Public transport (bus)
from Beograd – 1h40min

Exiting the central train station go to the left to the red bus station BAS (Beogradska Autobuska Stanica) and there buy a ticket to Baraka (“Jednu kartu za Baraku, molim”). Go with your ticket to enter the bus station and choose your bus halt according to the nr. on the ticket. It also mentions time and tour operator (mostly Euro Trans-tours). The Peron number shows, from where the bus is exactly leaving.

The trip takes about 1h20min and the bus will either go to Koceljeva or to Šabac, both over Obrenovac. (There is a bus going to Šabac over the highway northbound the Sava river but it doesn’t stop in Barake, so don’t take it!) After Obrenovac you will pass the power plant (it’s on your left hand) – then it is still 20 minutes drive. After the village Debrc, it is ca 5 min. Don’t get out here! There is a sing saying Jazovnik, but that is not our village. There is also a petrol station, but it is small and not open When you see a huge white 24h petrol station ‘Slap’ on your right-hand side you will see the direction mark (Jalovik) pointing to the left. Go to the front and make sure they put you out at the bus stop. It’s on a T-split. There is the MM-Market, the Domovina restaurant, a building material company called Drvoimpex, across the road another restaurant Laguna, and an expensive villa. Walk from there a bit back into the direction you came from and follow the sign ‘Jalovik’ to the right. After ca. 1,5 km at the first house on the right-hand side turn the left on a dusty road of ca 120 m and you run into our gates.
from Beograd
Go along the central train station in the direction of the main post office and follow this road straight ahead. The E760 will go under the highway and along the World Trade Centre and goes after several traffic lights left, but stay straight on what becomes the Obrenovacki put, M19. Follow it till Obrenovac and follow there the signs to Šabac. At the 1st set of traffic lights in Obrenovac turn right (you will cross 2-speed ramps), at the 2nd set turn left, the 3rd straight ahead and the 4th right to come back to M19.
When you pass the power plant (it is on your left hand) it is still 20 minutes drive. After the village Debrc it is ca 5 min. When you see a huge white 24h petrol station on you right hand side you will see the direction mark Jalovik pointing to the left. At this T-split left is a big stone with engraved cyrillic alphabet. Turn left and follow for ca. 1,5 km until the first house on the right and slow down to turn left onto a dusty road of ca 120 m and you are there.
from Šabac
Looking towards the main bus station go left and turn right at the second set of traffic lights in the direction of Obrenovac. Follow the road until the transit road where you go left. This is the M19. After ca. 15 km a direction sign shows ‘Jalovik’ to the right. At this T-split is at the right side stone with an engraved Cyrillic alphabet. Follow this road for ca. 1,5 km until the first house on the right-hand side and slow down to turn left onto a dusty road of ca 120m and you are there.
