Situated on the mighty Danube and stretching into the Balkans, this land is one of the cradles of European civilisation. One of the earliest flowerings of community can be seen at Vin?a, where Neolithic farmers and traders exploited the Danube’s banks. We also visit castles and fortresses, discover the old town at Nis, and delve deeper into the incredibly rich history of Serbia.

This tour is a little off the beaten track, but the country’s wealth of evocative sites will ensure our days - and minds - are filled with wonder. Join us as we uncover the story of Serbia & the Balkans.
