The capital city of Belgrade has many places that are worth visiting like the Belgrade Fortress which stands at the confluence of the Danube and Sava rivers. The other important landmarks of Belgrade are Saborna Crkva (the Orthodox Cathedral) and, Konak Kneginje Ljubice a Turkish style palace built for Princess Ljubica Konak in 1831.

Or step into one of the many floating restaurants on the Danube for a hearty meal. You could also follow one of Serbia’s wine routes.

The other wine routes are Vrsac, Smederevo, Oplenac, Zupa and Negotin. Go bird watching and hiking in the Fruska Gora Hills that lie to the south of Novi Sad.

Tesla museum
The Tesla museum in Belgrade documents the life and work of Serbia’s most noteworthy son, NikolaTesla. NikolaTesla was a great scientist and inventor in the fields of wireless technology, physics, electrical engineering and magnetic induction. He is credited with many of the things like mobile phones and safe electricity that we take for granted today. Serbia has honoured Nikola Tesla by naming the international airport at Belgrade after him and by printing his image on the 100 Din currency note. The Tesla museum, dedicated to this gifted but eccentric and misunderstood genius, is certainly worth visiting.

After the initial settlements and fortifications built in the Paleolithic and Bronze Ages, the Romans built a fort (Cusum) which stood till the Middle Ages. The Turkish, Hungarian and Austrian forces occupied the site alternately from 1235 and a new fort was constructed on the remains of the Cusum. The Austrians laid the base of the existing fortress in 1692 after the previous fortress was destroyed in 1687 in the war against Turkey.

Some history

Serbia is one of the six republics which came together to form the erstwhile Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. It is situated in the south of Europe, in the Balkan region. Albania and Montenegro lie to the south of Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina lie to the west; Hungary lies to the north and Macedonia to the south. Croatia lies to the northwest of Serbia, Romania lies to the northeast and Bulgaria lies to the southeast. Due to the Balkan wars against Bulgaria and Turkey, Sandzak, Kosovo and South Serbia joined hands with Serbia. Vojvodina joined Serbia after it broke away from Austro-Hungary when that empire fell in 1918. The Croatian, Slovene and Serbian territories that were under the Austro-Hungarian Empire also merged with the Kingdom of Serbia. This kingdom, in turn, merged with the Kingdom of Montenegro to become the Kingdom of Yugoslavia which was governed by Karadjordjevic, the royal dynasty of Serbia.

More information about your holiday

  • There are two major rivers which flow through Belgrade. They are the Danube and the Sava. Many old buildings stand tall on their river banks. A large fortress called Kalemegdam is also located on these banks. This fort has been built, remodelled and rebuilt by the Romans, Celts, Byzantines, Austrians, Serbs and Turks for more than 2000 years. It has many ports and towers and two long biking and walking tracks which skirt around the rivers.
  • Belgrade is reputed for its night life. There are whole night party clubs to suit every kind of tourist. “Skadarlija” is a street which is truly bohemian. Locals throng this street in search of folk music and authentic Belgrade dining. The street seems to be full of the nouveau-riche, educated businessmen who roam around in various states of inebriation and is not very popular with the foreigners. Strahinjiča Bana, known as Silicon Valley among the locals, is another street which is frequented by vulgar, loud, surgically enhanced folksingers and their entourage of wannabes and hangers-on. The Serbians love to enjoy a cup of coffee in one of the many bistros, cafés and bars.
  • Serbia is a safe tourist destination. Serbians are very helpful and polite. However do beware of pickpockets in crowded places and while travelling by public transport.
  • Most of the Serbians speak English, except the senior Serbians who are likely to speak in French or German. Tourists who visit Serbia in summer hear a generous smattering of Italian, German, English and French in Belgrade, owing to the large number of tourists. 
Where is Serbia located?

Serbia is located in the Balkans (which lies in the southeast of Europe) and the Pannonian Plain (which lies in central Europe). It is a landlocked country and shares borders with Romania, Montenegro, the Republic of Macedonia, Hungary, Croatia, Bulgaria and Bosnia-Herzegovina. Serbia also claims to share a border with Albania through the disputed territory of Kosovo, though it has no de facto control over the border. Serbia has access to the Adriatic Sea through Montenegro while River Danube provides maritime access to the Black Sea and the interior of Europe.

The northern region of Serbia has rich and fertile plains. There are limestone basins and ranges in the east of Serbia and the south eastern region is characterized by ancient hills and mountains. The highest point in Serbia is Ðeravica at a height of 2,656 metres. The area around the city of Mionica has experienced earthquakes in the recent past but none of them have been destructive.

What are the Serbian people like?

Serbia is home to people from many other countries like Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Rome and Hungary. Despite the presence of people from varying communities and cultures, the Serbians ensure that their own culture and traditions remain intact and the younger generation respect and follow their ancestral traditions and customs sincerely. But they are also very welcoming and accepting of people from other cultures and allow them the freedom to practice their own customs and traditions. The culture of Serbia, especially its crafts, arts and music, has been significantly influenced by its peasantry. The Byzantine Empire and the Serb Orthodox Church have also influenced Serbian culture till the Middle Ages. The Byzantine influence was considerably weakened thereafter by over three hundred years of Ottoman Empire which influenced Serbian music significantly. It also flourished during the rule of the Republic of Venice and the Halsburg Empire. The people of Serbia have been making renewed efforts at restoring their culture after independence in the middle of the 19th century.
