I must be honest and say that until now I have not had the opportunity to visit the Uvac river and its canyon. For this reason, I will use Sofiaadventure's blog, where this wonderful place in Serbia is best described.

The meander in the Uvac River, located in the Uvac Special Nature Reserve, is my nominee for the prettiest (and most Instagrammable) place in Serbia, but this great aerial shot does not require a drone. There are twelve lookout points above the gorge, so you can get great photography here without spending thousands of dollars on specialized equipment.
