Famed through its exciting and restless historic capital Belgrade, Serbia today is a must-see stopping point on any East European itinerary. Travel to Serbia with Qatar Airways and explore a land of forests and mountains, ancient ruins and glittering cities, with its own colourful traditions and a warm and friendly welcome for visitors.
The cities of Novi Sad and Belgrade, with their historic monuments and mighty citadels, are home to fine restaurants, great entertainment venues and legendary nightlife. Some of Europe’s top music festivals are held in Novi Sad, while Belgrade’s museums and art galleries are world-class.
Other towns and cities in Serbia are more relaxed, and reflect a distinctly traditional facet of this old Balkan country. A town like Subotica, for example, makes a good day-trip destination from the capital. Here you’ll find some of the loveliest architecture in Serbia, and just a short drive away is the Palic lakeside resort, where you will be right in the heart of the countryside.
Serbia has a diverse landscape, with the north being mainly level agricultural land, rising farther south below the stunning Danube River to the foothills of the Dinaric Alps. The numerous wildlife species that inhabit the plains, and especially the mountains, have in some cases become extinct elsewhere in Europe.
Popular among outdoor enthusiasts, Serbia houses several excellent national parks that are great for day-visits from Belgrade, if that’s where you’re based. Fruska Gora and Kopaonik are the main ones. With so much to see and do here, you’ll never run out of things to do in this beautiful country in Europe.
