Serbia is one of the countries of ex-Yugoslavia, and has a history dating from the 12th century. In 2006 Serbia became one of the newest countries in the world after it split up with Montenegro. Serbia has a great history and there are a lot of traces remaining as proof.  Serbia is also a land of great beauty, although this has not been publicized as much.

The vibrant and gritty capital of Belgrade has been destroyed countless times during its over 2000 year history.   It does not possess the historical riches that you might expect from such an ancient city, but does contain a pair of very interesting museums.   The Nikola Tesla Museum has a number of fascinating and visually impressive electricity related exhibits, while the Military Museum does a fine job of chronicling Yugoslavia’s lengthy war history.   Belgrade's nightlife is excellent and can go all night long.  Check out some of their parties.

Elsewhere in Serbia is the massive 15th century Manasija Monastery with its colorful frescoes, and the open-air museum of Sirogojno, a picturesquely set reconstruction of a 19th century Serbian village.   The university town of Novi Sad is dominated by the giant Petrovaradin Citadel (The Danube Gibraltar, also home to the massive summer music festival Exit).   Located in the north of Serbia, its architecture is like that of Western Europe. A walk along its walls results in some stunning views.

There are a lot of prehistoric sites in the north of Serbia such as Lepenski Vir, which has evidence of human habitation dating back to 7000 BC.   Serbia also has a lot of monuments dating back to the 12th century. A lot of churches however have been destroyed unfortunately in Kosovo, to the south of Serbia, after the war.

Other notable places include Fruska Gora, which has a lot of monasteries, and Nis (or Naissus ), an ancient town, where Constantine the Great was born in the first century.  

Serbia has great natural attributes that you can enjoy at every time of year.  Beautiful lakes, spas,  and mountains abound (including Kopaonik for those who enjoy skiing).  Djavolja Varos (Devil's Town) is an exotic rock formation that was nominated for the New Seven Wonders of Nature.

Travel Tips from people who've been to Serbia
The most North-European like Serbian city. Looks similar to Central Europe towns and cities. Has an unique charactern of a city with Balkan and Central European background at the same time. I strictly recommend the Old Town and Petrovaradin fortress at Danube shore.

Subotica is a city and municipality in northern Serbia, in the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina. Today it is Serbia's fifth largest city.

*The name Subotica derives from the Serbian and Croatian word for "Saturday" or "Sabbath" and first appeared in 1653. The Serbian and Croatian word for "Saturday" is subota (субота), thus the name Subotica means "a little Saturday"

Beograd.Nekad sam se jezio na sam spomen imena tog grada,a sad mi se cini da je pravi grad za izlaske.Terazije ili Splavovi na Savi sasvim je svejedno.Jeftina i dobra zabava puna crnog humora na svoj racun, i grad sa  nigdje vise zgodnih sponzorusa na svijetu.Dobar provod zagarantiran,samo ne spominjite Kosovo.
