Americans: The Serbs Are Incredibly Friendly And Hospitable


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, 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.

That’s it. Serbian people are friendly and helpful. Welcome to Novi Sad. Welcome to Serbia. Well, read Jane’s post titled First Impressions of Novi Sad (Serbia) in full.
