Balkans is the travel destination that is becoming more and more popular year by year. Perhaps, every traveler has its own favorite countries of the region, however, we cannot avoid telling about the main state of this semi-island Serbia.

Going to Serbia, dispose yourself to the fact that there almost everybody is crazy, and it is going to say not about any epidemics or quarantine but, vice versa, they cheer for sport and healthy lifestyle. Being incredibly emotional, Serbians pull no punches watching football or handball match. Absolutely all the citizens of Serbia are passionate about some competitions that is why if one knows about the sport at least a bit, he will, definitely, find the topic for the conversation. The main thing is not to get to Belgrade streets in the days of the main football derby of the capital when Red Star Belgrade meets Partizan Belgrade as the city is divided into two parts and fights almost always go beyond the limits of the stadium.

Serbians love boasting about the existence of immediately two flags. Official one differs from national flag with the presence of crest. By the way, it was accepted in 2004 even though the verily concept had been created in the 19-th century.

In spite of the good production of wines and strong alcohol beverages, among which there is prune brandy that features, Serbians hardly could be called as the drinking nations as even adult men may extend one wineglass during the whole evening. Nevertheless, it does not distort their attention from fun and open expression of their emotions what leads to opinion existing among visitants that they are surrounded only by drunk people.

Yet, coffee is the most popular beverage in this country. It is hard to count how many cups of exhilarating and aromatic coffee in average is drunk by one Serbia per one day. It is right, perhaps, to say that this beverage is brewed on any convenient occasion while people are smoking, eating Turkish paste, after the meal, during the break, etc. What is interesting, tea is not what could be compared in popularity because it is seen exclusively as the medical product during the flu. 6ca42272502e41d2f5a4a768f8fb3431_o_nas-1920-c-90.png

Work, service, and private life should develop in frames of merak, otherwise it is not life but torture. By the way, because of that in Serbian shops and offices there is a kind of siesta widespread as well as very short working day as the labor for locals is, certainly, not a punishment, however, by far not the most important thing in life.

It is hard to say whom to blame if it the same merak or beautiful nature surrounding citizens and village inhabitants or well-balanced nutrition, however, Serbians is truly beautiful nations. Local men are rather high and well-groomed, the age of women is hard to be guessed, especially when one looks at them from the back.
