BBC Travel’s Article: Serbia’s seductive charms

January 23rd, 2013 by admin

A new slideshow article about Serbia by Tamara Sheward has been published on BBC Travel. Titled “Serbia’s seductive charms” the slideshow contains images of some specific images of Serbia, such as the Guča festival, Belgrade nightlife, the ski resort of Kopaonik as well as some not so widely known places such as Mokra Gora, Vrnjačka Banja, Fruška Gora and Novi Pazar.

The article describes the Guča festival as the wildest music festival on Earth and mentions an interesting comment made by the jazz trumpeter Miles Davis, who reeled: “I didn’t know you could play trumpet that way”.

The slide on Belgrade comments on the wild nightlife and displays a gig on a Danube raft featuring the local gypsy band Amaro Del.

The beautiful mountain resort of Kopaonik is mentioned as being 3 times cheaper than the French resorts. This may not be a fact, but it is true that you will have a great time on this mountain, it has great ski slopes, great nightlife (all those Belgrade party boys and girls have to enjoy the nights here too!).

There’s much more in the article, so go over and enjoy.
