A Village in the Mountains. A Quick Visit of Pakleštica [Serbia]

Pakleštica, a small village in the mountains in Serbia, was in my itineary as one of the places to see while exploring the area around Zavojsko Lake. Some photos seen while planning the trip let me assume that I can find there something that is quite rare to see nowadays—old cabins which looked as if they were from a different century. So, despite the fact that visiting this place meant for me going a few kilometres out of the way I decided to go for it and extend my hike a bit.

So, a few kilometres later, only a river was left to cross in order to reach Pakleštica.

The first thing that the eyes catch there is a plenty of old houses—so old that it seems that they remember how the place looked like hundred years ago. Futhermore, some of them are in such condition that it’s not sure whether someone still lives there or they are already abandoned.

One the other hand, there are also some new cars on the streets which remind you that you didn’t make the trip to the past—in case you by chance forget where you are enjoying the beauty of old cabins. They also create an incredible contrast—a shiny vehicle is something that looks a bit weird near a decaying house.

As mentioned previously, the village is situated in the mountains, so it’s surrounded by breathtaking landscapes which which you see everytime when you look around.
