We were lucky to arrive towards end of the day when the village was almost deserted. It's beautifully presented and one of the most authentic open air village museums we have ever visited. You can wander around and the inside of the houses are set up to explain about different professions or ways of living. I heard you can even stay here which would be marvellous. Has a wonderful cafe with theee best apple cake and shlivovitsa. The nearby village was also site of an evacuation of Allied airmen during WWII. The town paid dearly at hands of the Nazis for helping. Well worth a visit from Zlatibor.

Sirogojno is a village museum which offers its visitors a short guide thorugh the everyday life and architecture of old rural settlements of Western Serbia. Unlike similar moder complexes, which tend to be quite boring, the Sirogojno village is far from it and gives you a very interesting insight into the history and architecture of this part of Serbia. The nature is also amazing around Sirogojno. All in all, totally worth visiting!

In the village of Sirogojno there is an open-air museum "old village". Houses were brought from all parts of Zlatibor to be presented and preserved here. The museum has two parts. The first is a collection of houses that have preserved their original appearance and purpose, and they make up the museum's permanent exhibition. The second group consists of houses that have preserved their original appearance but have also been adapted to tourist needs. The museum offers Zlatibor dishes prepared in the traditional way.

The moment i stepped into this gated place, it made me time travel back to the ages when the folks of this village lived. Living in huts and cottages, and surrounded by lush green pastures grasslands, the natives did survive on just the basics.

Every cottage in this village had a tale to tell.

A beautiful village. The houses and the setting that were made evoke the true spirit of ancient times. There is a map on the tickets and each box is marked, which is very useful because even though it is a smaller setting, it is easy to get lost. Each house nicely explains where she came from and what she served for and to whom she belonged. The houses are authentic, not built but only transferred from the original location. Recommendations to all, the ticket is 150 din per person.

During our daily trip, we also visited the open-air museum (Ethno Village) called Staro Selo, established in 1979. It is located next to the much older church, dedicated to Saints Peter and Paul the Apostles.

The village has about forty old, traditional houses, mostly log buildings. They were salvaged around this mountainous region, brought to this site and rebuilt with their original furniture and household items. For most of them, the name of the original owner, the date of the construction and the original location of the building is documented.

Our guide explained to us in detail how these houses were built on a steep slope, where did they put the fireplace and how did they use some of the household items which look rather strange nowadays.

Some of the houses have special thin roof tiles, made of slate rock, locally called škriljac.

There are very interesting extensions of some houses which were used to store and preserve fruit and vegetables, mostly with smoke.

There is also a reconstructed old village school. One of the building serves as an exhibition gallery for local artists and other cultural events can also be held there. The site is also a favourite spot for the motion picture industry.

A number of old houses were adapted to accommodate lodging for tourists. In one of those adapted houses, there is a little restaurant serving local specialities.

Sirogojno is well maintained and the tickets were 300 RSD for both of us, which is around 2.5E, bt it is nothing special. Not big, nothing interesting.

Sirogojno is an old village, where you can see a lot of charming wooden traditional houses in an open-air museum. The town is located near Zlatibor, a known sky town in Western Serbia. In this town, you can see and enter in some of the houses and see traditional dresses and objects. Very interesting place to learn about the historical Serbian life. Also, in this museum, there is a traditional restaurant, where you can taste a selection of local dishes. Very good.

Sirogojno, on Mount Zlatibor, Serbia is a quaint open-air museum, like an ethno village. We visited in December so it was covered in snow. There is a little restaurant serving pies and strong hot coffee. Worth a visit. You can also find food preserves and there are a few stalls selling a range of sheep wool garments.
