Pogled sa terase na Sokobanju i Rtanj
Serbia

Sokobanja is located in East Serbia, 234 km southwest from Belgrade on the slopes of Mount Ozren (1,074 m).


Therapeutic powers of thermal springs in Sokobanja were known as far back as the time of Romans. The first official record of Sokobanja dates back to the rule of Stefan Nemanja (XV century). Today it is one of the most popular spas and it boasts the title of the first ecological municipality in Serbia.

Getting there:
* by road, exiting from international highway E-5 Belgrade-Niš-Athens at Aleksinac
* by railway – Aleksinac station on Belgrade–Niš–Athens railway.

There are several natural springs in the vicinity. Water for the resort itself is supplied from the natural spring the flow rate of which is 17 litres/second even at times of scorching droughts. Walking up the hiking path no more than several hundred meters will lead you to the most significant cultural and historical monument - Soko grad (Falcon Fort). Built during Justinian’s rule (I-IV century) chiefly as defense against the Avars, it served in medieval Serbia as defense against the Turks until 1413 when it was completely destroyed.

Located on a camp site and intersection of hiking paths, NBS holiday resort “Lepterija” is 1,500 m far from the centre of Sokobanja. Apartmani u Sokobanji are located all over the city

The height of 600 m above sea-level, the soothing effect of moderate continental climate, pleasant atmosphere pressure and air currents permeated with sweet ozone scent make this place the right choice for spending your holidays.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
