Tourists say Loznica has a unique allure, while its residents consider their city to be always one step ahead. We recommend taking a stroll on the streets of the famous people from Loznica: Vuk Stefanović Karadzić, Jovan Cvijić and Miodrag Mića Popović. Pay a visit to Banja Koviljača, Banja Badanja, Monasteries Tronoša and Čokešina, places like village Tršić, Gučevo Mountain and the River Drina, Žića‘s Beach and Branjevo, the sites which local people visit in their free time especially on weekends and holidays.

LilaLo is a music and performance festival dedicated to the folk tradition authentic to Loznica and Podrinje region with the aim of affirming the creative potentials of young people. The idea for the festival originates from the desire to make a bridge between tradition and contemporary art to preserve cultural heritage for generations to come. Lila (burning bark) symbolically illuminates future and arouses optimism.

In 2020, Tourism Organization of the City of Loznica installed tourist signalization for better visibility of touristic sights in the city which was supported within the Project: “Diversification of economic activities in rural areas of Southeast Europe: value chain investment support and capacity building” implemented by SWG RRD in partnership with GIZ.
