Hotel Lucani Guca

Hotel Lucani, Guca

Hotel Lucani Guca in Lučani is new one hotel and much smaller than hotel “Zlatna truba.” Hotel has 2 apartments, 10 single rooms, and 14 double rooms. Other facilities are Olympic pool, and many sport playgrounds. Hotel is ideal for organization of seminars, and sport tourism.
The village of Gucha in the Dragačevo district, peaceful and colorful part of western Serbia, has gained world fame owing to its Assembly of Trumpet Players, the largest trumpet event on the planet.
The love of the people of Dragačevo for music, especially for the trumpet, began in the rule of Prince Miloš Obrenović, who ordered the formation of the first military band in 1831.
From then until now the trumpet has reigned here uninterrupted while woodwind instruments, in keeping with the customs, warm the soul of its population. The sound of the trumpet traditionally accompanies every major event in Serbia’s rural and small-town life: births, baptisms, weddings, Slav {family patron saint day}, farewell parties for those joining military service, state and church festivals, harvesting, reaping, and also departing this world. Appropriate music is played on these occasions, thus preserving the spirit of the existing tradition.
The music is very diverse: from indigenous melodies, via kolo {a fast-rhythm chain dance}, marches and characteristic southern Serbia čoček dances, all the way to tunes that have emerged more recently, but always taking care to honor old harmonies. This music has won over the hearts of not only the local population, but has also warmed the hearts of outsiders and foreigners. In the several days of the Gucha festival, hardly anyone can resist giving themselves to the adrenalin-rushing rhythms and melodies that simply force one to jump to ones feet and dance.
We organize private accommodation in our hotel with one meal per day per person for Guča Trumpet Festival. For all our guests we make transfer from Belgrade airport to Guča, or from city Čačak to Guča.
