Today we present one interesting travel guide about Serbia written by Laurence Mitchell.
Laurence Mitchell is a British travel writer and photographer. He first visited Serbia back in the 70s when hitch-hiking through the former Yugoslavia. Laurence writes for Bradt Travel Guides, currently working on the update for the 4th edition.
Serbia travel guide includes 16pp colour photos and 27 maps, it’s published in July 2010 (3rd edition).
Perhaps the greatest attraction of all, considering the long years of isolation, is the welcome the visitor can expect to receive,’ writes Serbia author Laurence Mitchell. With this guide to one of southeast Europe’s most exciting destinations Laurence Mitchell introduces travelers not only to rural monasteries and tranquil national parks but also to hip nightclubs and swinging summer festivals. This fully revised third edition provides fresh information to business visitors, adventure travelers and those with an interest in art, history or wildlife. As a prime destination for winter sports, mountain resorts and a range of health spas in spectacular settings are covered. Also included is information on the newly independent state of Kosovo. New to tourism, Serbia is determined to show the world all its attributes: delicious food, beautiful countryside, low prices, safe travel and excellent city nightlife. The scars of war have faded and visitors can certainly expect a warm welcome. Raise a glass of belo vino and toast Serbia’s reawakening.
