Serbia : Must See
This still little-known country has a great cultural heritage marked by its turbulent history, between colonization, invasions and the fight against the Ottoman Empire. Today's Serbia, cradle of many ethnic groups and of three main religions that are Orthodoxy, Islam and Catholicism, has inherited a rich heritage: castles, monasteries and vestiges of the past punctuate this destination outside the beaten track. The capital Belgrade is a fascinating city at the crossroads of East and West.
The Uvac meanders along the hills near Nova Varos. A boat trip over the winding waterways is the best way to experience this force of nature. From the viewing platform you can see almost the entire canyon. Griffon vultures live here and with a little luck you might catch a glimpse of these majestic birds.
Petrovaradin Fortress is the second largest of its kind in Europe and was built from 1692 to 1780. Today the fortress houses an observatory, a historical archive and the Novi Sad City Museum.
The Kalemegdan Fortress of Belgrade forms the historical core of the Serbian capital. Surrounded by a park, it is the most romantic place in town. Saint Sava Cathedral is one of the most famous landmarks in the entire region and is so tall that it dominates the city's skyline. Knez Mihailova is the most important pedestrian zone in the center, which is characterized by representative buildings that were built between 1870 and 1925.
