Colors of Culture - Summer of Youth Profile Picture
Did you know that Serbia is a country of the most hospitable and joyful people? Have you ever heard about rakija? Do you want to try it along with our delicious food? Probably you have a lot of other questions about our country, so do not miss the opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture full of traditional and modern mixture.
Our adventure starts in the city that never sleeps – Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. Why is it called like that, you may wonder. Boat parties and restless organizers will give you the answer. Besides being the best city for nightlife, Belgrade is also one of the oldest cities in Europe, so by wandering through it you will stumble upon various styles of architecture and museums.
After spending a couple of urban lifestyle days in the capital, we will move to a peaceful National park called Fruška Gora. Night full of stars, beautiful nature and place to ourselves, make the perfect atmosphere for European night and trying international cuisine. Fresh air, hiking, leisure activities and all the breathtaking landscapes will help us charge our batteries before the final stop on our journey.
Finally, saving best for last – our beloved Novi Sad or as we also call it – the Serbian Athens. Here you will follow the traces to the beautiful city parks, glorious Petrovaradin fortress and its mysterious catacombs, magical city center and explore small but cute streets of Novi Sad. Also, you will get a chance to play volleyball or sip cocktails on sandy beach and enjoy the view from the lovely Danube riverside. Need we remind you that Novi Sad is the city of youth, as this year we are privileged to be the European Youth Capital? And two years from now in 2021 Novi Sad will become the European Capital of Culture! Keeping that in mind you will have the opportunity not just to fully spend the best Summer of your Youth, but also admire all the Colors of Culture Novi Sad is painted with.
We almost forgot to mention a visit to romantic city of Sremski Karlovci where you will taste the finest Serbian wines which were once served on the Titanic. Oh, don't forget that we will have the chance to visit Serbia's northernmost city of Subotica and be transported one and a half centuries in the past, as the city still has the same population and size it had then.
We do not want to reveal everything to you, but we have a lot more places that are waiting for you to be discovered and activities that you have to experience. Become a part of our story and let's make an unforgettable tale to tell.

Novi Sad

Welcome to the city Novi Sad, the second largest city in Serbia! The ''Serbian Athens'' is proud to be the European Capital of Culture for 2021 and European Youth Capital for 2019!
The city lies on the bank of the Danube river, and has the biggest fortress in Serbia- Petrovaradin fortress.
Novi Sad is well known for its great atmosphere and many cultural happenings. It has over 50 festivals! (EXIT festival- sounds familiar?). It is a place where traditional meets the urban lifestyle.


Belgrade is the capital city of Serbia. It is one of the oldest cities in Europe and has since ancient times been an important crossing of the ways where the roads of eastern and western Europe meet. Belgrade is the capital of Serbian culture, education and science.
Its name translates to ''White city''.
Belgrade has big historical importance, and is known for its big ups and downs throughout the history.
Big city and its cosmopolitan spirit, today are very famous in Europe for its great parties and crazy nightlife.


Keen on visiting a city which hasn’t change its population size in more than 150 years? Do you want to feel as if your back in the 19th century? Then Subotica is the place to visit.
The northernmost city in Serbia, Subotica stands at the border with Hungary. The city is proud to be a home to 26 nations and nationalities that have lived here for more than 3 centuries, which is the reason why Subotica as well as the province of Vojvodina are called Europe in Small.
Just outside of the city you will find a beautiful artificial Palic lake which used to be a favorite spot for Serbian and Hungarian Nobel families to spend their holidays during the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Sremski Karlovci

If you set out from the Petrovaradin Fortress to visit Mt. Fruska Gora, you will soon come to the town of SremskiKarlovci, old Serbian Orthodox spiritual center, with the oldest grammar school (f. 1791), and a theological seminary. Karlovci is also famed for its wine cellars. The green slopes of Mt. Fruska Gora are barely over 500 meters high and well known for their vineyards.
If you are in this area you should not miss to visit “Salashi” with their authentic appearance remind us of past, romantic times, of rural hamlets of the Panonia. Today they are keepers of time and a traditional way of life, and as such attract the attention of tourists.
