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.
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.
First of all, I would like to thank our good friends Dali and Ari because this magnificent holiday would not be possible without them. And thank you Dali for introducing us with your beautiful country, its culture, traditions and extremely delicious food!
If you are not interested in visiting Belgrade Fortress or if you want to see main attractions of Serbia’s capital in one day, then after a short version of Belgrade Fortress experience you could check out two most popular streets of the city – Kneza Mihaila and Skadarlija.
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.
