Ribarska Banja is one of the oldest spas in Serbia.During its centuries-old history, it was visited by many of Serbia’s crowned heads, earning the nickname “royal spa”.
It is particularly beneficial for bone structure and strengthening the skeletal system, as well for disease prevention and reinvigoration of the whole body.
A combination of therapeutic water and clean air from the nearby Jastrebac mountain provides stress relief and relaxes the body and soul.
In addition to the usual wellness and spa programs, massages, saunas, a salt room and outdoor and indoor swimming pools, here you can also experience a proper royal treatment – a pearl bath, in the very same bathtub that was once used by Serbian Queen Draga.
As clean air and physical activity have beneficial effects on both mental and physical health, visitors are advised to enjoy rafting along the South Morava.
Visit Saint Roman’s Monastery, which houses the heart of Count Rayevsky (after whom the character of Vronsky in the novel Anna Karenina was modelled), a Russian nobleman who heroically gave his life fighting for Serbia against the Turkish army.
