Website of Locality
Near Zaječar is the city of Knjaževac, which lies on the confluence three rivers which are spanned by a large number of bridges and, in the centre of the town, there is the old trading and craftsmen’s district of “Old Bazaar”. Near the city visitors can enjoy the Ravna Archaeo-Ethno Park, located 8 km north of Knjaževac. The concept of the park, as a kind of open air museum, is associated with the beginning of systematic archaeological excavations at the Timacum Minus site. It was opened in the late 1980s and has since attracted the attention of numerous visitors, expert teams, and domestic and foreign tourists. http://www.muzejknjazevac.org.rs
