Experience the hidden beauty of one of the most beautiful caves in Serbia

Stopića Cave is the second largest cave opening in Serbia. This impressive natural monument with a monumental entrance standing 18 meters high and between 30 and 40 meters wide offers a 1,600-meter walk through magnificent halls with unique geomorphological phenomena. The cave consists of five sections: the Light Hall, the Dark Hall, the Great Hall with Tubs, the Channel with Tubs, and the River Channel, of which the first four are open to visitors. Be a part of this unforgettable adventure in the heart of Zlatibor!

How to get to Stopića Cave:

By car: You can choose between two routes, both leading through the beautiful landscapes of the Zlatibor plains. The first route leads from Užice, via the main road to Zlatibor, but in the village of Mačkat, you need to turn onto a local road towards the village of Rožanstvo. The road to Rožanstvo and Sirogojno also leads from the center of Zlatibor. There is parking available for cars and tourist buses at the site. Stopića Cave is located between Rožanstvo and 3 kilometers from Sirogojno, also a significant destination in Zlatibor.

By bicycle: Riding a mountain bike (electric) from the center of Zlatibor to Stopića Cave is interesting, as the road is asphalted, not heavily trafficked, but has many ascents and is not suitable for family rides.

From the parking lot to Stopića Cave, there is a fenced pedestrian path, as well as several benches for resting. The path is not suitable for people with disabilities or baby strollers.

Platforms and well-maintained paths will allow you to enjoy the view of impressive natural formations in silence, complemented only by the sound of flowing water, further enhanced by fantastic lighting. During your walk through the cave, you will see unique natural phenomena such as well-known stalactites and stalagmites, as well as viglids – openings in the cave ceilings, rimstone pools that plunge up to 7 meters deep, and the river channel of Trnavski stream. Carefully observe the surroundings, as you may spot blind bats and white crayfish that have lost their natural pigment due to lack of light. The temperature in Stopića Cave is around 15°C throughout the year, except in winter when it’s slightly warmer inside than outside.
