Situated in the heart of Stara Planina, Gostuša is one of the oldest and most remote villages in the Pirot region. The main attractions are its remarkable houses, rising on a hillside and covered – from base to roof – with plates made of authentic Stara Planina stone.

The village is located east of Lake Zavoj, 25km from Pirot. Some households offer homestays; contact Pirot Tourist Information Centre for assistance.
