Rustic Milenovic Villa Rajačke Pimnice – Rajac Wineries accommodation

Rustic Milenovic Villa Rajačke Pimnice – Rajac Wineries accommodation

Rajac is tiny old village in East Serbia famous for extraordinary wines, located on the /pretty old, in reconstruction/ road between Zaječar and Negotin. Rajac is the wine village some 30 km away from Zaječar, 37 from Bor and 25 km away from Negotin. To reach the tiny and remote Rajac wine village and the widely known Rajac Wineries, visitors should be patient and careful to take the simplest and most recommended road from Negotin, from where it is about half an hour of drive through the following villages : Kobišnica, Veljkovo and by Rogljevo village to the left, to reach Rajac after few km. Another road from Zaječar to Rajac village is 43 km long and quite picturesque, but pretty curvy and dirty, with lot of wholes. It passes through the villages of Veliki Izvor, Halovo, Mali Jasenovac, Šipikovo and Braćevac. There is the third road to reach the Rajac Wineries, via Brusnik and Tamnič village, but very bad one, which we do not recommend.

More and more tourists from Serbia and abroad visit Rajac village or spend their holidays here thanks to its renown Rajac Wineries and its exquisite wines, some 2 km above the village. Some locals and guests some say the wines have miracle powers and medical features – of course, when used in normal quantities…. Red and white wines kept in barrels of stone wine cellars of Rajac Wineries feature unique taste, smell and colors. On elevation above the Rajac village /2 km/, with well known wine cellars of Rajac Wineries, there is the unique old cemetery, with tomb stones made of sandstone, that represent themselves special attraction, thanks to their uniquely beautiful engravings and ancientness….
