Experience the hidden beauty of one of the most beautiful caves in Serbia
Only 19 km from the center of Zlatibor, in the hamlet of Stopići, a unique monument of nature awaits you, a protected natural asset of exceptional importance that leaves visitors breathless – Stopića cave. Located on the northeastern side of the Zlatibor mountain, on the Zlatibor – Sirogojno road, between the villages of Rožanstvo and Trnava, the cave is a treasure trove of natural beauty that nature has patiently sculpted over millennia.
The entrance to the cave is located at 711 meters above sea level and is the second largest cave opening in Serbia. The cave is made up of five units: the Light Hall, the Dark Hall, the Great Hall with Baths, the Canal with Baths and the River Canal, the first four of which are open for visits.
Platforms and well-maintained paths will allow you to enjoy the view of imposing natural formations, additionally embellished with fantastic lighting, in silence, complemented only by the sound of water. During your walk through the cave, you will see unique natural phenomena such as the well-known stalactites and stalagmites, but also specific openings in the ceiling called vigledi, large bathtubs that plunge up to 7 m deep, as well as the river canal of the Trnava Stream. Look carefully at the surrounding areas, because you can see bats and white crabs that have lost their natural pigment due to the lack of light.
More than a hundred thousand tourists from all over the world visit the cave every year.
