Vogue: Belgrade, one of most culturally vibrant cities in Europe

The influential American magazine, Vogue has published a list of tourist destinations in the Balkans that are lesser known but a must see next year. The list includes Belgrade which Vogue describes as “one of the most culturally vibrant cities in all of Europe.

Vogue also mentions beautiful seaside towns and old streets in Croatia and Montenegro, adding that “the Balkans region is the home to a number of culturally vibrant and naturally impressive countries where you won’t run into troves of tourists”. 

The capital city of Serbia is also described as a city where “past and present merge into a beautifully bold, chaotically contemplative sprawl”. Vogue goes on to say that there are over 200 floating bars, clubs, and restaurants in Belgrade, as well as “the old world Dorćol and the trendy Savamala, home to Belgrade’s newest art galleries and cultural centers”.

Local green markets sell fresh delicatessen while the magazine recommends trying barbecue specialties, local wines and rakija.

Other Balkan destinations on Vogue’s list include Prizren, Herzegovina, Ohrid, Transylvania in Romania and the Albanian coastal town of Himara.
