Locatie en vrije tijd
The camp is located in the village of Turica, Municipality of Lucani, Western Serbia. The place is located in a mountainous area of the country with beautiful green landscape. During the camp we will explore the vivid nature and interesting historical heritage of the village and nearby small town Guca, famous for its trumpet festival. During the camp we will organise the visit to the Municipality of Lucani, last year’s camp place in the village of Tijanje and one field trip to explore the nearby city of Cacak and its surrounding.
Camp is located in rural area. Nearby village of Guca is providing limited opportunity for urban activities (going out for a drink, shopping, etc). The organiser will make it possible for volunteers to go to nearby town of Guca when needed and one trip to closest city of Cacak will be organized. The internet access is also limited in the rural areas and the best option is for participants to by pre-paid sim card with internet promotion on arrival (3-5 EUR). The organised will contact the participants prior to arrival in order to arrange transport from closest cities given that village bus is operating only once a day in summer period.
