A swig of fruit rakiya and three kisses on the cheek are a sign of welcome in Serbia. Whether its après-ski, a night out on the town, or politics – the Serbs don’t do anything in moderation. Bursting with life and lots of fun, Serbia is full of spontaneity. Tall mountains level out into the plains, on which the Romans, Byzantines and Ottomans have all left their mark. Castles lie hidden within the forests, and folklore and legends are a large part of the culture. Hiking inclines in the summer give way to ski slopes in the winter.
Belgrade is a hub for music, art and literature. South Serbia has beautiful vineyards, and wine making in these parts goes back to the Roman era. While more commercial grapes are commonly grown, it’s the age-old Prokupac and Tamjanika varieties that are much sought after. Vrnjačka Banja, is famous for its curative waters and hot springs, which also date back to Roman times. The town is also known for its famous Bridge of Love.
