'''Uzice''' is a city in [[Serbia]].
It has an attractive setting, in a limestone gorge, with red-roofed houses spreading up the hillsides. However, the central area is largely concrete ( 1960s?) and quite run down. The high number of Yugos on the roads gives the impression that there isn't much money around.
Best way to get in is by
Bus from Belgrade or by Train. There are also other buses from other cities . The Uzice-Ponikve airport is under repairs and will soon have scheduled flights from Belgrade, 2007 or 2008.
Train from Belgrade only 826 Dinars including reservation (€8.26) (2010)
Train and bus stations are adjacent, south of the river, just a few minutes walk to the centre. There is a useful map (ariel view) of the town at the train station, from which you can find your way to the Tourist Information Office (closes at 4pm).
Best way to get around is walking but if you want travel around the best way is a taxi.
The Best thing to do is catch from the Bus depot and head to old ruins of an old castle just out of town( stari grad). There is also Zlatibor mountains which has great Ski resorts which are very active during the winter season (December). Also drive about 1 hour and visit a small village called Mokra Gora which has a tourist train line. Also the St George Serbian Orthodox church in Uzice is a must.
see the sights of Uzice. Also take a day trip out and see the lovely mountains around Uzice. And if you are between he ages of 13 to 99 you can also got to techno clubs and clubs, there are many and if you don't know where there is a good one just ask around or ask a taxi driver
* House, Uzice is one of the most laid back and easy going towns in whole of Europe ( well at least i think)
* A ticket to somewhere else! (eg [[Višegrad]], [[Zlatibor]])
The best thing to eat
is Burek, pastry with meat and cheese that can be bought from vendors all over town.
Another speciality is Komplet Lepinjia, a pita with cheese, egg and sauce.
Western Serbia is also well-known for
kaymak, a thick creamy cheese with a rich taste .
Beer types vary from smaller Serbian beers to the big American brands. The best thing to drink is rakia, a strong fruit brandy that is regarded as Serbia's national drink.
The first option is the Hotel Zlatibor, a brutalist concrete tower right in the centre of town. It was built in the early 1960s. The interior is quite dim and feels a little haunted. One night will cost between 20-25 euros.
The second is Eco Hostel Republik, a new modern hostel with with shared and private rooms. It's located on Zele Durica 34 just five minutes away from the centre of the town. It has a
small garden, a common room and a terrace. They can also arrange trips for you around the city and to the surrounding countryside. Cost is about 10 euro. Recommended. [http://www.republik.rs "Eko Hostel Republic" Website]
