[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
Interior of one of the carriages of "Šargan eight" train, made in the 1930.

Through the valley between the slopes of three Serbian mountain beauties: Tara, Zlatibor and Šargan, one of the most beautiful railway routes of the world used to run until 1974. On a narrow-gauge line, connecting Belgrade with Sarajevo and Dubrovnik, the popular “Ćira” train used to cruise. For half a century this line used to link the surrounding villages with the world. The building of the line began in 1921 and the first train started four years later, driving its way through rocky gorges and steep cuttings of Šargan.

The 300 m difference in altitude from Mokra Gora to Šargan at the distance of 3,5 km was resolved wisely by designers and constructors in a unique and the only possible way: by an extraordinary loop in the shape of a number eight – the popular “Šargan Eight”. The Eight was about 13,5 km long, including 22 tunnels, about ten bridges and viaducts, making one third of the total line length. For a passenger it was impossible to find out which way the train had passed and which way it was to move further.
