==Get in==
===By bus===
Best way to get in is by bus from Belgrade. There are also other buses from other cities.
Buses run to and from most major cities out of Uzice.
===By train===
A train from Belgrade only 826 Dinars including reservation (€8.26) (2010). However, due to the less-than-efficient state of the railways, it is recommended that you take a bus.
The 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).
 
 
==By air==
The local airport Uzice-Ponikve airport is for very small airplanes, with flights to Nis and Belgrade.
==Get around==
==See==
WITHIN THE CITY
'''The Old Town''' (Fortress and Ruins) lie on a rocky cliff that separates the river bed of the Djetinja from where it flows out of the gorge into the valley. The fortification was built on a high cliff, and it is difficult to access because the Djetinja River surrounds it on all three sides. It can be accessed by bus or by foot.
'''The Hydroelectric Power Plant''' is located on the Djetinja River, at the bottom of the Užice Old Town. It was made in 1900 and is one of the symbols of the town of Užice. It was the first electrical plant in Serbia made according to Tesla’s principles of an alternating current.
 
 
OUTSIDE THE CITY (day trips)
 
'''Mokra Gora''' is a quaint village located in the picturesque area on the border of Tara National Park. You can ride on the Sargan Eight railway, a narrow gauge railroad (heritage railroad) that connects from Mokra Gora to the nearby Sargan station. It is very scenic and costs only 600 dinar.
 
'''Tara National Park''' is mountainous nature preserve with a great diversity of flora and fauna. You can check out the "meaders" from a lookout point, go hiking on the many trails, or watch for the griffons or many other birds. The air is also very fresh.
 
'''Zlatibor''' is well-known for its beautiful mountains, its clean air and its excellent ski slopes during the winter. Even today it is still used as a respiratory spa because of its fresh air. In the summer, there are many walking paths and even a new bobsled ride.
 
'''Visegrad''' is a small city just across the border in Bosnia. The bridge in Visegrad was immortalized by Nobel Prize-winning author Ivo Andric in his book “Bridge over Drina,” and it is the main tourist attraction in this small Bosnian town. Rising above the emerald green waters of the Drina River, the bridge has eleven stone arches and can be seen from below on a tourist boat.
 
'''Stopica Cave''' is famous river cave known for its "bigren" tubs. There is also a waterfall close by known as The Source of Life.
 
'''Studenica Monastery''' is perhaps the best monastery in all of Serbia. It has very well-preserved frescoes and impressive architecture, and is surrounded by nature. It was built in 1190 and is an important monument to Serbian heritage. There is also a dormitory where you can stay.
 
'''Rujno Monastery''' is located in the village of Vrutci on the banks of the lake that supplies water for Uzice. Serbia’s first book was printed in this monastery. The Rujno monastery can be reached by going from Uzice to Biosci and, a few kilometers before the village, turning into the village of Vrutci. After a few hundred meters in Vrutci, go to the right of Rujno Monastery. All turns are marked.
