Prices for alcohol and cigarettes in Serbia

We recommend trying fruit wines, bermet and vranats. These are national Serbian drinks. Pelinkovats, as for me pectusin from childhood, I don't like that :). Rakia is the same moonshine. The beer is not tasty and watery. In general, alcohol in Serbia is affordable.

Prices for pastries and Serbian fast food

If in our country there are shavermeats, hot dogs, McDonald's and other fast foods at every step, then in Serbia there are Pekars and Sausages, in our opinion, Bakery and Sandwich shops, at every step. Some bake the freshest and most delicious pastries, while the latter prepare national Serbian takeaway dishes instead of the usual hamburgers. I advise you to try everything.

Serbia is still difficult to call a "promoted" destination, but in one of the types of tourism it will easily give odds to many countries. We are talking about health tours: local resorts are rightfully considered one of the best in Europe in terms of the number and combination of therapeutic factors. At the same time, they have quite modern equipment and set extremely moderate prices for their services by "average European" standards. Other advantages of tourist Serbia: good nature, mild climate, ample opportunities for hunting and fishing and a good historical "excursion".

Modestly peering over the shoulder of its more popular ski neighbors in Europe, winter Serbia lures the current discerning tourist with low prices, a close flight and a Slavic soul. The condition of the slopes cannot be determined unambiguously - rather, the optimistic phrase “he will try” comes to mind. And the country is really trying with might and main: new tracks appear every year, as well as "adult chips" like night skiing. Another plus is the extremely affordable ski schools with Russian-speaking instructors.

Regions and resorts of Serbia

The capital of Serbia is Belgrade, which has survived many wars, but has retained its hospitality and vitality. The city, whose walls still keep traces of fresh bullets, today blooms and pleases tourists with ancient sights and a cozy atmosphere. The most interesting - in the districts of Stari Grad and Zemun: here are the Belgrade Fortress, streets with colorful restaurants and equipped beaches. Most of the hotels are located in the Novi Beograd area with modern buildings.

The second largest after the capital is Novi Sad, founded in the 17th century, almost completely destroyed by the revolution, and then rebuilt. Its main treasures are numerous museums and galleries, temples of all denominations, the Hungarian fortress Petrovaradin and the ancient Dundjer castle in the vicinity.

Nis is the birthplace of Emperor Constantine, the founder of the legendary Constantinople. His residence Mediana still impresses with its scope and luxury.

Another large Serbian city is Subotica, the heart of which is the pedestrian street Korzo with neo-Gothic and modernist buildings. First-class restaurants - on the street. Corvina, noteworthy souvenirs - in a shop at the City Museum and at the Bouvlyak flea market.

Serbia is famous for its balneological centers: in Vrnjacka Banja they treat diabetes and digestive disorders, in Niska Banja - the heart, in Soko Banya - the lungs. Banja Koviljaca is famous for its healing baths, Zlatibor has a unique microclimate, and Buyanovachka Banya is in the top of the best European resorts. There is also a ski center in the country - Kopaonik with 60 km of modern slopes. Full information about the cities of Serbia - on our page.

Everyone needs walks in nature, they need to breathe clean air, feel energized and relax among the lush greenery of century-old forests. Food and drink in Serbia has retained its natural taste and freshness. You can drink water from mountain streams or eat a fruit just plucked from a tree.

However, if you are looking for a more active holiday, we suggest you go sailing or rowing, and as for rest on land, we suggest cycling or skiing. Along with river cruises on cruise ships, you are also encouraged to sail on your own on the calm rivers and lakes of Serbia, or take part in one of the many regattas.

Water tourism

The Danube is the most popular river in the world when it comes to river cruises. Travel along the Danube is carried out in the daytime, in the evening ships dock in the ports of Novi Sad or Belgrade, where additional services are organized for tourists traveling on large river liners (bus sightseeing tour, acquaintance with cultural and historical sights, etc.).

The Danube is the longest river in the European Union. The length of its channel on the territory of Serbia is 588 km, from the settlement of Bezdan on the border of Serbia with Hungary to the Timok River at the junction of Serbia's borders with Romania and Bulgaria. The Danube section located in Serbia can be divided into three main parts:

  • Vojvodina - on this part of its route, the Danube has all the features of a flat river: when the water level rises, the river overflows, forming numerous branches and river islands, with the flora and fauna typical of this area ...

  • Belgrade - Djerdap. - Flowing through Vojvodina, the Danube receives the waters of the Tisza and Sava rivers, which turn it into a large, powerful river. Also, downstream of Belgrade, nature and landscape are starting to change. The most important settlements in this part of the stream are: Belgrade 1170 km, Pancevo 1154 km, Vinca 1145.5. km, Grotska 1132 km, Smederevo 1116 km, Veliko Gradishte 1059 km
  • Djerdap gorge. - The largest gorge in Europe, occupies a section from 931 km to 1048 km of the Danube valley, dividing into two parts: the Upper gorge, which forms the Golubatskoe gorge and the gorge of the Lady's whirlpool, and the Lower gorge, which forms the Kazan and Sipskoe gorges. The most important settlements in this part of the Danube valley are: Golubac 1042 km, Lepenski Vir 1004.2. km, Donji Milanovac 991. km, Tekia 956.2. km.
  • Kladovo - the mouth of the Timok. - Flowing out of the Djerdap Gorge, the Danube continues its journey, surrounded by calm hills, through the Djerdap reservoir, which occupies 80 km of the Danube channel - from 943 km to 863.5 km, i.e. from Karatash to Prahovo. The most important settlements in this section: Kladovo 933 km, Brza-Palanka 883.5. km, Prahovo 861 km.

Peculiarities of winemaking in Serbia

Unusual taste of local wines is ensured by the favorable location of the country. Most of the territory is located on sands formed on the site where the Pannonian Sea raged in prehistoric times. This is why Serbian wines are most often called "Wines from the (white) sands". Sandy soil, high-quality varieties of vines, a moderate climate for fruiting - all these factors make it possible to make very tasty wines.

Winemaking in Serbia has been flourishing for over two millennia. A special tradition of winemaking has been preserved in the Subotica-Khorgosh region. A little later, winemakers appeared in the Backa region, where wine production was established at a time when European vineyards were massively affected by the invasion of the North American phylloxera. Three more wineries have opened in Chok, Palich and Pearl Island (in the area not far from the city of Novi Becei). These regions are still the main ones in the wine industry in the region.

And the Choki winery has already become a real monument of high wine culture, of which there are not so many in the whole world. The wine cellar at the factory is furnished in a very traditional way - there are seven cold corridors in which containers with wine are located. In total, it can hold about 330 isometric wagons of wine. It is stored in oak barrels (130 in total) with a capacity of 1.5 to 11 cubic meters and concrete containers lined with glass with a capacity of 33 to 67 cubic meters.

The largest wine storage capacity has traditionally been overgrown with its own history. It is about the size of a small room, so the eccentric Count Lederer, who founded the winery, initially threw parties in it.

The Palich Wine Cellar was founded on the site where an agricultural school was built in 1896. Later, a castle with wine cellars appeared nearby. Wine produced in good tradition from vines grown on the Subotic-Horgosh sands was exported to London, Budapest and other European markets.

24 hectares of land have been allocated for vineyards in the Subotic-Horgosh Sands. Vineyards surrounded the villages of Subotica and Kanizha. Traditional grape varieties, known since ancient times, are grown here. Previously, Kadarka grew everywhere, which was gradually replaced by the Kevidinka variety, and Crocan nutmeg grows not far from Novi Becha. The new vineyards are mainly Riesling and Chardonnay, Muscat, Semillon, Merlot, Cabrenet, Frankovka, Zhuplyanka and Burgundy. Thanks to high-quality varieties, favorable climate and soil, excellent grapes grow, which are used to prepare wines that are harmonious in taste, delicate in bouquet and easy to drink.

The main wineries located in the Subotica-Horgosh region are the WOW Winery and the Choka Winery, producing well-known European drinks: Serbian Muscat Ottonel, Merlot, Zhdrepcheva Krv, as well as various types of pino (noir, gris, blanc).

To go down to the wine cellars of famous winemakers, prior arrangement is required. When visiting, you can chat with the wine knights of the "Arena Sabatkienze" order. They will demonstrate the culture of wine drinking and special clothing, tell about old customs, and reproduce rituals. To be accepted into this knightly order, the applicant must demonstrate a knowledge of wine.
