Serbia Travel Guide

by our Serbia expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryA monarchy until the 1940’s, Serbia’s fight for independence from the Austro-Hungarian empire was a key element of the outbreak of the First World War and it has constantly been embroiled in the seemingly inevitable wars of the region as a whole. For today’s visitor however, it is a country of much beauty and charm. Belgrade, the capital, bustles around not one but two rivers – the Sava and, of course, the Danube. Major attractions are St Sava’s Cathedral and the immense Kalamegdan fortress (which manages to tuck some of Belgrade’s sophisticated nightlife into its mighty walls). Novi Sad, the second city, is a relaxed, bohemian contrast to the capital, full of artists and with a highly regarded music festival. The smaller city of Nis in the south of the country is the reputed birthplace of Constantine the Great. There are several superb national parks outside the towns with Kopaonik (centred on the country’s highest mountain) fast becoming a must-go ski centre. Obedska Bara is a renowned bird and wild-life reserve and the Tara park offers an incredibly beautiful rafting journey along the Drina river gorge.
