Two hundred kilometers southwest of Serbia's capital, Belgrade, on Mokra Gora mountain only a few miles from the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina is a bustling little mountain town called Drvengrad. It means “timber town”, which is correct, for the entire town is made of wood obtained from the area’s numerous conifer trees. Even the streets and main square are paved with wooden tiles.

Drvengrad has a church, a library, a cinema, a couple of restaurants and shops, but it’s not a real town. Drvengrad was built by the enigmatic filmmaker Emir Kusturica in 2004 for his film Life is a Miracle.
