Rajska hollow rock is one of the lesser-known natural monuments in Serbia. It is a true hidden treasure located in eastern Serbia, on the east side of Deli Jovan, on the river Zamna. The tunnel cave and overgrowth in the Zamna Canyon are protected as a natural monument. They are classified in the first category of protected areas of exceptional international and national importance. Paradise overgrowth has been placed under protection due to the preservation of specific forest vegetation, including tertiary and endemic species, as well as extremely diverse fauna.

Just a few kilometers away, the canyon of the Vratna River is another natural wonder worth exploring. The canyon is known for its stone gates and unusual whirlpools, which create unique stone bridges - overgrowths. On its course of about twenty kilometers, the river Vratna passes through three stone arches or gates: Suva prerast, Velika prerast, and Mala prerast. These stone bridges are protected because of their specific forest vegetation and fauna diversity.

If you like adventures in untouched nature, a hiking tour through the Vratna Canyon is something you should not miss. The tour includes a visit to Zamna Canyon and Rajska Prerast, allowing you to enjoy the picturesque landscapes. These experiences will allow you to connect with nature uniquely and discover the hidden wonders of Eastern Serbia.
