Serbia Destination guide

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Serbia in a way like no other.

Once overlooked in favour of its beachy Balkan neighbours, Serbia is fast becoming a favourite stop on any Eastern Europe adventure. With its magical mountains and rivers, vibrant capital city Belgrade, and superb wine regions where ancient Roman thermal spas bubble over with healing waters, it’s hard to resist the pull of this diverse country. Our Serbia tours will take you through the lush forests of the countryside to the historic sights and lively locals of Belgrade. See the mighty Kalemegdan Fortress rising over the iconic Danube River, take in the spectacular views from the Avala Tower, or dine at tennis star Novak Djokovic’s very own restaurant where you can sample real Serbian food. Whether you get carried away on the buzzing streets of Belgrade, or fall in love with the tranquil riverside monasteries and scenic national parks, Serbia is sure to impress.

Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.

Comfortable shoes

You’ll find endless laneways, hillsides and towers that just have to be climbed on your Serbia holidays, so bring a reliable pair of walking shoes.

Rain jacket

There’s always a chance of rain in Serbia, especially if you’re heading on a Belgrade tour in spring. Bring a light rain jacket or a travel umbrella and stay cosy and dry.

Insect repellent

Don’t forget your insect repellent when you travel Serbia. Whether you bring a spray or a cream, make sure it’s a good quality repellent to protect yourself from mosquitoes.

Whether you use it to protect yourself from the sun or the cold, or wrap it around your shoulders when entering churches and monasteries, a scarf always comes in handy on a Serbia trip.
