It is at the crossroads of two worlds that Serbia has prospered for more than a millennium, between the Slavic and Western European civilizations. With Romania to the east, Bosnia to the west, Hungary to the north and Bulgaria to the south, we are undoubtedly right in the heart of the Balkans. A simple stroll through Belgrade, the Serbian capital, will convince you: you will meet Orthodox, Catholics or Muslims, i. e. Serbs, Croats, Bosniacs, Hungarians or Albanians. But Serbia cannot be reduced to its capital, far from it, and that is what the Serbian tourist guide intends to prove. A visit to this part of Central Europe will be marked by many vestiges of the past, from ancient and impressive Roman cities to medieval castles, not to mention the profusion of monasteries with a rich territory. As you cross the mighty Danube, you will cross some of Europe's most beautiful natural parks before reaching the Iron Gates, the continent's largest parade. Rural tourism, cultural discoveries, gastronomic surprises, holiday nights in Belgrade, if the country has all this to offer, it is from the hands of its warm people that the beauty of Serbia will be presented to you. For those looking for an off-the-beaten-track getaway, Serbia does seem to fit the bill! Добродошли у Србију !
