We love Serbia – check out our five top things which we believe make the country a brilliant holiday destination…

1. Brilliant Belgrade

Serbia’s capital city of Belgrade is a must-visit on your holiday, as a vibrant, bustling city offering a plethora of sights to see and activities to enjoy. Visit the landmark Belgrade Fortress here, the city’s largest free attraction located in the municipality of Stari Grad, offering beautiful scenery and a taste of Serbian history and culture through several museums.

Belgrade is also home to the impressive St. Mark’s Church, a 20th century Orthodox church located in the Tašmajdan Park and one of the largest churches in the country. Families in particular will enjoy Belgrade Zoo in the heart of the city, one of the oldest zoos in Europe and home to over 2,000 animals. Belgrade comes alive in the night for adult travelers, with a fantastic nightlife scene offering a huge variety of excellent clubs, bars and restaurants – the capital city truly ticks all the boxes!

2. Fantastic festivals

Serbia hosts an exciting variety of festivals throughout the year. Its capital city is renowned for doing so in particular, including Belgrade Summer Festival, Jazz Festival, International Film Festival, Free Zone Film Festival and many more. Serbian festivals offer something for everybody, from art and theatre to design and literature.

3. Stunning landscapes

Serbia boasts natural beauty at every corner, with gorgeous landscapes ready for you to explore and enjoy on your holiday!  Its National Park Tara boasts a variety of archaeological sites and monuments dating from the Neolithic period to modern times. The park offers gorgeous landscapes and sights, including the renowned canyon of the Drina River – an explorer’s paradise!

A visit to the peculiar rock formation Đavolja Varoš ‘Devil’s Town’ is also a must on your Serbian getaway. The formation is a complex of stone-capped pillars with a strange appearance on the Radan Mountain near Kuršumlija.

Serbia is also home to the Resava Cave, a 2.8 mile long and 1.75 miles deep cave located near Jelovac in eastern Serbia. The cave, which is one of the oldest in the country and a protected site, offers mesmerising halls, narrow channels, cave galleries and waterfalls – an unforgettable experience on your holiday.

The city is home to the imposing 18th century Petrovaradin Fortress, an iconic clock tower and much more. You can learn more about the history of the city in the variety of museums here too, including the Museum of Vojvodina and Matica Srpska Gallery.
