Uzice

Uzice is a city in Serbia.

It has an attractive setting, in a limestone gorge, with red-roofed houses spreading up the hillsides. However, the central area is largely concrete (1960s?) and quite run down. The high number of Yugos on the roads gives the impression that there isn't much money around.
