This is the highest mountain in southwest Serbia with Janko’s Stone peak at its highest (1,833 m).

It is declared an air spa and the first category Nature Park in 2000. Also, Golija was declared the Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2001.

It is abundant in forests, clean mountain water springs, a variety of herbs, and wildlife.


Given that the mountain covers a vast territory, it takes days to explore its villages, hills or to stop by a few local monasteries. The highest peak often sticks out of the density of clouds beneath or it can provide a magnificent view on a clear day.
