BALKAN ADVENTURE TOUR
SERBIA, BOSNIA AND HERCEGOVINA, MONTENEGRO
13–19 September 2016.
SERBIA/BELGRADE
Serbia is situated in the central part of the Balkan Peninsula, at the vital crossroads between the
Western Europe and the Middle East – a geopolitical hotspot. Disproportionately to its size and
influence, Serbia often found itself in focus of the global and European attention throughout its
remarkable and eventful history, which has left many historical landmarks and memorials worth
seeing in our modest country. The most notable part of Serbia’s cultural and historic heritage are the
medieval Serbian monasteries and churches, in which we are endlessly proud today (some are
included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites). If you wish to greet Serbian people, you can
either shake hands with them or kiss their cheek three times! Serbia is a small country with beautiful
and unexplored nature, which has balmy effect on the soul distraught by the hasty pace of modern
life, whereas, on the other hand, it does not lag behind the contemporary trends of the world. The
country’s capital city, Belgrade, is the most evident indicator of this.
Belgrade is the capital city of Serbia. Many people still remember it from the times of the former
Yugoslavia, as the hub of high-profile events in the Balkans, which has remained unchanged to the
present day. With a population of about 1.6 million, it sits at the captivating confluence of the rivers
Sava and the Danube. The city’s most prominent landmark is the Kalemegdan Fortress, overlooking
the confluence. Belgrade has a reputation of a lively, never-sleeping city, famed for its nightlife and
sociable inhabitants, as well as for countless restaurants and cafés throughout the city, offering
different programmes every day. Belgrade is definitely becoming Europe’s new recognizable tourist
destination, rapidly climbing the ladder of popularity day after day.

Visegrad is a town in eastern Bosnia & Herzegovina, situated on the banks of the river Drina. The
town is well-known for the historic 500-year-old stone bridge on the Drina – the Mehmed Pasha
Sokolović Bridge. The old Visegrad town lies next to the bridge. Located 300m from the bridge, on a
strip of land between the rivers Drina and Rzav, there is a small, cultural complex for tourists –
Andricgrad. The complex is dedicated to Yugoslav novelist and Nobel Prize winner Ivo Andric, who
popularised the Mehmed Pasha Sokolović Bridge in his novel The Bridge on the Drina.
Budva is a town on the coast of the Adriatic Sea and a popular tourist destination of Montenegro.
The coastal area around Budva, known as the Budva Riviera, is the centre of Montenegrin tourism,
well-known for its sandy beaches and diverse nightlife. The Old Town of Budva, with its medieval
stone walls and citadel, is one of the oldest settlements on the Adriatic coast.
