Capital of Serbia

Belgrade is the capital of the southeast European country of Serbia. Its most significant landmark is the Beogradska Tvrđava, an imposing fortress at the confluence of the Danube and the Sava rivers. The fort is a testament to the city’s strategic importance to the Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, Serbian and Austrian empires, and it's now the site of several museums as well as Kalemegdan, a vast park.
While Belgrade’s rich history makes itself reminded throughout the city, most notably in the old Belgrade Fortress, Belgrade features an abundance of cultural attractions and a wide range of events that draw visitors from across Europe.As one of Europe’s oldest cities, located at the crossroads of the East and West, the capital of Serbia is an incredibly rich mosaic of different cultures, influences and styles with a mysterious and exotic atmosphere.European but with oriental influences, Belgrade is a great weekend break, with tons of interesting sights and attractions, splendid architecture, a fast-paced nightlife, great and affordable shopping, as well as a thriving cultural scene.

Town in Republic of Srpska (BIH)

 Vlasenica area, with its geographical position, rich flora and fauna and preserved environment, is suitable for the development of various types of tourism – transit, winter-mountain, rural, hunting and fishing, health. The special features of this area are tall and dense forests. There are 0.70 hectares of forest area per inhabitant (European average is 0.34). These forests are also valuable for the composition and type of trees. In addition to the centuries-old beech trees, fir, maple trees, pine trees and spruce, there are also examples of serbian spruce here. The abundance of forest fruits, especially various types of mushrooms (edible bolete, morel, chanterelle, rose finch, phentermine, etc.) and the distribution of various game (deer, wild boar, bear, wolf, fox, rabbit etc.), and the relative wealth of the fish fund in Studeni and ZeleniJadar, Tišča and Drinjača (trout, gilt, grayling, barbell, sneep, minnow, etc.) also motivate certain categories of tourists to come to this region.The opportunity for the development of winter tourism is especially provided by the Javor Mountain where, since 1984, there is a winter sports and recreation center “Igrišta”. It is located at the altitude of 1,019 meters, only seven kilometers away from the city, on the main road through which the lines of tourists pass in the winter, whose final destinations are the Olympic mountains of Jahorina and Bjelašnica, about 100 kilometers from Vlasenica. Among the most beautiful natural ambient of this region is the mountain plateau Ružnavoda (about 1,130 m above sea level), which extends along the road to Han Pijesak, today the attractive treasure of citizens of Vlasenica, and because of dense forests (mostly coniferous) green meadows and planks and cold clean water has the characteristics of a real aerial spa. There is also a high concentration of the ozone in the air in this region.
