Isn’t it time you discovered the ‘Serbian Athens’? The beautiful, cultured city of Novi Sad in northern Serbia has a rich and fascinating history. Uncover the city’s secrets on a sightseeing tour and rest your tired feet at a stylish hotel stay afterwards.
On day two, head off on a hiking tour of Fruška Gora mountain, followed by an organic lunch and a visit to Uroševic Winery to sip some local nectars. Folk musicians will entertain you with traditional tambura music and you’ll spend the night in nearby Andrevlje.
The Danube is calling: on day three, visit the sleepy village of Neštin (famous for its vineyards), before going canoe-kayaking along the sparkling Danube River. Enjoy a picnic by the river starring lots of tasty local dishes, or visit a local restaurant and sample freshwater fish from the Danube and dishes such as fish soup and fish stew, prepared by local fishermen.
The next day, combine culture and city thrills. You’ll start by visiting the 15th-century Grgeteg Monastery, pausing at Perko’s farmhouse for a rustic home-made lunch, before swapping rural life for the bright lights of Belgrade. During your stylish Belgrade stay, enjoy sightseeing and museum tours, plus an opera or philharmonic orchestra performance. There’s plenty of choice when it comes to food and drink: enjoy a traditional feast, visit one of the fine dining restaurants in the city centre, or head to one of the beautiful restaurants and bars surrounded by nature, but close to the city, such as Milošev konak or Bojčinska koliba.
The adventures continue on day five: hop on a short flight to Montenegro, followed by a transfer to Podgorica: the charming capital city. Montenegro is famous for its delicious grapes: get a flavour for them at the impressive Plantaže estate, Europe’s largest vineyard in a single complex. Afterwards, enjoy lunch hosted by a local family in one of the katuns (mountain huts), followed by a drive alongside glacial Lake Biograd to the town of Kolasin, in northern Montenegro.
Spend day six exploring Durmitor National Park, which showcases Mother Nature at her most impressive. Take your camera for the park’s lofty limestone peaks (including the highest, Bobotov Kuk) and glittering glacial lakes.
