Belgrade has always featured high on my list. Possibly yours too? Maybe Novi Sad too. Chance to see the legendary EXIT festival? However when you mention Serbia as a destination to tourists, you tend to find people prefer visiting the more prettier Balkan counterparts. However for the curious traveller who is willing to dig a little deeper, if you go beyond the old world charm and pomp of Belgrade you will discover a country rich in layers of history, culture, gastronomy and amazing festivals.
I was fortunate to receive an invitation earlier this summer to explore this hidden side of Serbia that is rarely visited by tourists. I went with little or no expectation and came away surprised and enriched by a rich range of experiences. I’ve summed up my experiences in the following 40 photographs. 40 images that will hopefully change your opinion of Serbia and make you visit this beautiful country.
