Virtually every village in Serbia has at least one rural retreat that will welcome you on your quest to explore undiscovered areas far from the urban hustle and bustle and the crowded tourist resorts, and yet close to national parks, nature parks, rivers, lakes, monasteries, archaeological sites...
Along with the well-known hospitality of your Serbian hosts and hostesses, you will have an opportunity to experience the full diversity of rural Serbia. Vojvodina in the north is recognisable for its “salaš” country houses, known for their richly laden dining tables and their love of horses. In Šumadija and Morava Valley, you will stay in carefully furnished households and typical “Morava-style” houses.
In the wine regions, rural retreats will often have their own, well-stocked wine cellars. On the mountains of Western Serbia, you will rest inside cosy log houses with traditional wooden sleeping quarters known as “vajat”, while the distinctive feature of Eastern Serbia is the traditional mountain houses with porches on Stara Planina mountain.
For those who are unwilling to sacrifice comfort, Serbia offers small tourism complexes, complete with swimming pools and all other modern luxuries.
Wherever you go, you are sure to wake up to the sounds of nature, feast on delicious homemade food and freshly picked fruits and vegetables, learn about rural customs and traditions, discover places off the beaten path and, perhaps most importantly, meet some wonderful people.
Serbia awaits you with its rich and diverse rural tourism offerings.
