of the most beautiful peaks in Serbia is located right here. Rtanj Mountain, which has the shape of an almost regular pyramid, will be reason enough for you to go hiking. Lovers of spa tourism will be delighted by Sokobanja, located in the wide valley of the Moravica River, between Ozren and Rtanj mountains. Sokobanja Spa and its surroundings represent a large park with the famous Ripaljka waterfall and the artificial Bovan Lake. This spa got its name from the Soko-grad fortress, which is located on a high rock, and was built in the Middle Ages on the remains of a Roman fortification.
