All personality tests can be reduced to two types – do you see yourself as a hedonist or an adventurer? The TrippinSrbija team offers ideas on how to spend a weekend for both types, because we firmly believe in our motto – you have no excuse, visit Serbia! And you, to which type do you belong?
· If you are an adventurer
You never have enough adrenaline, you always push your own boundaries, look for and rejoice in the challenges! You are the one who uses every free moment to be physically active, to meet and learn something new.
Hiking tour to the Saint Sava Upper Pray house
A serious hiking tour, which we warmly recommend to everyone. It is difficult, but once you’ve reached the goal, you will be proud of yourself. The legend says that this place was built at the same time as the Studenica Monastery, and that here St. Sava wrote the Studenica Typikon, and also the Life of Saint Simeon, which is considered one of the most significant works of Serbian medieval literature. Only a dozen kilometers from Studenica in the direction of Ivanjica, there is a sign board. From there, you’ll need 60 to 90 minutes of hiking to the Upper Pray house.
The younger Brother of Devil’s Town, as the TrippinSrbija team named this locality, is situated on the very south of our country, near Trgovište. The legend claims that the devil had something to do with the origin of this miracle of nature. Climb to the top and feel complete peace and quiet. If you would like the feeling of adrenaline in your stomach, it’s enough to just look at the Pčinja River and the bustle below. On the spot, see if this is really devil’s work , find out why nobody is getting married and baptized in the church at the very top of the Devil’s Stone, and be sure to cross the bridge over Pčinja and enjoy the view of this wonder of nature, from another perspective.
Kraku Lu Jordan
For real adventurers, we recommend Kraku Lu Jordan, near Kučevo. An almost uninhabited locality, overcome with shrubs and bushes, through which you have to push through to reach the top. Once, this was the center of the metallurgical industry of the Roman Empire, where gold, silver, copper, and iron ore were processed. Kraku Lu is a unique locality in the history of metallurgy in Europe. And if you ask yourself what Kraku Lu Jordan means, look for the answer in the Wallachian language!
- If you are a hedonist
You consider yourself a gourmet and tend to avoid long walks. You would like everything to be accessible to you and use every moment to do the best you can, which is – TO LIVE!
The Kur Salon and Banja Koviljača
Visit the Monte Carlo of the former Kingdom of Yugoslavia. The site of one of the first beauty pageants, and the place where the first casino in the Balkans stood. Take a walk through the park to the Kur salon, which was visited by Branislav Nušić and Žanka Stokić, and where the royal family and celebrities of the mentioned era were entertained. Feel like pre-war aristocracy in the Royal Baths! For a complete experience, visit the spa villas, each of which jealously guards its story. Find out from which villa King Peter I descended to go to the baths, about which villa “Politika” wrote in 1911, and where in Banja Koviljača a phone was ringing while the capital was still silent. If we tell you that the Villa Draga had a car for its guests at that time, it should be clear what type of guests they had and the services that were provided.
- The Wineries of Rajac
For lovers of good wine, there is no better recommendation than the pimnitzas, as the locals call them. Keep in mind that the Roman emperors used to grow vineyards here. The unique ambience and the aroma of wine in the air promise a party! Pimnitzas are settlements of wine cellars, completely separate from residential areas. Take a trip to Eastern Serbia and taste the wine in these specific settlements from the 18th and 19th centuries! For the end of the visit, we recommend an extremely unusual location – a village cemetery behind the cellars in Rajac. Monuments dating back to the 18th century are completely unusual and unique, and the historical and cultural significance has been recognised by the state, under whose protection they are.
Šid is a town you cannot miss – you will always enjoy food in Srem, and we open to you yet another gate of enjoyment in this city – the galleries of two famous Šid artists! Meet Ilija Bosilj at the Ilijanum Museum and reflect on the life of Sava Šumanović in the eponymous gallery. Remember the Girls of Šid and find out who actually posed for this picture. The world-renowned Sofia Loren has a picture painted by our Ilia Bosilij, a man who until the age of 60 was a common farmer. Allow Šid and its artists to inspire you and broaden your horizons.
Aleksandra Miladinović, Bojan Vasojević, Marjan Dragić, Rade Rogač, and Tanja Vasojević are the Traveling Five who stand behind the name TrippinSrbija. TrippinSrbija is a unique project in this region and beyond. In the era of new technologies, they are the first and for now the only domestic travel blog focused exclusively on Serbia. Famous under the motto “You have no excuse, visit Serbia” since 2016, they represent a sort of authority when it comes to domestic tourism. Under the concept “one day – once a month” they have crossed more than 11000km to date and pinned over 130 locations to their map.
The five-member team, consisting of 3 graduated political science graduates, 1 architect, and 1 construction engineer, make a perfect mixture of professions and interests that, in a unique, unusual and unprecedented way in Serbia, change and complement the tourist image of Serbia.
Their mission is to research and present regions and localities of Serbia that are unknown to most people and unifying them all in one place. This is presented on their profiles on social networks and through blogs, so that all places can draw in the well-deserved attention.
TrippinSrbija sends an open invitation to anyone who wants to promote tourism, in an original way, to get in touch with them, via social networks or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
