Theron Labounty, an American man from Colorado, and Sarah were recently in vaccation in Serbia. They went to Tara National Park and also visited the cities of Novi Sad and Niš. They discoverd what Serbian people really are, friendly, and liked their trip to Serbia. Here is a short excerpt of their blog post titled Adventures in Serbia:
The Serbs are incredibly friendly and hospitable… While we were in Serbia, we visited the cities of Novi Sad and Niš. Novi Sad has a great vibe in its beautiful town center with countless outdoor cafes. They also have a beautiful park along the Danube. Niš has some incredible historical sites. There are 4th century Roman ruins with mosaics comparable to those in Rome. There is a tower built of the skulls of Serbian soldiers by the Turks to celebrate a victory in 1809. Many of the skulls disappeared when family members recognized their fathers, brothers, and sons.
Jane, a British woman who runs RunawayJane.com, a site dedicated to giving tips and advice to young people travelling on a budget around the world, was recently in Novi Sad, Serbia’s second-largest city after Belgrade. She liked the city and the friendly local Serbian people:
Friendly local people
One thing in particular that really stood out to me while I was in Novi Sad was how friendly and helpful the local people were. Every time I went into a shop, bar, café, or restaurant, people made a real effort to talk to me beyond what you would expect. Even when their English wasn’t so good (and my Serbian was pretty much non-existent) they still tried and wanted to ask questions about where I came from, why I was in Novi Sad, and were keen to give me recommendations for the city. I stood out like a sore thumb at times as a tourist here as I wandered around trying to decipher street signs in the Cyrillic alphabet, but the people were always very helpful when I needed help or directions. In fact, it’s one of the most endearing things about the place.
Martin Pilar, a Canadian from Toronto, is currently traveling around Europe for a year. Early this May he spent a few days in Novi Sad, Serbia’s second-largest city after Belgrade. The pictures of Novi Sad made by Martin Pilar are so good that I ended up including the whole thing, because it’s too good not to watch — but check out Martin’s site directly.
Maja, a 27-year-old woman from Slovenia, was in Novi Sad (Serbia’s second-largest city after Belgrade) for this New Year. She wrote a fantastic blog post entitled “NOVI SAD – SERBIA :: Travel tips” talking about her time in Novi Sad. Here’s a short excerpt, but it’s worth reading the whole thing. Oops! Maja’s pictures of Novi Sad are also fabulous. Go to Novi Sad!!

A British woman visited recently the city of Novi Sad, Serbia’s second-largest city after Belgrade. She uploaded to Youtube a great video of the city of Novi Sad, “a beautiful city in Serbia with lots of lovely buildings” she said. Well, watch her video below:
It was the most amazing weekend away, Laura and I would like to thank all of the riders in Serbia for how accommodating they were to all of us, and all of the riders who made the trip even better for becoming our friends and making the trip so special.
One of the best European music festivals is EXIT. It takes place at the picturesque Petrovaradin Fortress, located on the right bank of the river Danube in Novi Sad, Serbia. It’s a well done promo video, but what is the point of showing only (yes, only) lesbians and gays kissing in the promo video? Well, here is the promo video of EXIT festival 2012 that will be held July 12-15 in Novi Sad:
