Vucje, Serbia

Vucjanka River

Popular river that runs through the remote Serbian municipality of Leskovac. 

The most beautiful tourist destination in the Serbian municipality of Leskovac, the town of Vucje is perhaps best known for its Kukavica mountain and the Vucjanka river that originates on it. The population of the town, which is also known for the nearby Zelen-grad Fortress, is only home to about 3,000 people.

Also known as the Wolf river, Vucjanke runs along a series of paths and hiking routes. Built 7 km from the river, the Vucjanke resort is the most-visited resort in the entire valley. It’s home to indoor sports courts and other equipment that draw athletes from the area as well as more traditional tourists.
