Ethno village Stanisici is perfect for anyone and can be visited anytime. With that being said, how much do you actually like to travel? Do you need comfort and relaxing, or sightseeing and discovering new places? I love to travel so much that I do not mind about anything except seeing and enjoying new places. For a long time I wanted to visit this magical place. One sunny November, my friend surprised me and took me on a picnic in Ethno village Stanisici, telling me the history of this place..
It was founded in 2003, thanks to Boris Stanišić. He visited Serbian villages in Bosnia and Herzegovina and collected ideas and things that represent life on Balkan in middle ages. Meanwhile, he gets the inspiration and motivation to build this magical place, which will forever save the old and forgotten way of life which was regular in 19th century.
How to get to it?
Ethno village is located in Bosnia, at the exit from Bijeljina city. Agencies from a lot of Balkan cities are organizing tours to this place. The prices for a one day trip are from 10 to 30 euros, depending on the agency and the package deal. Second way is to just go with a regular bus to Bijeljina. However he best way is if you go by car, also fuel in Bosnia is even cheaper than in Serbia. From Belgrade, this place is 115 to 130 km away, depending on the road you choose. Anyways you can get there within 2 hours.
