Mysteries of Zarožje


From the viewpoint of Mrka Stena, there is a view of the western slopes of Povlen and you can see the famous village of Zarožje. The place of an even more famous mill owned by Sava Savanović, the most famous Serbian vampire. He is immortalized in the short story "After Ninety Years" by Milovan Glišić  that was published in 1880, some 17 years before the famous novel "Dracula" by Bram Stoker. This story served as the inspiration for the film "Butterfly", which is considered one of the best Serbian horror films, made in 1973. Immediately above the renovated Sava’s mill, there are unusually sharp peaks of the mountain, called "Roge" (Horns), after which the village and the nearby river got their name. Be sure to visit the unusually beautiful Zarožje.
 

Misterije Zarožja

 

Sa vidikovca Mrke stene prostire se pogled na zapadne obronke planine i nazire čuveno selo Zarožje, mesto još čuvenije vodenice u vlasništvu Save Savanovića, najpoznatijeg srpskog vampira. On je ovekovečen u kratkoj priči ”Posle devedeset godina” Milovana Glišića iz 1880. godine, što je čak 17 godina pre poznatog dela ”Drakula” Brama Stokera. Njegovo delo je poslužilo kao inspiracija za film ”Leptirica”, koja se smatra jednim od najboljih srpskih horor filmova, snimljenim 1973. godine. Odmah iznad obnovljene Savine vodenice nalaze se neobično oštri vrhovi planine, zvane ”Roge” po kojima je selo i obližnja reka dobila ime. Obavezno posetite nesvakidašnje lepo Zarožje.
