Serbia is a spirited, fascinating country and tourism has grown steadily. Belgrade and Novi Sad are lively, cosmopolitan and welcoming while rural Serbia, with hidden monasteries and breathtaking countryside, is an undiscovered gem. This edition of the guide features the burgeoning music festival scene, bird-watching, wine-tasting and Serbia’s growing litany of sporting stars such as Novak Djokovic. It includes a new section on the Danube cycling route. Updated throughout, the listings include boutique hotels, eco-lodges and backpacker hostels. The guide goes into greater depth than its competitors with more on the history, politics, culture and sights.
