The 3 Cities of Serbia Everyone Should Visit

Although a fairly underrated country, Serbia has many beautiful sites, natural attractions and cities that are definitely worth the visit. Last year, during our Balkan trip, we visited three amazing cities of which I want to tell you all about! So without further ado, here are the 3 cities in Serbia which everyone must visit!

1 SUBOTICA

The multiethnic city of Subotica is the second largest urban center in Vojvodina, and the fifth largest city in the country. Its beauty is mostly made up of Art Nouveau-style buildings, recognizable by their colorful facades and detailed doors and windows. In all honesty, this is the city I loved the most of the three, exactly because of this architectural style. The inviting park in front of the stunning City Hall, the Modern Art Gallery called the Reichle building, the Town Library and the impressive Great Church are all must-sees if you happen to be in Subotica!

2. NOVI SAD

The second largest city of Serbia is Novi Sad, lying on the banks of the grand Danube River, which was founded at the end of the 17th century. As we were in a hurry and only had 2 hours to explore the city, we literally rushed through its main squares, to reach the number 1 tourist attraction of the city, Petrovaradin Fortress, protecting the city from atop a hill. Nevertheless, we tried to take a few snapshots in the city as well, all the while trying to keep up with our fast-paced group. Oh, and did I tell you the fortress is home to the infamous Exit Festival?

3. BELGRADE

Belgrade, also known as the “White City”, is the largest municipality and the capital of Serbia, located at the confluence of the Sava and Danube Rivers. It attracts tourists mostly through its active nightlife and budget-friendly prices for those looking for an awesome night on the town (prices compared to Western European countries). Besides the numerous clubs, bars, restaurants and cafes, Belgrade also boasts a myriad of tourist attractions, ranging from historical monuments – like its fortress, to lush parks – like Karadorde’s Park, and specialty museums – the Nikolai Tesla Museum. As we had merely a day to explore the city, we mostly wandered around the city’s streets and visited the fortress and the park.

  • I love love Serbia. Beograd captured my heart. I also loved Novi Sad. Subotica looks amazing. Would love to go when I return.

    • Thank you for your comment! 🙂 You should really visit Subotica, it’s somewhat under the radar but very beautiful! I also loved Belgrade and Novi Sad as well!

  • I was in Novi Sad and Belgrade in February – amazing places!

  • Novi Sad is soooo pretty 😮 I need to visit Serbia soon, can’t believe I’ve never been. I was actually considering a quick weekend trip to Serbia one day (especially since Exit Festival looks very inviting every year, haha)

    • I know, it’s a neighboring country of mine, and still I had to wait 24 years to visit, crazy! I think it’s definitely worth it 🙂
