Serbia has a lot of great food and scenery. Visit Tara National Park and The Great War Island, then chow down on ćevapi (grilled meat), gibanica (egg and cheese pie made with filo dough), paprikaš (a soup made of paprika). Belgrade Fortress and St Sava Temple are also worth a visit.

There’s a lot of entrepreneurship in Serbia as the start-up costs are low. English is widely spoken too so it’ll be easier to communicate with entrepreneurially-minded people.
