Serbia Sightseeing

Serbia Sightseeing

Serbia is a country on southeast Europe’s Balkan peninsula with vast northern plateaus and mountains with ski resorts to the south. Capital city Belgrade is home to Communist-era architecture and Kalemegdan Park, site of an ancient fortress held successively by the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires. Floating nightclubs on the Danube and Sava rivers are a distinctive part of the city’s nightlife

Belgrade is the capital of the southeast European country of Serbia. Its most significant landmark is Beogradska Tvrđava, an imposing fortress at the confluence of the Danube and the Sava rivers. A testament to the city’s strategic importance to the Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, Serbian and Austrian empires, the fortress is now the site of several museums and Kalemegdan, a vast park.

Northern Serbia North of Belgrade, stretching up towards the Hungarian border and spanning the southern part of the fertile Pannonian Plain, is Vojvodina, one of Serbia’s most ethnically eclectic regions, with a large Hungarian minority. The region’s capital, Novi Sad, is a charming spot that’s a feasible day-trip from the capital or a handy springboard north to Subotica and Hungary. It’s also an ideal base for forays into Fruska Gora, the gently undulating hills to the south peppered with medieval Orthodox monasteries. 

Southern Serbia South of Belgrade, the softly rolling hillsides studded with low red-roofed houses are the setting for three of the country’s most precious medieval monasteries: Zica, Studenica and Sopocani. Elsewhere, the south’s main city, Nis, conveniently straddles major road and rail routes to Bulgaria and Macedonia, and is an attractive small town with some fascinating sights.
