Sports and outdoor activities
Serbia’s countryside is beautiful, varied and never more than a short bus ride away. In the summer, hike or walk in the Fruška Gora National Park (npfruskagora.co.rs); in winter hit the ski slopes with Balkan daredevils at Kopaonik National Park (eng.infokop.net). The locals love their football, and a derby between Belgrade’s Red Star (crvenazvezdafk.com) and FK Partizan (partizan.rs) is invariably fiery, and frequently violent (outside the ground). For something more sedate, head to Novi Sad’s FK Vojvodina (fkvojvodina.com). Basketball, too, is a major spectator sport, with both Red Star (kkcrvenazvezda.rs) and Partizan (kkpartizan.rs) the dominant forces.
