The gorgeous Park of Bukovička Banja is famous for its open-air sculpture gallery. Various sculptors' works of art, made of Vencac marble (one of the best in the world), are placed in this park. The sculptures were created in the past three decades, during the traditional manifestation "The Marble and Sounds" (Mermer i zvuci).
