Hotel Zlatna Truba, Guca

Hotel Zlatna Truba, Guca has 3 stars and 120 beds. Also, hotel has restaurant, with Serbian and Dragacev`s specialties. This authentic etho festival of wind instrument orchestras is favorite for all listeners. It was Emir Kusturica who was, in his film ”Underground” the first to make the Serbian wind instruments’ players famous by playing the music of Goran Bregovic. Now the ethno-sound of trumpets can be heard more and more in the night clubs of the Europe’s largest cities.

The village of Guca in the Dragacevo 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 Dragacevo for music, especially for the trumpet, began in the rule of Prince Milos Obrenovic, 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 “cocek” 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 Guca 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.
