I am in the middle of our 3000km biketrip & stopped in the best city: #BELGRAD #myserbia
Excited to get to know Serbia a bit better by following a great group of travel bloggers this week during
#MySerbia is a campaign by the National Tourism Organisation of Serbia started to make Serbia more visible among young travelers around Europe. For this purpose, we invited four well-known international travel bloggers on a week-long journey through Serbia (from July 23rd to 29th and July 28th to August 4th 2015.). They will be accompanied by four young Serbian bloggers. Together, they will share their impressions from the trip on their blogs as well as on social media using the campaigns official hashtag – #MySerbia.
Share pictures, videos and tips about your favorite places and activities in Serbia on social media using #MySerbia hashtag and recommend them to our guests. Best posts using the hashtag will be displayed on the campaigns website my.serbia.travel as well as NTOS social media channels.
As announced, after the end of the bloggers’ trips, together we have picked four users with the most inspirational #MySerbia posts. The winners of a surprise weekend holiday for two in Serbia are: @NevenaBK, @Buki_blog, @JelenaKandic, @DakleOptimista.
Thanks for sharing all these wonderful #MySerbia moments. No reason to stop now as we still have a couple of surprises coming.
