It’s little and landlocked, but Serbia is astonishingly pretty, with friendly locals who’ll bend over backwards to make you feel at home. Whether you’re planning a wild weekend in the capital or a road trip through the country’s spa towns and ski resorts, our map of Serbia will help you stay on track.
Emerging from turbulent times with newfound vigour, Belgrade is a full-on party capital with some beautifully bohemian bars. Further north along the Danube, Novi Sad hosts beach volleyball contests and Exit, a frenetic four-day music festival held in a hilltop fortress.
Serenity awaits in the Serbian countryside, where you’ll find giant caves full of toothy stalactites and meandering green rivers that are watched over by soaring eagles. When you’re tired of driving (and you will spend a lot of time behind tractors), stop at one of the spa towns like Vrnjačka Banja, home to warm, soothing mineral baths.
