|Mokra Gora, meaning the Wet Mountain in English, is a village in Serbia on the northern slopes of mountain Zlatibor, that is turning into a very popular tourist center due to its unique attractions.|
Mokra Gora has become popular after a reconstruction of an old regional railway called Šargan Eight which is unique in the world due to its lane that, viewed from the sky, looks like number 8.
A famous Serbian film director Emir Kusturica has also made contibution to development of tourism in Mokra Gora, by building an ethno village Drvengrad. He received the Philippe Rotthier European Architecture Award by the Brussels Foundation for Architecture for this project.
