Zlatibor is undoubtedly one of the most attractive mountains in Serbia and the best choice for a perfect summer holiday. Through another great Serbian Adventures trip, I had the opportunity to get to know some of its true beauties, which I’m going to present to you in this blog.
If you think of a real adventure in Serbia, the first six words that come to your mind should be spontaneity, people, delicious food, laughter, and friendship. Of course, for having a really good time, you need to add a handful of positive energy and a craving for breathtaking nature you’re about to take in.
If you crave for a day spent in untouched nature with a group of true nature lovers and enthusiasts, then explore Fruška Gora Mount and Sremski Karlovci in the most adventurous way – by bicycle! Whether you’re an MTB lover or just an enthusiastic tourist who likes to ride a bicycle, this tour will surely meet your expectations!
For me, the especially inspiring journeys are those in areas of exceptional and unusual natural beauties. Western Serbia is definitely that. For the purpose of this blogpost, only a small part of the attractions that you must see during this visit to this part of Serbia will be highlighted.
Vineyards, wine cellars, wine - these are the first associations for the eastern part of Serbia. A sunny region with sweet grapes of various types really justifies the term "wine region". For the wine lovers, the journey to these areas is a delight, both in flavors and scents, as well as in the "eye-catching" natural beauties.
The capital of Serbia emerged from isolation and troubles in 2001 and soon became a destination for those in the know. A few years later and it came to be publicized as a destination for backpackers and youth – rough, cheap, welcoming. In the last decade it definitely re-appeared on the map of popular destinations in Europe and now hundreds of thousands of tourists, young and old, well-off or hitchhikers, from East or West arrive...
If people knew how much cultural treasure is hiding in Kosovo and Metohija, they would immediately cancel all their trips to Rome, Paris or Vienna. And if they knew that the media has been creating a false picture and that they are completely safe in Kosovo as tourists - the attractions in Kosovo and Metohija would be crowded with visitors.
Danube needs no introduction. Countless the poets, composers, painters, writers it has inspired. 2,000 years ago it served as the frontier of the Roman Empire, whilst, now, traverses ten countries and connects four capital cities. It is, without a doubt, the most important waterway in Central Europe and countless civilizations flourished on its banks.
If you thought that fairy tales were reserved only for those who have blue blood - then you were wrong. Fairy tales, just a century or two ago were reserved for the members of the Dunđerski family, which two of the three castles that we visited belonged to. Of course, when you start this trip you should exclude the expectation that you will see something like Disney's castles. Here you will see modest but very lovely buildings that lead us...
Located on the north, Subotica is a little charming city full of Central European influence in its architecture – which the city carries with such beauty. Even if it has that familiar Vojvodinian spirit, Subotica is still unique and different from other cities of Serbia. The thing I love the most about this city is its peacefulness, life without rush, easy steps on the main road and art nouveau style that doesn't look too intimidating but really graceful.
