Serbia has been on our radar for nearly a decade so this was a long overdue visit. Our friend Rebeca was able to join us for a long weekend and the 3 of us hit the ground running – Belgrade to kick things off, followed by Novi Sad and Fruška Gora National Park, then on to Tara National Park, Mokra Gora and Zlatibor. Rebeca had to fly back to Spain while the two of us continued our adventures. From Zlatibor we drove towards Novi Pazar and visited several beautiful viewpoints (Kablar & Uvac) and a couple of monasteries (Žiča, Studenica, Crna Reka, Sopoćani & Đurđevi Stupovi) along the way. From Novi Pazar, we then drove to Niš and visited the Bubanj Memorial Park and infamous Skull Tower before making our way to the Roman ruins of Felix Romuliana. From here, we skirted the Iron Gates (river border between Serbia and Romania) while getting pummeled by heavy rain. Once the rain eased up, we squeezed in a visit to Golubac and Smederevo Fortresses. Next up was a return trip back up north to take in the highlights of Palić and Subotica. After leaving Subotica, we returned our rental car and spent our last 3 days in Serbia in the capital. Belgrade was easy to explore on foot at a relaxed paced. Overall impressions? Serbia was just as amazing as we’d hoped it would be while being easy on the wallet, and it lived up to our high expectations, both in sights and food. Poland is up next and we can’t wait!
