Located on Mećavnik hill in Mokra Gora nature park, the meeting point of two beautiful Serbian mountains Tara and Zlatibor, ethno village “Drvengrad” is a product of famous Hollywood film director Emir Kusturica’s imagination, and was built for the production of his film “Life is a miracle”. Around the world it is better known as Kustendorf “Drvengrad” is an ethno village with main street leading from the entrance on one end to a small wooden Christian-orthodox Russian Cabin style church on the other.
Streets in the village are named after some famous people.
The streets are named after famous personalities like Cuban revolutionary Ernesto Che Guevara & Diego Armando Maradona. One street is named after the famous tennis player Novak Djokovic “Drvengrad” has an art gallery, a library, a cinema called “Underground”, a cake shop with home made sweets, a restaurant with traditional Serbian cuisine, a souvenir shop etc.
Somewhat fantastic and mystical atmosphere of the place that actually resembles a fairy tale town, is additionally amplified by wooden birds placed on the upper plateau of its main square.
In 2005 the Brussels based “Philippe Rotthier foundation for architecture” has named “Drvengrad” the best architectural achievement in Europe in past three years. This ethno village was also awarded a four-star city-hotel status.
