“This is how I imagine heaven,” said Dr. Aitken Clark, the director of the European Foundation for the Conservation of Nature and National Parks, the first time he saw the Tara Mountain.
Tara is located in the utmost west of Serbia, at the very border with Bosnia and Herzegovina. The canyon of the Drina River is in the northwest, and the Kremna Valley connects it with the Zlatibor Mountains in the southeast. The remoteness contributed to this mountain becoming a secluded and unique place for all nature lovers. In 1981 one part of the Tara Mountain was declared a national park, since it is an area with a large number of diverse natural ecosystems of national importance, extraordinary landscape, and historical heritage, in which man lives together with nature.
