Many people will agree that there are a lot more places in Serbia than should be on this list. It was difficult to narrow down and pick one. The most special places in Serbia deserve to be the ones that leave a lasting impression and are worth returning to again and again.
Serbia’s landscapes range from the vast plains of Vojvodina, the country’s breadbasket, to the dramatic mountains, and gorges of its national parks, in the west, south, and west.
Ex-rulers such as the Habsburgs or the Ottoman Turks have left their legacy in architecture and cuisine. It is truly a place where East meets West.
Belgrade, Serbia’s capital and largest city, is located at the confluence between the Sava River and Danube Rivers. It has a rich history and is home to the Vinca culture. This culture was developed in the 6 th century BC. Since then, it has been inhabited continuously by different peoples. It was once a Roman colony. Later, it was settled by Slavs and ruled over by the Ottomans. The capital of Yugoslavia became the Republic of Serbia.
Belgrade has a lot of sights to see. You could easily spend five days exploring these sites, eating at different restaurants, and taking in the world-famous nightlife scene. The Kalemagdan Fortress is a must-see in Serbia. The old citadel is located here, as well as a park that offers stunning views of Belgrade. We also visited Ada Lake which is a small peninsula with its own beach in the summer.
Mir-Jam describes the charm of a small village in Mir-Jam’s novels as a patchwork of thousands of flowers that decorate private yards. There are two rivers and seven artificial lakes, so it is known as the “Venice of Vojvodina”.
Bela Crkva, a small community in the south of Banat and one of the poorest economically in Serbia, is very rich in geography, nature, and tourism potential. The artificial lakes of Bela Crkva are undoubtedly the most popular attractions. They were formed over decades by the digging of gravel in the fields between Vracev Gaj and the city.
These excavations were immediately filled with the remains of the Pannonian Sea, groundwater, and inhabitants unconsciously created seven water oases that more than 10,000 tourists use daily when the season is at its peak.
Resava cave is located about 30 minutes from Despotovac. This limestone cave is full of stunning rock formations and stalactites.
Guided tours are available. The cost for the entrance is 900 dinars per person (roughly $9). Romy was given the entrance free of charge. It takes approximately 40 minutes to cover 800m. However, the entire cave is 4 km long.
The inside temperature is a comfortable seven degrees. This was slightly warmer than the outside temperature on our visit!
Romy was not impressed with the cave, but I would say it was more about the fact she needed to take a break and didn’t want one. It’s a beautiful and interesting point of interest in Serbia that we recommend.
The cave has a small play area that is just swings and seesaws. You can also access a high-ropes course on the site if that’s your preferred activity.
Take a look at these important travel regulations that are necessary to fulfill before traveling to Europe.
Viminacium was an important provincial capital and military base during the Roman era. It is located 7 miles from Kostolac. It was built in the 1 st century AD. At its peak, it was home to approximately 40,000 people, making it one of the largest cities at that time. It lies along the Via Militaris Roman road. Viminacium was badly damaged by the Huns during the 5 th century, but Emperor Justinian rebuilt it before it was again destroyed by the Slavs during the 6 th century.
Viminacium is an archaeological park that recreates the times when the Seventh Legion Claudia was located there in the 4 th century. We walked through the covered excavations, where we could see the ancient roads and public bath systems, as well as human remains in the Necropolis.
The amphitheater has been reconstructed and the visitor’s center was designed to look like a Roman villa. This is a great day trip from Belgrade, for history enthusiasts.
