Serbia is poised to be the world's top European destination. It will do it without the things tourists are trained to want, because the world is about to change its mind about travel.
Cheap flights and growing economies have created a massive populace of new tourists. The industry which funnels them into the world is based on creating inflated expectations.
Think about how much fun you'll have on your 5 day tour through Europe!
This paradigm is good at making money, but terrible at providing what we deeply crave: connection. Expectations ultimately let you down. Things are never as rosy as imagined, or as glossy as their marketing. The romance of Paris will evaporate when a local is rude to you, the "cultural experience" in Vienna will sour when you notice the only Austrians in the room are being paid, and Stonehenge won't provide the wonderment you hoped to feel because you were quickly marched around it by a person holding a mini flag.
This disappointment will lead this new populace to the same conclusion most travelers eventually reach: Travel is better without expectations. A destination is more impactful when it's allowed to define itself.
Enter Serbia: a country with a minuscule presence in the travel market. You probably know nothing about this destination. Perfect! Come without reading a single article. What a treat to open a destination like a Christmas present, with no idea what's inside that big box.
Serbia has dodged the mainstream trap because it doesn't have many marketable checkboxes. There is no Everest, no Vatican, and no Eiffel Tower. It has a subtle charm and beauty which can't be easily defined in a tourist brochure. It's simply genuine, open, and honest. What that means to you will have to be defined through direct experience.
When today's multitude of new tourists mature they will desire a deeper level of travel. Serbia is ready to provide.

Couldn't agree more! Serbia is not at all set up for tourists and that's what makes it such an experience. Plus the people are so thrilled (and surprised) that you have come to visit and so eager to show you a great time. Real people, real food, real places, real experiences = authentic travel!

So... First, the road in Montenegro, all roads are in the mountains. In my country the road construction is still a problem, so for Russian to see the roads paved through the mountains is very impressive. And in these impenetrable places there are old fortifications, which were attacked by the Turks (how did they get there and why?) 2.Hospitality of locals. Due to the accession of Montenegro to NATO our propaganda media denigrate this beautiful country and its people. It doesn't surprise me but I was surprised that for locals (and Russian locals) this topic is not worth a damn. Also I noted Serbian language with vowels almost missing, a large number of monasteries, and pretty Croatian guys who don't pay attention to girls (they say that the local ladies have a stern temper)

Travelling is something we all want to experience in our lives. Whether it be to another country or even just an out of town trip, we all want and need to get away from the daily grind. It is difficult, though, to travel seeing as it is expensive. It is great to know that anyone can travel at any time if they realize that just by walking out of your house or your drive to work is an adventure all on its own. We may not always have the luxury to travel to different places and destinations, but we can still experience the feeling of travelling in our daily lives.
