At one time it was sandwiched between the Byzantine and Roman Empires and then another it was between the Ottoman Empire and Western Christendom. In modern times, it was caught between the Warsaw Pact and NATO countries and it was devastated by the Yugoslavian Civil War. It is precisely this turbulent past that led to a constant migration of a wide variety of peoples and that makes present-day Serbia such a colorful, multi-ethnic and multicultural society. This is why, on your travels through Serbia, you will hear so many moving stories about patriotism, fights for freedom and bravery. Visit the unique, prehistoric monuments, medieval churches and monasteries, which are UNESCO world heritage sites. Travel through time into the turbulent past of this special country.
