Jastrebac mountain is one of the most forested mountains in this part of Europe, but also one of the oldest mountains in Serbia. According to the legend, he owes his dense forest as well as his name, to the hawk. He with the twigs he collected for the nest, also brought the seeds he sowed along the way. They grew plants, grass and trees that still adorn its slopes.

Guests will be greeted by two peaks (Đulica and Pogled) that are sunny all year round. One of the few mountains in Serbia where you can see large forests of white birch – a species characterized by beautiful, snow-white trees. In order to prevent the extinction of the species that has become a trademark of this mountain, the state of Serbia has protected them by law! But, you can ride around them… Try not to hit: European deer, wild boar, rabbits, badgers, martens and other animals.

Near Jastrebac is the town of Krusevac – the capital of medieval Serbia. The city where the most important decisions were made in the 13th century, to this day preserves the most important buildings from that time. The archeological park Lazarev grad, with the remains of a medieval fortress and the church Lazarica, built in honor of the firstborn son of Prince Lazar, are the best preserved monuments in this area.
