ABOUT SERBIA

 

Serbia has been the bridge between West with East for centuries - a land in which civilisations, cultures, faiths, climates and landscapes meet.

It is located in the centre of the Balkan Peninsula, in South-Eastern Europe. Serbia as a Danube country is connected to distant seas and oceans. Serbia is a crossroads of Europe and a geopolitically important territory.

Serbia is on the crossroads of European history and as such, it is a mix of cultures, ethnicity and religions. Its people are one of the most hospitable and welcoming and recently, Belgrade was voted as one of the up and coming capitals of Europe. It hosted the recent Eurovison song contest and it is the home town of world names like Djokovic, Jankovic and Ivanovic; the ambassadors of New Serbia.

The cultural and historical heritage of Serbia begins with prehistoric archaeological sites and its legacy from classical antiquity. Perhaps its greatest riches, though, are in the many mediaeval Serbian churches and monasteries, some of which are included on the UNESCO World Heritage list. There were seventeen Roman emperors born in the territory of today's Serbia, and it is well-known that they all left monuments and built palaces in or close to their birthplaces. It may well be that the oldest ever found human settlements in Europe, if not in the world, can be found in country of Serbia.

Serbs are warm people, especially towards foreigners. Most Serbs speak some English and are eager to practice it (seniors, however, are more likely to speak German and/or French).
