Tour description

Malo poznata javnosti, Pisana stena u selu Žlijeb na obroncima Tare, pominje se u arheološkim zapisima još u 19. vijeku. Opsežnija istraživanja nikada nisu organizovana, pa još nije razjašnjeno kom periodu pripada. Narod tog kraja Pisanu stenu vezuje za nastanak reke Vrelo, na drugoj strani planine, u Perućcu. Vrelo važi za najkraću srpsku reku, dugu samo 365 metara, zbog čega je zovu i Godina. Nastaje u podnožju Tare, vodopadom se stropoštava u Drinu, na njoj su bile i vodenice – a i prva hidrocentrala u Perućcu, kao i strugare i ribnjaci.
On the other side of Tara, in the Žlijeb village, beneath a cliff on which there are centuries-old enrolled symbols and signs the legend about this river starts.

Here, near Visegrad, under one of the heights of Tara, still lives the legend of the Perućac River.
According to the locals, Perućac had spring under the sign and Queen Jerina the Cursed closed the opening. When the water had been trapped, she found her way out and threw out the Perućac in Bajina Bašta, on the other side of Tara. And now that river is called Vrelo.
