Serbia

Serbia

For many years, Serbia has remained Europe’s hidden holiday gem – a warm and welcoming country blessed with astounding natural beauty and a fun-loving, party atmosphere. While Belgrade’s metropolitan feel and incredible nightlife have made it one of the most exciting capitals on the continent, it is by no means Serbia’s only attraction. The bohemian town of Niš is a laid-back delight, while multicultural Novi Pazar is architecturally breath-taking, and the country’s mountainous regions prove a spellbinding setting for a whole host of outdoor activities.

Despite its understandable focus on the future, Serbia is dripping with history and tradition, and visitors will be amazed by the number of landmarks that are tucked away in every corner of this small nation. With a package holiday to Serbia with Qatar Airways Holidays, you can discover the wonders of Serbia at your own pace and in your own style.
