Sitting atop a picturesque hill, Mecavnik represents a settlement from the imagination of the film director Emir Kusturica, featuring wooden houses and museums in a rustic setting. Inspired by his own movie "Life is a Miracle," Kusturica created a place loyal to tradition and rebelling against routine, lost between reality and fairy tales. Here you'll see centuries-old log cabins that were transported in pieces and rebuilt at the site, as well as a car that was eaten by pigs in one of his movies. Walk along paved wooden cubes, encounter surreal sculptures, and visit galleries of art and poetry. The site also has a church, accommodations, and numerous recreational and entertainment facilities, including a swimming pool, fitness club, and disco.

It is always great to stop by Mećavnik and have a nice cup of coffee or have a breakfast. Always pleasant staff and just such a peaceful and beautiful place to visit. more »
A lovely combination of a filming sight for traditional Serbian wooden homes which are also available for rent. The restaurants serve traditional local fare, the cafeterias and terraces are ample, comfortable, protected open-air venues with wonderful views. There are interesting props, street names in homage to Hollywood and the Serbian film industry.
It's very interesting to see. Cute mountain village in old style with great views. There is a restaurant there, couple of coffee shops a swimming pool, tennis courts and of course a cinema. You can visit shortly or you can rent a suite and stay for a while. I also like how streets are named after famous people from the film industry.
