Petnica cave
Petnička pećina (Cave of Petnica) is situated near Petnica, the most visited excursion destination in the area of Valjevo, five kilometres away from the city. The Cave of Petnica contains numerous archaeological finds from the Prehistoric Period, as well as fauna remains from the Ice Age.
 
Petnička pećina lies 1 km away from the village of Petnica. In the cave and its surroundings, the earliest evidence of human life in West Serbia was found. The exploring of these archaeological sites began in the 20th century, by Serbian botanist Josif Pančić and Serbian geographer Jovan Cvijić.
 
Archaeological and anthropological research from 1969 confirmed that the archaeological site, which is situated in front of the entrance into the Cave of Petnica, is the first complete Neolithic habitat in Serbia (6,000 years old). Besides the archaeological, it also has a significant speleological and paleontological value. Petnica has an accumulation lake, which can be used for fishing, as well. There is a sports and recreational facility, with three open air swimming pools. The village is also famous for its Science centre for young researchers.
