SERBIA RIVER CRUISES

    Where we sail in Serbia

    River cruises to Serbia plot a course along the Danube river, which runs from the western border, with Croatia, to the eastern border with Romania. The pick of the port towns is Belgrade, which wears the country’s capital city badge. The waterside here’s a mixture of trendy floating bars and a huge old-school fortress, so there’s plenty to suit different palates. Elsewhere, Novi Sad definitely leans in a more traditional direction. This town’s calling card is a hilltop fortress with a network of hidden tunnels beneath it. The town centre’s on the other side of the river, and has grand Renaissance buildings and bass-pumping festival spots to its name

    Gigantic lakes and gorges

    Serbia’s natural side is showcased by Donji Milanovac – nicknamed the ‘Town of a Hundred Thousand Roses’. It’s neighbours with scenic spots like pretty Lake Djerdap, plus one of Europe’s best-cared-for Prehistoric archaeological sites. This portion of the Danube is so easy on the eye that it’s not uncommon to stop at points between port towns. One of the most popular, which looks like a scene from the Lord of the Rings, is referred to as Cruising the Iron Gates. Picture tree-tufted cliffs, huge rock sculptures and ruined Roman bridges.

    OUR RECOMMENDED SERBIA SHORE EXCURSIONS

    Serbia river cruises aren’t just about scenic waterways – the excursions cover culture, cuisine and local customs, too. Get the lowdown on Belgrade’s top tourist spots on a walking tour of the city. It’s got a fortress that’s in great condition, a palace that’s home to royalty, and restaurants that host live folk performances. Novi Sad’s surroundings include a monastery tucked away in woodland, and there are wine tours that show off Serbia’s love affair with vino. In Donji Milanovic, visitors flock to Lepenski Vir, which logs some the oldest archaeological finds in Europe among its plus points.
