Serbia keen on attracting high-end young Indian travelers
01 Apr 2015
  • The Embassy of the Republic of Serbia, New Delhi is determined towards spreading awareness about Serbia as a destination and targeting potential high-end young travelers from the Indian market. Serbia offers a rural setup amid mountains, rivers and lakes giving travelers options for adventure sports such as skiing, river rafting, mountain biking and paragliding.

  • “We are a new destination in the Indian market and what makes us stand out, among other things, is the vibrant nightlife. We have a number of pubs, bars and cafes which are open throughout the night. Besides, round the year numerous cultural, entertainments, traditional and sporting events are held in Serbia. Thus, our target audience for promoting tourism would be the high-end younger travellers in the age group starting from early 20s, looking forward to explore newer destinations. Moreover, Serbia is affordable compared to the other European destinations,” said Vladimir Maric, Ambassador of Serbia in India.

  • Indian nations holding valid Schengen/UK and USA visas are eligible to get a visa-free entry for up to 90 days in Serbia. On the connectivity front flag carrier Air Serbia, partly owned by Etihad Airways, operates connecting flights via Abu Dhabi that reach Serbia in approximately 10 hours.

  • From the beginning of 2016, the National Tourism Organisation of Serbia will be creating its presence in the leading travel trade marts in India, added Maric. “The tourist arrival from India to Serbia is almost negligible and thus this year the Serbian Embassy in New Delhi would solely be focussing on spreading the awareness about the destination in India. We are hoping also to establish connections, for Indian boys and girls to attend famous Serbian sports camps, be it for basketball, football or tennis. Serbia is a sports loving nation. Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic has been world’s number one for some time. He and our other famous sportsperson are the best global ambassadors that we have,” he said.
