Visit Serbia

Serbia is a small country in the Balkan Peninsula in southeast Europe. Serbia has a population of around 7 million people and another 3 million Serbs live around the world, with the largest communities in Chicago and Toronto.

Serbia needed around 10 years to recover from the last war in the 1990s. Today, Serbia is the cultural and economic centre of the region. In the last few years, it has been a popular tourist destination because of its unusual natural wonders and cultural and historic monuments. It is a particularly attractive destination for Westerners because the prices are around 50% lower than those of European Union countries. It is also a popular destination for filming Hollywood movies. Lonely Planet named the capital, Belgrade, the number one city in the world for entertainment and nightlife!

Add Serbia to your list of travel destinations, and you will have an extraordinary experience!

I didn’t know what to expect when I would have before me a Serbian national park. But then it happened some time ago that my travels took me to the heart of Planina Tara. And it was there, my friends and loyal readers, that this strange mind I have was blown by such marvels as I had never imagined possible.

French-Canadian who married a girl from  Belgrade, has travelled extensively throughout Serbia, makes domaća kafa in his džezva every morning, boasts an impressive cache of village rakija, and sings starogradske pesme in the shower. He’s nuts alright, but most experts believe he’s harmless and might even be beneficial… if taken in small doses.

Gamzigrad – Romuliana

            The palace and legacy of the Emperor Galerius (293-311) is a testament to the palatial architecture of Late Antiquity, and is found in the region then known as Dacia. The palace was named after Galerius’ mother Romula. Even today, most of the luxurious buildings can be discerned through the uneven trapezoidal foundations which remain, constituting of a number of separate palaces, a temple, and heated bath houses, all enclosed within ramparts and gates. Everything is constructed from terracotta combined with various local stones. The remains of floor mosaics have also been discovered, along with other unique and valuable decorative objects, especially a mosaic depicting the god Dionysus, and statues depicting Hercules and Jupiter. This palace was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007.

I heartily recommend this route (Guca, Zlatibor, Tara, Drvengrad) for your trip through Serbia. Whoever has more time can certainly stay at each destination an extra day, experiencing the places more fully and at a more relaxed pace. But for the rushed Canadian travellers, who have a relatively short holiday, even these five days are invaluable for getting better acquainted with Serbia and experiencing some of its natural and cultural charms.
