El Paso City - the most important information
El Paso City is a place that people do not expect to see on Zlatibor, but it always pleasantly surprises them. Because it lies on the unique idea of merging different cultures, this theme park has created an opportunity to get you introduced to the types of settlements that are located in two different parts of the world at the same time.
About El Paso City Park
This place is named after an American city located on the border between the USA and Mexico, whose name means crossing. Following the example of that city, the park on Zlatibor is located on a river that divides it into two parts. On one side is a cowboy town and an Indian village, and on the other side, there is a Zlatibor hamlet. All details of the park are designed in the style of these settlements from the 19th century. It is quite amazing to see these faithful replicas that are designed to the smallest details - from the log cabins and tents to caravans and weapons. The best thing about El Paso City is the varied offer of accommodation, so you can enjoy this place and stay here for several days.
What to see
