The town of Zaječar is surrounded by the mountains of Tupižnica, and the slopes of the mountains Deli Jovana and Stara Planina are located in the central part of the Timočka Krajina. The territory is crossed by the Black and White Timok rivers, which merge and form the Veliki Timok that runs through the city of Zaječar. Not far from Zaječar is the Gamzigradska Banja spa with its inviting thermal mineral springs. In addition to its rich history, Zaječar can boast of Popov beach, the perfect place to enjoy the river Timok, with a well-organised playground for children, a sports fields and a park.
The Black River Basin, especially its mountainous backdrop, is one of the most beautiful landscapes in the Balkan Peninsula. Mount Rtanj significantly contributes to such an impression by peacefully rising from a broad base to its almost perfect pyramidal “Šiljak peak”. There are numerous legends about Rtanj, including stories about aliens, a wizard’s treasure, secret forces and its miraculous therapeutic powers.
