The Big Picture

Did you know?


Surrounded by eight different countries and close to the Mediterranean, Serbia is an adventurous, proud and beautiful country. Our vibrant culture is a rich mix of inherited legacies from ancient civilizations, gritty post-modern architecture and a progressive, outward-looking exuberance. The complex history of the Serbian nation has shaped our outspoken and stoic nature, creating strong family bonds with a deep sense of tradition, whilst also fueling innovation and creativity as we look towards the future. Closer than you may think, Serbia is just a 3 hour flight from London and only 1.5 hours from Berlin. There has never been a better time to discover, explore and enjoy one of the most rapidly evolving countries in Europe.
