Welcome to Tara National Park
The park’s main attraction is the vertigo-inducing Drina River canyon, the third-largest of its kind in the world. The gloriously green river of the same name slices through its cliffs, offering prime panoramas and ripper rafting; Tara’s two artificial lakes – Perućac and Zaovine – are ideal for calm-water kayaking.
Serbia’s largest population of endangered brown bears is found within Tara’s woods, though you’d be lucky (or unlucky, depending on your fear factor) to bump into any. The park is also home to foxes, lynxes, otters, deer and 130-plus types of birds, as well as over 1000 flora species, including the rare Pančić spruce.
