Lonely Planet, a large Australian travel guide book publisher, grades Serbia among ten top destinations the tourists should visit next year.
Serbia is in the sixth place, behind, Indonesia, Hungary, India, Buffalo in the US and Azerbaijan.
“What’s this? An authentic, characterful European country, rewarding slow exploration and barely discovered by travellers? Serbia can’t even be said to have been hiding away – its capital, Belgrade, has for centuries been one of the continent’s great crossroads. Today the city has laid-back cafe culture by day and budget-friendly partying by the Danube by night. And once you get out of Belgrade, you’ll have most of the country’s delights to yourself. Outdoor adventures, spas and wineries, ancient monasteries and monolithic memorials from the Yugoslav era await,” Lonely Planet wrote.
As of 2011, the company had sold 120 million books since inception, and by early 2014, it had sold around 11 million units of its travel apps.
