Baranica is a natural bathing spot, a favorite of the local population. It is located on the right bank of Trgoviški Timok, in the gorge of the river itself, 5 km from the city. It is located near the road Knjaževac – Pirot, so it is a frequent stop for travelers who want to take a break. Baranica is extremely attractive for fishermen and “creative” swimmers who would like to try their hand at water games.
Baranica beach is the most visited during the holidays, in spring and summer.
Baranica is also known as the Paleolithic cell. The larger okapina on Bаrаnica is raised high above the river, located on the right side of Trgoviški Timok, about 100 m above the river. The cave has two entrances, one in the east and the other on the south side. The base of this cave town is largely divided and consists of three rooms: a semicircular vestibule from which it is crossed north and there are corridors leading to a small room and a larger room. During the arheological research, from the museum of Knjаževаc and the Philosophical Faculty from Belgrade, flint stones were recorded in the cultural layers of the cave as well as a modern bony material. The found flint alatkes belong to the Young Leopardite cultural complex.
