Camping remains wildly popular all over Europe, but even the most intrepid of outdoor sleepers are a little reticent to pitch their tent up in Serbia. Why? Assumptions built up from bad press in the ’90s would be the most likely culprit, but the time has come for it to change. These are the best camping areas in Serbia.
The western Serbian mountain of Zlatibor is home to quite a few official campsites, each offering an assortment of conveniences for your prospective camper. The principal campsite is beautifully hidden among the pine woods of the park, together with 60 spaces for tents and cyclists of all shapes and sizes. Avid fans of sitting by lakes and waiting for fish to bite will be enraptured by Ribničko jezero. Also if there is a better mix than camping and fishing, then we just aren’t aware of it.
On the other side of the country to Zlatibor is located Bela Crkva, a city and municipality on the boundary with Romania. The city has a decidedly multi-ethnic history, but the majority of people understand it for the neighboring lakes and campsites. The water is clean and exceptionally popular with fishermen and swimmers alike, while the plains around them are ready and waiting for prospective campers to stop and pitch up.
We’ve covered the west and the east, but what about the south? Vranje gets short shrift from most in Serbia, especially when it has to do with its own reputation for lazy builders. The ‘Enigma’ mini camp is located a little bit outside the city, and the two kilometres may also be a thousand miles. The campsite is highlighted by swimming areas, and is a renowned lazing spot for cyclists and bikers alike. The camp is well equipped with water and electricity plug-ins for all kinds of vehicles, showers and many other things. It also has a room for hanging out with TV and Wi-Fi which you can use for watching movies online, listening to music or even online betting for Euroleague.
Apatin might be best known for its wildly cheap beer that’s brewed there, but the small town on the border with Croatia is surrounded by no small amount of gorgeous nature also. The campsite in town is run by a multi-lingual group of tourism experts, making it a place that definitely gets the’for tourists, by tourists‘ descriptor. The team makes no secret of its adoration for nature, doing everything in their power to keep Apatin’s environment as unspoilt as possible.
There are various reasons to camp, however, the immersion in character is possibly the number one thing that disturbs people to sleep out under the stars (well, a roofing of thin cloth ). Perućac provides everything in this regard. The Vrelo waterfall is nearby, the magnificent ending of among Europe’s shortest rivers, as is the most highly effective Drina river along with the eponymous lake. Bajina Bašta along with the iconic House on the Drina are only a brief ride away.
