Serbia is the rebel in the Eastern European class. Leave your political correctness at the door and throw aside your inhibitions – these feisty people love to have fun, and they want you to join them. They like nothing better than a good festival, serving their Rakija fruit brandy, and a greeting which consists of no less than three kisses. Tourists in Serbia will find it pleasantly affordable. Accommodation, eating out, and entertainment is much cheaper than back home. Great food comes as standard and is well priced in supermarkets and restaurants. A natural landscape covers Serbia and since there’s not much tourism, much of it is unspoiled. Keen skiers should head to Kopaonik, which offers wonderful countryside views and great runs. History fans will love Belgrade’s Kalemegdan fortress, where you can take an audio tour of this historic structure. Party animals only need to locate their local “Kafana”, where they can socialise and drink into the small hours. The Exit music festival is known worldwide, or try the Guca festival for more traditional Serbian music, with the same party atmosphere.
