Situated on the slopes of the mountains of Ozren and Rtanj, surrounded by natural sources of oxigen and ozone, on the banks of sometimes peaceful and sometimes rapid noisy river Moravica – lies Sokobanja.
This urban point showing a number of evidence of its long existence is now the center of the first ecological municipality in Serbia. Altitude of Sokobanja, negative ionization of air, natural crossing point of mild winds above the town, and the abundant springs of thermal water offer a magical experience. The experience has in a most appropriate manner been expressed by Serbian famous comedian Branislav Nusic: “Sokobanja, Sokograd – one comes old and leaves young”. Nusic and many other important people, such as the winner of the Nobel Prize, writer Ivo Andric, have always returned to Sokobanja till the end of their lives. Sokobanja is a holiday heaven. An active one, of course. Whether you will decide to walk around the spa from shade to shade in summer, or from scenery to scenery in spring, fall or winter; whether you will choose your favourite sport, or go to the pool, to the river, to the nearby Bovan Lake for a swim and to enjoy fishing, in the mountain to find some sweet-smelling medical herbs, with which these slopes are the richest in Europe, for your own home pharmacy; whether you will visit the library, chess club, museum, gallery, cafe, find some night entertainment… all the time you will be filling your lungs with oxigen, your step getting brisker and brisker; respiration easier you will be relaxing and resting.
