Serbia sightseeing. Travel guide - attractions, sights, nature and touristic places

Serbia is a country with wonderful culture that, despite its tragic war past, has managed to save its magnificent historic landmarks. Kalemegdan Fortress has become a so-called symbol of the country. For more than a thousand years the fortress has amazed visitors with its grandiose and powerful look. First settlements and villages started appearing around the fortress, slowly forming the city that we all know under the name Belgrade. You will see buildings of quite different styles in the territory of the fortress. This happened because the buildings were constructed during several centuries, so they all feature styles of different epochs. Nowadays, a military museum is open in Kalemegdan. Visitors of the museum will be able to see different collections dedicated to weapons - from medieval catapults and cannons to modern rockets.

Some interesting sights can be seen in the city of Kraljevo, where travelers can see a beautiful landmark - the Studenica Monastery. This is the largest Orthodox Christian church of the country, which is considered the head church for all other churches and cathedrals. The building of the monastery started yet in 1190, and in less than 10 years Studenica became an important religious center of the country. The modern monastery complex includes the church of the Mother of God, the Royal church, a cathedral and a bell tower. All the buildings have a great cultural importance and are worth visiting.
The city of Novi Sad is a popular tourist destination. Here travelers are recommended to visit the Petrovaradin Fortress. The fortress is distinguished by a very peculiar feature - the medieval complex has a giant system of underground tunnels that are built on four levels. The total length of tunnels and labyrinths is 16km. The fortress has become a popular venue for various art exhibitions, where visitors can see works of modern authors and buy the artworks they like. There are several cozy restaurants on the spacious terrace in front of the fortress, which are perfect for rest after a long excursion and for observation of beautiful landscapes.
