Warm, welcoming and a hell of a lot of fun – everything you never heard about Serbia (Србија) is true. Serbia is a country located in the heart of the Balkan Peninsula, with a long history and a striking culture. Serbia has a fascinating capital city, Belgrade that boasts a rich cultural life, with excellent restaurants and nightlife; quiet, rural market towns that still cling to traditional ways; and a countryside that is characterized by lush hills and forested mountains, with age-old monasteries hidden in remote valleys. The hospitable and joyful dispositions of the Serbian people make this a destination not to miss. Belgrade, the capital of Serbia is one of the world’s wildest party destinations, the heart of the city is filled with interesting bookshops, world-class restaurants, eclectic galleries and dazzling architecture, and the streets always seem to be filled with people. The northern town of Novi Sad hosts the rocking EXIT festival is one of the most diverse and most famous music festivals in Europe. With five large national parks, more than 60 nature reserves, 15 nature parks, four mountain ranges, half a dozen raftable rivers, countless canyons and 280 natural monuments, it’s easy to go wild in Serbia. Mountain Zlatibor offers milder slopes and extensive cross-country trails. If your idea of a winter workout tends more towards elbow-bending, après-ski in Serbia is a hale and hearty affair… and nothing warms the bones better than rakija. At nearby Mokra Gora, the small Iver ski and snowboard centre is attached to the eccentric, endearing wooden village of Drvengrad, built entirely by award-winning Serbian director Emir Kusturica for his film Life is a Miracle. Serbian ethno villages are true national treasures. To a curious eye, they will reveal the well-preserved Serbian architecture, cuisine, tradition and customs, while old tales, myths and legends will inspire and satisfy any adventure-hungry ear. Provided you have armed yourself with local wisdom and useful tips, you will definitely enjoy a variety of things to do and places to see in Serbia.
