Sijarinska Banja - spa resort & hotels
Sijarinska Spa is in the south of Serbia. It is 330 km away from Belgrade, 90 km away from Nis and 50 km away from Leskovac. It is located on the banks of the Jablanica river, at the foot of Mount Goljak, at 520 m above sea level. It is surrounded by hills with thick oak and beech woods, covering some 50 square kilometres of the surrounding area, therefore the spa is protected from winds, and no documented apparition of fog was ever made.

In the spa there is a hot water geyser whose water column reaches the height of 8 metres, and a periodical geyser which erupts every ten minutes – these two geysers are considered as unique in Europe.
