A stop at Kusturica's Ethno village Drvengrad | Отбивка в Дрвенград


On my way to Bosnia and Herzegovina, we made a quick stop in the famous Serbian Ethno village Drvengrad (wooden village), situated in the Zlatibor District. We were greeted by wooden houses, green backyards, tiny streets and blossoming trees.

По пътя към Босна и Херцеговина спряхме в западносръбското етно село Дрвенград. Разположено в Златибор, още по пътя се разкри панорамна гледка към него. Посрещнаха ни китни дървени къщурки, чиито покриви са мислени в руски стил, зелени пространства около тях, криволичещи улици и цъфнали дръвчета.




Although the village is small itself, I was eager to see every single house and to take a photo of it because they were all unique. I have never been to such a village before so I was very impressed. It was more than obvious that Emir Kusturica gave the best of him to build this village. 

Въпреки че размерите на селото не са големи, влизайки в него, бързах да обиколя всяка една улица и да видя и снимам всяка една къща. За първи път попадах на такова място и бях очарована от него. Старанието и любовта, с която Емир Кустурица е сътворил това място, бяха очевидни. 




The famous Serbian filmmaker decided to build it after he lost his home city (Sarajevo) in the war. The other name of Drvengrad is Kustendorf (Kustu – Kusturica and dorf (DE) – village). The third name of the village is Saringrad (colourful town).

Дрвенград е домът на известния сръбски режисьор, който след като губи родния си град Сараево във войната, решава да си построи свой според собствените си представи. Кустендорф е другото му име и мен доста ме озадачи немското му звучене. Всъщност идва от Кустурица (Kustu) и dorf (село на немски) – селото на Кустурица. Дрвенград е ясно от какво идва, но още по-интересно е, че има и трето име – Шаринград (шарен град). 





Drvengrad is the home of a movie festival that is being held here every year. The idea is to present not only Serbian but movies from all around the world. Some of the most famous actors have visited the village. Johnny Depp was one of them. 

От 2008г. насам се провежда фестивал, на който се представят филми не само от Сърбия, но от целия свят. Някои доста известни актьори са посещавали Дрвенград. Джони Деп е един от тях. 



Entering Drvengrad I found myself on the main square. There was a church at the end of it – named after the Serbian Archbishop St. Sava. Every single house here was built in honour of a famous person – Nikola Tesla, Ernesto Che Guevara, Diego Maradona, Novak Djokovic, Serbian and worldwide actors, directors, writers and musicians. There were also wooden stalls where they were selling souvenirs and local production.

Влизайки в Дрвенград ни посрещна площадът, в края на който се извисяваше църквата Св. Сава. Тук всяка къща е посветена на известна личност – Никола Тесла, Ернесто Че Гевара, Диего Марадона, Новак Джокович, сръбски и световни актьори, филмови режисьори, писатели, музиканти. На всеки няколко метра имаше къщурки, в които продаваха сувенири и продукти местно производство. 



Drvengrad has also a swimming pool, a cinema, a gymnasium, a sport hall, a restaurant, a sweetery, etc. 

На територията на Дрвенград има басейн, кино, гимназия, сауна, спортна зала, ресторант, сладкарница и др. 





The weather that day was lovely and we enjoyed walking around under the heating sun. Besides that, I am sure that this place is magical during winter. Accommodation is also available and it must be an exceptional experience. Unfortunately, I visited Drvengrad for less than an hour so I’d be happy to come back again.

Времето в този пролетен ден беше хубаво и посетителите се наслаждаваха на щедрото слънце. Въпреки това, предполагам, че ще е интересно да се види и през зимата, когато е скрито под снежна покривка. Тук може да се нощува в къщите за гости и съм сигурна, че е доста интересно преживяване. Престоят ми тук беше не повече от час и затова бих се радвала да се върна за по-дълго.

  6. I'm so happy to see you in my country and especially in Drvengrad. I visited it almost a year ago and these photos have brought me so many memories :) I'm glad you liked it and don't worry, you practically saw the most important, although if you go back one day, I do recommend staying there for a night. Actually, my room was next to Maradona door and it was lovely, maybe even more charming than the exterior :)
    Hope you're doing well! :)

  7. Drvengrad may be a small village but it certainly is not lacking in charm. It's really cool how each house is unique in it's details. It looks so lovely this time of year but I'm sure it would be pretty amazing covered in snow during the winter as well. Hope you're enjoying a fantastic week Sany!
