Serbia - the new luxury travel hub in the Balkans

It's been a while since Europe hasn't seen a destination rise this quickly from the ashes. After years under the radar mainly due to the fall of Yugoslavia, Serbia has been swiftly developing itself into a new luxury travel hub, ready to host even the most demanding guests.

If you ask yourself if Serbia is ready for luxury travelers, rest assured the answer is - yes. Although it was elected one of the top 10 best value destinations for 2020 by the Lonely Planet, Serbia has long stopped being a destination just for low-budget travelers.

Belgrade's exponential growth in the hospitality industry, aligned with the creation of new upper-class neighborhoods (such as the Belgrade Waterfront), as well as the revitalization of artistic / industrial neighborhoods such as Dorcol, brought to the city a whole new vibe. Art galleries, trendy cafés, fine-dining restaurants and luxury hotels have been popping up in the city in recent times. The best of all: their creative design and ambiance perfectly blend with Belgrade's artsy, yet industrial atmosphere.

Outside of Belgrade, three destinations have been getting more and more attention in the luxury travel field:

Novi Sad, the capital of the province of Vojvodina, perfectly positioned by the Danube, has a authentic Austro-Hungarian, yet Serbian feel. This authentic city is just a 1-hour drive away from Belgrade;

Zlatibor, a mountain destination in Western Serbia, has had a tremendous infrastructure boost, including a new highway connecting it to Belgrade and many new 5-star properties;

Kopaonik, Serbia's most famous ski center, stands on top of one of the country's most beautiful mountains.
