Goč mountain – Vrnjačka Banja


Goč mountain, whose highest peak is 1124 m high, is located 200 km from Belgrade and 31 km from Kraljevo in the northern part of the Kopaonik mountain range. Goč can be accessed from many sides, but the two main roads run from Kraljevo to the Dobre Vode peak via Kamenica and from Vrnjačka Banja to Stanišinci. Goč is covered in a beech and fir forest which is also home to the Goč pines, sessile oaks, fine deciduous species and exotic coniferous species. The exuberant forests and the glades of Goč with their pristine nature and fresh air have a beneficial effect on people suffering from anemia and boost the metabolism and the nervous system. Goč is rich in wild strawberries and has a diverse range of medicinal herbs. The rich flora is affirmed by the presence of the beekeepers that set up their beehives on the pastures. In Gvozdac there is an artificial lake that fits perfectly into the natural surroundings. In the Dobre Vode tourist resort, next to a hotel of the same name, there are two 300m ski tracks for beginners and children, with two ski-lifts. About 150 m from the hotel there are a 1150 m-long ski-lift and a 1400 m-long ski track. The upper part of the track, whose hill climbs are 350 m, is gently inclined thus suitable for beginners, whereas the lower part is somewhat steeper and used by recreational skiers. There are also five marked trails for cross-country skiing, of different lengths and inclines, as well as a 30 m-jump ideal for training and practice in ski jumping. Guests who visit Goč in wintertime can hire ski equipment and a there is also a school of skiing organized during the winter period.



Next to the Beli Izvor holiday resort located on the Vrnjačka Banja side of the mountain, there are courts for small sports and hiking and jogging tracks, and during the winter seasons there are two 500 m-long ski tracks perfect for making first steps on the snow. The ski-lift capacity is 1200 skiers per hour and there is also an optional nighttime skiing. In addition to the skiing facilities, Goč also provides conditions for the preparation of athletes (with its basketball, volleyball, handball and tennis courts), for organizing outdoor classes and sports camps, for hiking, mountain tracking, paragliding, fishing and hunting. Goč is also renowned for its cultural and historical landmarks the most interesting of which is the Roman-era cemetery which is the burial place of the Saxon miners who extracted and smelted iron here at the time of the Nemanjić dynasty.
