Potpećka Cave is located in the village of Potpeć, near Zlakusa, 14km away from Užice, in the north of Drežnička Gradina (931m above sea level). The cave entrance is a monumental work of nature. Its gigantic portal resembling a horseshoe is 50m high, 12m wide at its bottom and 22m at its top, and represents the highest cave entrance in Serbia. The 555m inside the cave have been explored and can be seen by visitors. The entry path counts over 700 steps. The cave was created by water which sinks in Drežnička Gradina and flows through 4-5km long underground canals. This water flows out from the cave making the river Petnica.
Village Zlakusa is known for its traditional pottery. The pottery making craft has been passed on to younger generations for three centuries. The village, once populated by poor potters, is today a major centre of Serbian rural tourism and the manufacturing centre of Serbian-style Zepter cookware and European pottery. The International Symposium of Art Ceramics, held each summer for almost two decades, brings a new life to the pottery making tradition.
