This Balkan country was part of Yugoslavia until 1992. Serbia is landlocked, unlike most of the Balkan countries, known for their beaches. The capital of Belgrade is a lively city of over one million residents, with an ancient fortress looming over the town and it’s famous Serbian restaurants. The city dates back to over 20,000 years ago, and the entire country has a rich history from being at the crossroads of central and southeast Europe.
QUICK SERBIA FACTS
Currency: Serbian dinar can be withdrawn from ATMs throughout Serbia, however keep in mind that smaller cities or towns may not have access to ATMs and its recommended to withdraw cash and take it with you.
Power Points: Most power points are the same as most other European power points (2 circular prongs). I would recommend you take a Travel Adapter especially for non Europeans.
Official Language: The official language of Serbia is Serbian.
Health: There are a few health concerns in Serbia for travellers. I would recommend that you contact your doctor a few weeks before you travel as in some cases you need to start any medication a few days before your trip or you may need to get a vaccination. The tap water is generally safe to drink, however, if you are unsure, make sure to ask your hotel receptionist or host.
