Travel to Serbia

Serbia Destination

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. 


Currency: Serbian dinar can be withdrawn from ATMs throughout Serbia, however keep in mind that smaller cities or towns may not have access to ATMs and its recommended to withdraw cash and take it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.

Drinking Tap Water: The tap water is generally safe to drink, however, if you are unsure, make sure to ask your hotel receptionist or host.

Visa: Most countries don’t require a visa for short stays, to visit Serbia.

Popular foods:
Ajvar (vegetable relish, made of red bell peppers and eggplant).
Punjene Paprike (peppers stuffed with rice, meat, and other ingredients).
Gibanica (cheese pie made with phyllo dough, white cheese, and eggs).
Podvarak (baked meat (roast chick or pork) and sauerkraut, garlic, finely chopped onions).

When to go: In general, March through May and then September through October are the best months to travel to Serbia to avoid the summer heat of June, July, and August.
