Serbia is a destination for travelers as it’s still affordable compared to locations in Western Europe. East Serbia is a delight for background and wine buffs. Serbian Private Tours are recommended by us to experience the areas we have written about this, and other parts of the nation.
Just like the majority of European destinations, winter is not a fantastic time to see because it is too cold and wet. The best time to travel to Serbia is from May through October. The weather is still light in September and early October, perfect for outdoor pursuits. Keep in mind that November through April will be off-season and many areas like museums and historical websites won’t have regular working hours.
