MORNING: Take an early morning journey from Kraljevo to Žiča Monastery. Žiča is the joint endowment of King Stefan the First-crowned and his brother St. Sava and the former seat of the Serbian autonomous Archbishopric built in 1218. The art and peaceful atmosphere of Žiča will take you to the atmosphere of medieval times long ago, while the affable nuns will tell you interesting stories about the past and present life in the monastery.

LUNCH: From Žiča Monastery enjoy a longer walk (around 4 km) to the town of Kraljevo, crossing the Ibar river at the end. Now, you deserve some relaxation and lunch in the “Etno brvnara” restaurant in Kraljevo.

AFTERNOON: After lunch, take a walk from the central Square of Serbian Warriors to the National Museum and the observation deck on the quay by the Ibar river.
