Serbia

Serbia is a country of particular charm and authentic people. Numerous prehistoric sites are evidence to the prosperous life from the earliest times in this region.

Serbian mountains are oasis of rich forests, clean air and limpid waters and waterfalls. In the middle of these oases, there are villages that carry on the traditions and customs and artisan work that has been handed over from father to son. To get to know Serbia you should get to know Serbian villages first. Typical cuisine of every region, with all its delicacies, can be tasted only on the spot. South from Belgrade, Serbia is almost 45% forest, in south-western Serbia mostly pine, and many people choose to take advantage of the walking, free state-run campsites, bird watching, crystal clear rivers and lakes that populate nature reserves. You can walk and cycle without seeing a people for hours. For nature lovers, Serbia offers the perfect nature holiday.

Serbia is a country on southeast Europe’s Balkan peninsula with northern plateaus and mountains with ski resorts to the south. Capital city Belgrade is home to Communist-era architecture and Kalemegdan Park, site of Belgrade Fortress, held successively by the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires. Stari Grad, the old city, is home to 19th-century mansions, plus opera and ballet at Narodno Pozorište (national theater).

Background

The Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes was formed in 1918; its name was changed to Yugoslavia in 1929. Serbia was formerly the political and cultural center of Yugoslavia. In 2006 Montenegro voted, after a referendum in favor of independence, to leave the State Union. So Serbia has been obliged to officially proclaim its independence on 5 June 2006.

Serbia has an ambitious goal of joining the EU by 2020. In January 2014 Serbia opened formal negotiations with the EU for accession.
