This fascinating and unusual country offers friendly and hospitable people, gorgeous countryside, delicious food and endless entertainment.
For centuries Serbia stood between the East and the West, geographically, politically and culturally. First between Byzantine and Roman empires, then between the Ottoman Empire and the Christian West; the position led to migrations and mixing of cultures and traditions resulting in multiethnic and multireligious society.
Medieval heritage instated on UNESCO list include Studenica monastery, Stari Ras and Sopocani and Gamzigrad – Romuliana. Serbia has four national parks: Djerdap, Fruska Gora, Kopaonik, and Tara. Out of the twenty or so nature parks, the one that deserve to be singled out are Sargan – Mokra Gora, Stara Planina and Zobnatica.
We all need to take a walk in the countryside, breathe in some fresh air and relax in the rich surroundings of forests. Serbia is lucky to have most of it food and beverage naturally tasty and fresh. A rich blend of architecture, history, culture, and entertainment lies in Serbian cities.
