Serbia is a country known for its great people and their exquisite hospitality. People of Serbia always welcome guests with open arms, hugs and kisses. Their hospitality and high spirits are their main characteristics. They will not let you leave until you have tasted some of the delicious traditional dishes or local brandy called “Rakija”. Belgrade, the capital, the only city built on the confluence of two rivers, is known as “the city that never sleeps” and the symbol of great nightlife. Skadarlija, the most famous bohemian street in Belgrade is a place where you can enjoy music and great food, and then finish you evening partying on numerous floating clubs, where parties last until first daylight.
Bosnia and Herzegovina : Sarajevo
The Bosnia and Herzegovina is a country shaped by 500 years of foreign domination, first by the Turks and then by the Austro-Hungarian empire. This is the most eastern point of the West and the most western point of the East. This 2 culture influence on the culture and architecture, is what we can see even today in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The main sight to visit in Bosnia and Herzegovina is Sarajevo, the capital city. Walking through central Sarajevo’s streets in Bascarsija and seeing the terraced villages in the hills gives a strong feeling of the East. On the other hand, the lavish Austro-Hungarian buildings along the Miljacka River feel European. Bosnia may not have beaches, but it has mountains. Peaks including Jahorina, Vlasic, and Bjelasnica are local hiking and skiing spots.
