Drvengrad is a film ethno-village in Mokra Gora. It is situated between Zlatibor and Tara and was erected on Mecavnik hill by the film director Emir Kusturica.

Mecavnik rises above the village of Mokra Gora and is on the same altitude as the old railway station Jatare of the old narrow-gauge railway “Sargan Eight”.

Drvengrad is an ethno village built in urban style. There is the entrance gate on one of its ends and on the other a small wooden church built in Russian style and dedicated to St. Sava. In the center there is a square with the ground made of wood and surrounded by authentic log cabins transported from regions in Serbia and Bosnia.

Drvengrad has a picture gallery, a library, the cinema “Underground”, a pastry and sweets shop where home-made cakes and natural juices are served, a national restaurant and a souvenir shop.

The expert jury of Brussels Foundation for Architecture “Philip Rotie” proclaimed Drvengrad the best European architectonic achievement in the last three years.

Kusturica says about Drvengrad: “I have made up a town that looks as if people have always lived there.”
