Welcome to Serbia!

A small country rich in people with big hearts and a sense of humor. With a turbulent history and diverse nature. With good food, quality wines, and excellent entertainment. Serbia – a crossroads of roads, cultures, and nations.

Where is Serbia?

Serbia is located at the crossroads of ancient trade and military routes, from north to south (Morava-Vardar corridor) and from west to east (Đerdap and Sićevo gorges on one side and the Ibar Valley on the other). Historically, the territory of present-day Serbia is home to the oldest human settlement in Europe, Lepenski Vir. Archaeological sites and museums throughout Serbia confirm numerous Neolithic settlements, crucial for the development of the European continent and civilization (such as the Vinča and Starčevo cultures).

Serbia through the centuries.

The mighty Celts founded Singidunum, today’s capital of Serbia – Belgrade, at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers. The Romans built roads (Via Militaris), military camps (Viminacium), baths (Vrnjačka Banja), imperial palaces (Sirmium), and planted the first vineyards (Fruška Gora vineyards) here. A total of 17 Roman emperors were born here, the highest number outside the territory of present-day Italy. The Byzantine Empire left an indelible mark on Serbia in Orthodoxy, architecture, and literacy.

The Venetian Republic, through Dubrovnik, spread its influence through architecture, science, and art. Medieval Nemanjić Serbia bequeathed the first Serbian Kingdom, the canonical Serbian Orthodox Church, the legacy of Saint Sava, monasteries, cities, fortresses, and the oldest written books (Mirosavljevo Gospel, Dušan’s Code). The Ottoman Turks left their mark in Islam (religion, culture, art, literature), architecture (mosques, madrasas, bazaars, hammams, fortresses), and most significantly in gastronomy (burek, sarma, baklava, ćevapi).

The Habsburg Monarchy, during the 17th and 18th centuries in present-day Vojvodina, built organized settlements, fortresses, churches, and monasteries. They dug canals, drained the land, and settled people. In addition to Hungarian and Serbian natives, Germans, Romanians, Bulgarians, Slovaks, and Spaniards (Catalans) settled here to develop agriculture and craftsmanship with their knowledge and skills. Thus, Vojvodina of that time became a true small European Union, and the legacy of tolerance and multiculturalism is still a characteristic of this part of Serbia. Hungarians spiced up the diverse architecture with their Art Nouveau at the end of the 19th century, leaving an indelible mark and legacy in these areas.
The twentieth century brought new historical circumstances, wars, displacements, and resettlements of peoples, shifting borders. Today, Serbia is still a country between East and West, between past and future, without clearly defined borders (Kosovo).

Nature – Great Outdoors.

Nature and relief – Serbia is not a large country but highly diverse. If we were to start from the north of the country to the south, we would pass through the vast Pannonian Plains, the former bottom of the Pannonian Sea. The seemingly uniform and monotonous relief is intersected by wide river valleys and alluvial plains (Danube, Tisa, Sava, Tamiš, and Begej), loess terraces and hills (Telečka, Banat, Zemun loess terrace, Titel hill), sand dunes (Deliblatska – a unique desert-like relief in this part of Europe), and old plains mountains (Fruška Gora and Vršac hill) that were once islands of the Pannonian Sea.

Crossing the Sava and Danube, we move from the Pannonian Plains to the hilly Balkans. The relief becomes dynamic, with river basins and canyons alternating (Đerdap Gorge, Drina Canyon, Ibar Basin). The eastern and western parts are dominated by karstic relief with caves (Resava, Stopića cave, Ceremošnja, Rajkova, Potpećka), sinkholes, springs, natural bridges (Vratna), sinkholes, and gorges. The central part (Šumadija from Avala to Kopaonik) is characterized by volcanic relief, mostly non-exploded volcanic domes and plateaus. Thanks to its geographical diversity and biodiversity, Serbia now has 5 National Parks (Fruška Gora, Đerdap, Kopaonik, Tara, Šar Mountain) and 2 more in the process of declaration, numerous nature parks, and protected natural assets.

Cultural heritage.

If you expect to be fascinated by the monumentality and grandeur of centuries-old structures and buildings, you will be disappointed here. You won’t find that in Serbia. Serbia will enchant you with small things and details. Rajac wine cellars, Drvengrad in Mokra Gora, Skadarlija in Belgrade, Ćele Kula in Niš, wine cellars on Fruška Gora, watermills, and windmills scattered throughout Serbia…

Tourist Destinations in Serbia.

Serbia offers modern tourist centers of the highest world standards (Kopaonik, Zlatibor, Vrnjačka Banja, Fruška Terme) but also traditional rural households (from farms in the north to mountain cottages in the south) where you will feel like time has stood still at some point. Whichever option you choose, you will experience traditional Serbian hospitality, cuisine, and kindness.

Serbian Food and Spirits

Food in Serbia is a special story. Serbia is known as a destination where you eat well. Historical influences in this area have also affected food. Today, Serbian cuisine is a combination of the Orient, the Mediterranean, and Continental (Habsburg) Europe. Everyone will find something to their liking. Good food is accompanied by good indigenous wines and increasingly popular craft beers from small producers. It’s up to you to explore! Anyone who has been to Serbia and hasn’t tried homemade rakija (brandy) as if they haven’t been to Serbia. Cheers!

Belgrade – The Capital.

If you start your journey in Serbia in the capital Belgrade, set aside at least two days for sightseeing and getting to know the city. Belgrade Fortress, located above the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, has been one of the most important strategic locations in Europe throughout history. It is surrounded by Kalemegdan (Turkish battlefield), a witness to some of the greatest and most numerous battles. Numerous museums and galleries will satisfy everyone’s taste and need for experiencing art and culture. You can best experience the spirit of Belgrade and its people by visiting one of the countless taverns, restaurants, pastry shops, or dessert shops. Good nightlife has made Belgrade famous worldwide.

Travelling Around 

If you start your journey from the north, Subotica will delight you with its Art Nouveau architecture, while Novi Sad with its cosmopolitan spirit, Petrovaradin Fortress, and one of the largest music festivals in Europe – Exit Fest held there every July.
Lovers of good wines can acquaint themselves with different wine regions of Serbia and taste indigenous grape varieties characteristic of this area at a relatively short distance.
Extreme sports enthusiasts will be pleasantly surprised by the amount of adrenaline during rafting on the Drina River in May, mountain biking, and paragliding in our mountains. In the tourist facilities, there are more and more adrenaline parks that complement this type of experience. We must not forget about skiers and snowboarders, for whom Kopaonik, as a world-famous ski resort, offers the opportunity to ski on over 50 km of groomed ski slopes at altitudes over 2000m ASL.
For those coming to Serbia to relax and enjoy, Serbian spas offer numerous amenities. From private accommodation, through apartments for rent, to modern wellness and spa complexes that have been built in recent years based on world spa centers with thermal pool complexes, aquaparks, massages, treatments, and complete health services.
And if you want to experience a bit of everything, organized package arrangements will offer you a complete experience of Serbia as a unique tourist destination.
