Recent fire broke out in a country, and that is our old friend in China-the Serbian old iron, aka”the iron plug”. On March 16th, Serbian President Wu Qiqi cried for help in China over the new crown epidemic. On March 17, the first batch of Chinese relief supplies arrived in Serbia. In history, the friendship between China and Serbia has been battered. Just rush to this friendship, you must find opportunities to make up for the lack of travel!
The words of the lungs of netizens:
So, is Serbia worth playing? Is it expensive? Is the scenery good? See ↓
1. It is visa-free for China. It is the first European country to exempt visas from China in the true sense.
2. Local prices are touching. According to people familiar with the matter, a local large pizza costs 8 yuan, a pound of cherry 8 yuan, a cup of coffee 6 yuan, and a meal for two people is only 50 yuan per capita.
3. It is very friendly to Chinese people. This is from Serbia or Yugoslavia. Friendships that have been baptized in war can stand the test. Now Serbians will greet them warmly when they encounter Chinese.
4. It’s small and few people. Friends who have experienced the Great Wall of China ’s National Day and Sanya during the Spring Festival all know it … Hurry up while there are not many people.
5. It has both human and natural scenery. Serbia has a rich historical heritage. As a place where historical soldiers must fight, there are prehistoric archaeological sites, ancient Roman cultural sites, and medieval monasteries with world-class art treasures. Of course, it also has four distinct seasons and beautiful natural scenery. The Zlatibor Mountains and Tara National Park are great places for summer and summer skiing. In addition, the capital Belgrade is known as the nightlife capital, and Novi Sad is the venue of the EXIT Music Festival, one of the world’s top five music festivals.

Serbia has no domestic flights, so domestic traffic is mainly through trains, buses, minibuses and self-driving to fulfill. Train is more comfortable. Bus is faster than trains, but it is still slow due to almost no highways.

Of course, the highest degree of freedom is self-driving .
Self-driving: Same as domestic left rudder driving , the vehicle is driving to the right, driving in Serbia with a Chinese driver ’s license requires the preparation of certified English Translation , EU driver’s license and international driver’s license can be used directly. Serbia’s highways are in general condition. There are many mountain roads and trails in the southwest. If you go to the southwest, you must pay attention to speed limits and driving safety.
