A COUNTRY WITH A SOUL
Published by Thiago Ferreira on 01.09.2014.

What did you do in Serbia? Did you like it there? Those are the questions everyone inevitably hears upon their arrival back home after a trip to Serbia. They may sound simple, however, answering them is more challenging than it sounds...

You can say you visited Belgrade, a city located on the beautiful confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, a strategic location over which many peoples fought since times before Christ, but which is now completely peaceful.

 You can say you got into the biggest Orthodox church in the world (Saint Sava's Temple) or even the biggest lowland medieval fortress in Europe (Smederevo fortress).

 You can say you visited the land where two of the most important prehistoric cultures of Europe (Vincha and Lepenski Vir) arose or the land where as much as 17 Roman emperors were born, including Constantine the Great, and where amazing ruins of ancient Roman capitals can still be seen. Don't forget to mention this is also the land of Nikola Tesla, one of the biggest inventors of all time!

 

Whatever you say, you'll hardly make someone truly believe you enjoyed your trip, even when you tell them about how many interesting things you saw. After all, it's Serbia we're talking about, right? Deep inside you know there's much more to it... Serbia offers more than mere tourist attractions. If you have already been here, I'm sure you've certified that Serbia is a country with a soul!

 In most cases, people come to Serbia without having any clue what to expect, but after a short time they fall in love with this place for their own surprise. This happens because in here they find several things they can't find anywhere else in the world...

 Beginning with the Serbs! Some foreigners who have never been here might think they're wild and violent, but as soon you meet them face to face, you'll realize the Serbs are extremely friendly and hospitable. Don't get surprised if a complete stranger invites you to come over for a shot of homemade rakia or to try some homemade food! 

 By the way, the food is amazing! Some of the specialties are "pljeskavica", "burek", "sarma", "komplet lepinja"... They all have a very natural and delicious taste. Also, you'll find it hard to believe how much people here eat, especially if you get to make friends with someone and they invite you to have meal at their house. If you happen to be invited for a "slava" (a Serbian celebration), get ready to eat non-stop for three days!

 If you're looking to get into Serbian culture, besides visiting some of its museums, you should definitely hit a "kafana"! These traditional taverns where bohemians would gather centuries ago are today a place where people go have fun drinking, dancing and singing some very old typical songs. It's the most Serbian kind of fun out there! At the end of the night, you might catch yourself dancing on the table while singing in Serbian or even trying some steps of "kolo", the Serbian traditional dance. 

 The best thing about Serbia is that it's not an obvious destination full of mass tourists... It hides a lot of intriguing secrets on its streets, fortresses, "kafanas", people and everywhere you go. To get to know it, you must put yourself into exploring it on your own - you will certainly like your discoveries. As a matter of fact, Serbia is the perfect destination for curious, adventurous people... For true travelers who seek for authenticity and new, unforgettable experiences. Above all, Serbia is a country with a soul waiting to be discovered...
