The hidden beauties of Serbia - SISEVAC

Many of you have probably never heard of this place. This is the right place to rest and enjoy nature, here you can walk, swim in the pool with thermal water and try the excellent cuisine and fine wines.

Sisevac is located in central Serbia, near the town of Cuprija, in the region of Pomoravski. Follow the E-75 motorway folloqing the direction for Nis, exit in Cuprija and follow the signs to the village of Senje. The best way to explore this region is by bike, because it's the only way you can fully enjoy its beauty, but also those who will opt for the car will not make a mistake, because the road is very good. After passing through the village of Senje we continue to the monastery of Ravanica and then to Sisevac. The monastery Ravanica is located at the foot of the mountains Kucaj. If you have not visited this monument, this will be the perfect opportunity for a visit to the monastery of Ravanica, the endowment of Prince Lazar, where there are his remains. The monastery was built in the second half of the fourteenth century. The trail continues to Sisevac and Sisojevac that is 12 km far away from the Monastery. This road is really beautiful as it is completely surrounded by oak and beech trees and beautiful landscapes. Upon arrival in Sisojevac, there is a great restaurant with rooms for overnight stays, as well as a pond, a lap pool and a pool with thermal water, where guests can swim even in winter. Guests of the restaurant in Potocari Sisevac can enjoy a wide selection of different dishes and I would certainly recommend to try the fresh trout of thepond. Certainly this is the perfect place to relax with family and friends. The Monastery is located near the river Crnica in Sisevac, near the town of Cuprija, in Pomoravski. It was built in the late fourteenth century and over the centuries has been abandoned due to lack of funds for its maintenance. However, this magnificent building was restored in the second half of the twentieth century thanks to the Institute for Protection of Cultural Monuments. Near the monastery there's the entrance of one of the many caves in this area. This cave has been the subject of research of Serbian and foreign experts.
