Serbia

Serbia, a buzzy and boisterous country, is compact enough for visitors to sample both Belgrade’s urban hedonism and the gentler pace of the smaller towns or national parks within a few days—and it’s one of Europe’s most affordable destinations. Explore the nightlife and café culture of Serbia’s hectic, hedonistic capital, Belgrade. Serbia’s second city, Novi Sad, is worth visiting too, thanks to its relaxing old town and dramatic citadel. While there, enjoy Exit Festival, a premier European music festival. The Studenica Monastery, a World Heritage Site, is a must-see. As the biggest and best of Serbia’s Orthodox monasteries, complete with two white marble churches (the Church of the King and the Church of the Virgin), Studenica reflects the country’s medieval boom time. The remains of the first Serbian kings lie in rest here, and inside the churches are breathtaking Byzantine paintings. Serbia’s countryside is beautiful and varied. In the summer, walk in the Fruška Gora National Park. In the winter, hit the ski slopes with Balkan daredevils at Kopaonik National Park. The UNESCO list of internationally significant wetlands includes nine Serbian sites. We invite you to visit Serbia’s natural preserves, national parks, natural monuments, protected habitats for threatened plant and animal species, and areas of outstanding beauty and natural parks. Have the time of your life in Serbia.

A place where you can pay a visit if you are interested on science and technology you should visit the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts. ‘Belgrade’ literally translates as ‘White City’, but Serbia’s colorful capital is great.

It is located at the confluence of the Raska and Ibar Rivers and was named after the river and the region it inhabits. It is considered to be the most urban town of its period. Although it has a short urban history, archeological findings show the existence of a settlement where Raska now lies long before the present-day town was established. There aremany archeological sites nearby, including Zajčaka and the village of Rvati. They have not been fully explored so you can enjoy hunting on your own.

Stari Ras is different from the other cities. It’s a mediaeval town, 11km west of Novi Pazar, standing on Gradina Hill. It was founded during John Il Komnenos’reign (1118-1143).
