Banjica Park and Moravica beaches
It is located in the wider city centre, on the banks of the river Moravica, and is about 500 m away from the marble promenade. The park is wonderfully designed, with numerous benches, decorated with flowers and greenery. There is an outdoor gym as well as running tracks (made of tartan) within the park.
The bath ‘Banjica’, which is located in the park and has thermo-mineral water, with a temperature of up to 28°C, is used in the treatment of various neurological diseases. The restaurant ‘Coka’ on the river bank is also located in the park.
Below the restaurant is the sandy beach ‘Župan’, which is perfectly designed, with a shoal for children. The part of the beach, which is located in a gorge between two rocks, where the depth is about 4 m, is suitable for diving. Upstream from ‘Zupan’ is the beach ‘Tesnac’. In that part, Moravica is the narrowest in its course, but it is very attractive for bathers. Other popular beaches include ‘Six tubs’, ‘Three tubs’ and ‘Gentleman’. The first two beaches were named after the appearance of the rocks between which the river flows, since they took the form of barrels or tubs due to river erosion. These beaches are also suitable for diving, and are very popular during the summer.
