The Zlatiborians (Zlatiborci) are well-known for their intelligence and literacy. They are a really warm and welcoming group of folks. They like making pranks and fooling others, particularly visitors, but never with the intention of hurting them. They like assisting people.


Zlatiborians utilize the literary Serbian language in formal contexts. However, in informal contexts, the Traditional Zlatiborian and Neo-Zlatiborian languages are employed.

The Traditional Zlatiborian language is a dialect of Serbian. It is quite close to normal Serbian, however there are several distinctions. Knowing standard Serbian may be advantageous while conversing with a Zlatiborian peasant, although it is not always necessary. The Neo-Zlatiborian language is a hybrid of Traditional Zlatiborian and Literary Serbian.

English is not spoken in Zlatibor’s rural districts, although in the city (Kraljeve Vode and Cajetina), many people know a few words or can communicate in it. It is conceivable, though, to visit a hotel or restaurant where English is not spoken.

How to travel to Zlatibor

When you visit Zlatibor, you will most likely visit Kraljeve Vode. Kraljeve Vode is a tiny town with a contemporary and metropolitan feel (even more than Cajetina, the administrative centre of Zlatibor). It is linked to the rest of Zlatibor’s towns and settlements. Many people only mention Kraljeve Vode when they talk about Zlatibor.

The easiest method to go to Zlatibor is to first travel to Belgrade, Serbia’s capital, and then seek for a direct bus connection to Zlatibor. Zlatibor is served by bus routes that link it to the rest of Serbia and Montenegro.

You may also go to Zlatibor by rail from Belgrade and other larger cities, but you’ll finish up in one of Zlatibor’s villages, such as Semegnjevo, Susica, Sljivovica, or Jablanica. Despite its name, the Zlatibor Train Station (Zeleznicka stanica Zlatibor) is located in the settlement of Semegnjevo, 10 kilometers from Kraljeve Vode. Coming from there to Kraljeve Vode may be problematic since there aren’t many people who understand English, so it’s best to leave the train in the adjacent city of Uzice and then take a bus to Zlatibor. There are about 15 local buses that go from Užice to Kraljeve Vode (45 minutes)
