The territory of the present-day Serbia used to be the scene of historical or geographical encounters between different worlds: the Sava and the Danube, the Pannonian plain and the Balkans, Romans and Barbarians, Slavic and Hungarian tribes, the Habsburgs and the Ottomans … whether they were intentional or not, these encounters have marked the land and the people, towns and villages, shaping the ” Serbian spirit” with a wide range of manners, customs, various collective values. !
The history of Serbia has created a mixture of peoples, cultures, ideas, religions … seventeen Roman emperors had been born here; the magnificent frescoes of medieval churches are telling their Christian and Slavic history, but the faith of Muhammad had also found its followers and created a unique tradition ; the patriarchal character of its peasants had been transformed under the influence of the Enlightenment; the military uprising and the diplomatic fight of its farmers and citizens had led to the creation of a modern European state in the Balkans, before becoming the heart of Yugoslav unification.
Serbia is a mosaic of traditional and modern elements, varied landscapes, people willing often to offer you more than they really have … An abundance of flavours and folklore elements, enchanting historical sites, or festivals like Exit, Guča or Nišville, are able to seduce you. … WELCOME TO SERBIA !!!
