Vrnjačka Banja

share

Vrnjačka Banja is one of the most popular spa destinations in Serbia thanks to its thermal waters with healing powers for many diseases, which have been used for their curative properties ever since the days of the Roman Empire. The waters range from cold to body temperature warm, and are all located in the park in the centre of town, open to the public. Prince Miloš Obrenović was the one who transformed Vrnjačka Banja into a tourist destination at the beginning of the 19th century, and ever since those times it has received a great number of tourists seeking treatment and relaxation.

The small town in Raška District, in Central Serbia has only some 10,000 inhabitants, which makes it the perfect place for a relaxing weekend getaway form the noise of a big city. The climate of the area is especially favourable, with mild winters as well as summers. An interesting thing is that it holds the Guinness World Record for the largest Opanak, a type of Serbian peasant shoe, made by a local shoemaker in 2006. Not far from Vrnjačka Banja there are several cultural monuments from mediaeval times, which are under the protection of UNESCO. Some of the most important buildings near Vrnjačka Banja are Žiča, Sopoćani and Studenica Monasteries, known for their long, rich history.
