Once part of the former Yugoslavia, much of Serbia's natural beauty is untainted, with lush forests clinging to hills and mountains perfect for camping and hiking, while the flatlands of the north contribute to most of the country's agricultural needs. Northern Serbia is the location for some of the few remaining monasteries built there over the years including Krusedol, which was built between 1509 and 1516 and Novo Hopovo, found in Fruska Gora's forests.

The Tara Canyon near the Bosnian border is a huge draw for citizens of Balkan countries. Located within the boundaries of Durmitor National Park, the canyon proclaims itself to be the second biggest in the world, after the Grand Canyon in Arizona in the United States. Water still flows through this canyon, and the whitewater rafting is superb. People come to hike in the mountains and discover the alpine lakes, the largest being Crno Jezero, while the ski resort of Jazibak brings in powder junkies during the winter months.

All of Serbia's cities, not least its capital Belgrade, have had a renewed sense of energy and vigour and are great places for tourists to explore. The people are animated and hospitable - and the love to party. The nightlife in Belgrade and Serbia's other urban areas are abuzz with locals out to have a good time.

Getting to Serbia is getting easier as time goes on, with trains arriving form Western Europe usually via Budapest, and regular services from surrounding countries like Romania, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Turkey and Greece. Arriving by ferry form continental Europe involves a trip from Bari in southern Italy, while some local routes arrive from Greece.

Serbia is a fabulous place to visit, full of history and culture and one of the best ways to see the Serbia tourist attractions is to travel the country by hire car which can easily be picked up from the airport.
