Summer is finally here! And that means only one thing – long summer nights under a stary sky with your loved one, fragrant mornings with the smell of your favourite coffee and Prima sticks, as well as planning all the activities that we didn’t have the time to do. The borders are slowly opening and foreign travellers are once again allowed to enter, but in case traveling to a distant country isn’t on your bucket list, we have some suggestions for your summer! Lately, rural tourism is becoming increasingly popular and ethno villages offer peaceful and relaxing environments, especially for those who live in larger cities. Local residents are investing more in renovation and altering of their countryside homes, so they can offer an authentic vacation, a taste of village life and our culture to visitors. In the following text, we suggest ethno villages to visit in Serbia:
Ethno village Moravski konaci
This interesting village is located in Velika Plana. Going back to 19th century, all facilities showcase that era. Accommodation is arranged in a form of wooden houses.
Ethno village Vraneša

Surrounded by a coniferous forest at an altitude of 943 m, it offers views of Zlatar Lake, Zlatar mountain and Uvac. Accommodation is arranged in bungalows, giving a special charm to this ethno village.
Ethno village Stara planina
