Mountains, canyons and waterfalls await in Serbia, in the heart of the Balkans.
Serbia's capital Belgrade is on the confluence of the Danube and Sava rivers, and home to the historic Belgrade Fortress, the lively Skadarlija district and Saint Sava Temple, an 82-metre-high masterpiece that's one of the world’s largest orthodox churches and can hold a staggering 10,000 people.
Novi Sad is about an hour away, and has a young, lively vibe thanks to its post-secondary schools. Perched on the banks of the Danube River, there are great views from Petrovaradin Fortress and visitors love its downtown streets lined with pastel neo-Renaissance facades, making this one of the top places to visit in Serbia.
A popular weekend getaway is mountainous Zlatibor, known for its pristine landscapes, traditional wooden villages and outdoor activities like skiing and cycling. Head through Tara National Park on the way back where dense forests, meandering rivers and the Drina River canyon create an ideal setting for nature lovers.
