    Belgrade is the capital of Serbia, and the largest city in the Balkan region.
    A unique mixture where western and eastern cultures meet, influenced by the Habsburg and Ottoman empires who once ruled here. It is laid on the confluence of the rivers Danube and Sava. In the teeth of its turbulent history, Belgrade proudly keeps an everlasting soul with its many museums and Kalemegdan fortress.
    Its literal translation “White City” is denied in many ways by variety of architecture, delicious food and friendly citizens.
    Sipping rakija and listening to traditional music at the bohemian quarter Skadarlija, stopping by to one of the amazing bars to drink a beer or two and finally dancing all night long on riverboat-clubs, you will never be bored.


    Zlatibor is a mountainous region situated in the western part of Serbia.
    It is an important tourist area of Serbia, with resources for health tourism, skiing and hiking. The main city of the region is Užice, located at the foothills of the mountain, and most of the area belongs to the municipality of Čajetina. Town of Zlatibor emerged from a group of vacation homes into a full-fledged urban location. Zlatibor is famous as an air spa, where mountain and sea streams collide. It is also declared as a therapeutic region. An extraordinary beautiful mountain, with a pleasant climate, with spacious sloping grounds, rich pasture-grounds and mountain peaks. There are about 1000 square km of meadows and risings, sloping grounds and dry grounds, abysses and chasms...
    Nature was generous with Mt. Zlatibor giving it its beautiful scenery, rolling heights overgrown with pine, fir, and spruce forests here and there, vast meadows decorated with white narcissuses and other colourful flowers, very pleasant and mild climate, a great number of sunny days, unpolluted air and other amenities.
