Serbia Travel Guide


Overview

Still not exactly what you'd call tourist friendly, the Republic of Serbia has at least rid itself of the vile Slobodan Milosevic and finally become democratic. Now trying to ingratiate itself with Europe, Serbia is on the way to becoming not only hospitable but down-right friendly to visitors.

Tourists tend to like the capital city of Serbia, Belgrade best since it's so energetic, although a little dirty. The museums are full of national treasures while the architecture of the city is intriguing. As for the flat plains of Vojvodina, this is Big Sky Country, full of sweeping plains swooping down from neighboring Hungary all the way to the banks of the Danube. These plains are fertile, able to provide food for much of the country and the only exception to this is Fruskua Gora National Park, which is full of rolling dry hills, vineyards and several monasteries. Novi Sad holds a well-known music festival every summer called Exit, and the medieval monasteries of Sopocani, Studenica and Manasija keep the Serbian faith intact—and their Byzantine art is also impressive. In Novi Pazar, you'll find both monasteries and mosques as this Turkish section still thrives today as it did when the Turks ruled here a century ago. The mountainous Zlatibor provides excellent opportunities for skiing and hiking, as does Kopaonik.

Even people from Belgrade don't think their city is beautiful, but visitors and locals alike do agree it is a city with a heart, full of passion and grit. The architecture is an odd mix of hideous Soviet concrete blocks ala the rest of East European cities, along with grandiose homes from centuries past that survived the war. The Kalemegdan Citadel, situated between the Sava and Danube Rivers, has in its long history tried to protect the city. Leaving the citadel toward the city you'll find Knez Mihailove, an elegant road lined with shops, cafes, galleries, and restaurants. As for nightlife, you'd have to look hard to find a city which likes to have a good time more than Belgrade does. Underground clubs, hidden bars, floating bars on the river—it's all here all the time at all hours. The city folk just don't seem to get tired.

Food and drinks are cheap in Belgrade, as they are in the rest of the country, and you'll find loads of unique dishes on the menus, especially in the Bohemian Quarter, also known as Skadarska.
