Jablanik i Medvednik

Jablanik and Medvednik are located near Valjevo. 

Jablanik represents the Dinaric mountain, with the highest altitude of 1274m. The mountain is specific for its extremely lush vegetation, of which beech forests predominate. Traces of trenches from the First World War can be seen under the highest peak of Jablanik. 

Medvednik is specific in its appearance, which as you approach it from the direction of Valjevo, resembles a lying bear. The highest point is at 1244 m. Like Jablanik, Medvednik is also characterized by beech forests, but also numerous medicinal plants.

On this exciting tour, we will have the opportunity to climb two Podrinje-Valjevo mountains in one day and view the fantastic surrounding landscapes from the top.
