Belgrade is the country’s exuberant riverside capital.
Home to passionate artists and a heady mix of modern buildings and Soviet-era Brutalist edifices, it’s the best place to get a feel for modern Serbia.
Explore its wealth of museums and galleries in the day, then immerse yourself in its vibrant nightlife as evening falls.
Outside of Belgrade’s energetic streets, much of the country remains an untouched natural wilderness – and this pristine scenery makes Serbia the perfect adventure holiday destination.
Try mountain biking in the stunning Tara National Park, kayaking in the meandering Uvac Canyon, or go hiking in Derdap National Park – home of the dramatic Iron Gates gorge.
Serbia’s rich past means the country is home to an impressive number of ancient sites from different historical periods.
Take some time to stroll around the ruins of the Roman palace Felix Romuliana, wander the dark tunnels of the Petrovaradin Fortress, or visit the sacred Studenica Monastery – still active today.
Belgrade is the perfect place to stay during a city break to Serbia.
The area around Republic Square in Belgrade Old Town – Stari Grad in Serbian – is ideal if you want to be in the centre of everything.
Here, you’ll be within walking distance of most of the major tourist spots, restaurants, cafes and shops.
For a quieter stay in the capital, the neighbourhood of Zemun on the banks of the River Danube is a great choice.
Charming and peaceful, it’s perfect for family holidays in Serbia as it's slightly removed from the buzzing nightlife but still provides easy access to the main attractions.
It's also home to some of the city's best restaurants.
The local currency in Serbia is the dinar (KWD). ATMs are commonplace in large towns and cities, and major credit cards are generally accepted.
In addition to the particular religious holidays observed by different faiths, Serbia has a number of public holidays. Key among these are National Day (actually two days) on 15 and 16 January, and Armistice Day on 11 November.
The official language of Serbia is Serbian, however many other languages – such as English, Hungarian and Croatian – are also spoken.
Soups, stews and grilled meats are Serbian specialties. Try karadjordjeva šnicla, the Serbian version of schnitzel, and Sarma, stuffed cabbage leaves. For something comforting, order Đuveč - a meat and vegetable stew, similar to ratatouille.
Serbia has a long and complex past that goes back thousands of years.
Each successive empire has left its mark, and every city you visit has its own unique heritage and story to tell.
This means that a holiday to Serbia gives you the chance to explore a fascinating country that has more to offer the deeper you look.
