Serbia is a landlocked country in Central and South eastern Europe, with a population of over seven million. It borders Hungary to the north, Romania and Bulgaria to the east, Macedonia and Kosovo to the south, and Montenegro to the west. Despite its small size, Serbia is home to varied landscapes and an abundance of natural beauty.
From the peaks of the towering Balkan Mountains down to the rolling hills and plains of Vojvodina in the north, via dramatic gorges, river canyons and pristine forests, there is plenty on offer for nature lovers in Serbia. The Danube River flows through much of the country, forming a beautiful and diverse ecosystem and providing ample opportunity for outdoor pursuits such as fishing, kayaking and rafting.
In the west of Serbia, the impressive Tara Mountain Range stretches along the border with Montenegro, offering great hiking opportunities and some of the best views in the country. The resorts of Zlatibor and Kopaonik offer skiing in winter and beautiful mountain scenery year-round. And finally, no overview of Serbia’s natural beauty would be complete without mentioning the eerie but stunning Djerdap National Park, home to Europe’s largest gorge.
So if you’re looking for a nature-packed holiday destination, consider Serbia – there’s something for everyone!
