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.


Kragujevac is the city of the first high school in Serbia, the first theater, the first capital. It is located in the center of Serbia, in the beautiful Sumadija region, known for its great wine, fruits and meat. You will have a chance to experience and taste the flavors of old Serbia and drink the best Sljivovica (plum rakija) and sing in kafana with the sound of traditional Serbian music.


Podgorica is the capital and largest city of Montenegro. From 1946 to 1992, the city was named Titograd in honour of Josip Broz Tito, the former President of Yugoslavia. Podgorica means “under the small hill”.
It is the administrative centre of Montenegro and its economic, cultural and educational focus.
Podgorica is a big city for Montenegro’s standards and it has a lot to offer. It’s the city for young people and it possesses irresistible charm. Podgorica is a university center, so the city is full of students during the school year. Visiting Podgorica, you’ll be visiting the youth of Montenegro.


Topola is a town and municipality situated in the Šumadija region of Serbia. It was the place where Karađorđe, a Serbian revolutionary, was chosen as the leader of the First Serbian Uprising against the Ottoman Empire in 1804. The local St. George Church is the burial place of the Ducal and Royal Family of Serbia and Yugoslavia. Historical and cultural monuments (Cultural Heritage of Serbia) exist: revolutionary and royal (Karageorge's town), ecclesiastical (St. George's church, Nikolje monasteries). It is a wine region (Oplenac), and a large hunting ground Kamenica.

Ivanova korita

National park Lovcen in Montenegro involves this cool place with adventurous park where all adrenalin lovers can get crazy and afterwards enjoy barbecue.
