Serbia. What I’ve learned and first impression

Bela Crkva area, Vojvodina, Serbia

What I knew about Serbia before we came here? Well, I’ve heard that it’s a beautiful country, the food is delicious, and beer is cheap. That’s all.

Previously I was reading a lot of information about the country we were going to. I was making a wish-list of the things I hoped to see, and sometimes I was preparing more detailed plan of our journey. Yes, that’s how I rolled. But nowadays I prefer to travel with a clear mind and opened heart, ready for adventures. That’s the reason why I kept my knowledge of Serbia to a minimum. And this approach made me feel like an explorer.

Day trip to Vršac

Vršac, city center, Serbia

I can’t say that I am a spontaneous person. On the contrary, I prefer to plan everything, including our vacation: where to go, what to see, etc. But when I saw Vršac on a map that was given to us by the Tourist information center of Bela Crkva, I got curious and googled it. Main thing that made me want to go there was the medieval Vršac tower (Vršačka kula). If you have been following my Instagram or my blog for some time now, then you know about my love for everything that was built and made in the Medieval Ages. So, I arranged a driver for us, and we hit the road next day.

Exploring Serbian cuisine. Where to eat in Bela Crkva area

Restoran Krajina, Kaludjerovo, Bela Crkva area, Vojvodina, Serbia

I’ve visited twenty countries or so and have tried dozens of different dishes. There were many that I liked and few that I loved… but so far only one country managed to blow me away with its cuisine. Beautiful, delicious, rich in flavors. And even a simple thought of Serbian food makes my mouth water.

One day in Belgrade. Kalemegdan and Belgrade Fortress

Victor Monument, Belgrade Fortress, Belgrade, Serbia

If you have only one day in Belgrade, then I’d suggest you visit Kalemegdan park and Belgrade Fortress. To be in Belgrade and not see the fortress is same if you come to Rome and avoid seeing Colosseum. As for Kalemegdan (park where fortress is located) is a great place for a whole family. And if you are not that interested in exploring medieval fortress, then there are other things you could do and check in this park.

What to do in Belgrade in summer

Belgrade Fortress, Belgrade, Serbia

To be honest I didn’t know what to expect from Belgrade. I haven’t red much info about this city before going to Serbia because I didn’t want other people opinions to influence the first impression. Only things I knew about it:

  • Belgrade is not that popular tourist destination
  • It’s better to visit it in the spring and summer
  • There are couple sightseeings worth visiting
