After the battle, the Turkish Commander Hushid-pasha ordered his soldiers to skin a head of every fallen Serbian soldier, fill it with hay, send it to the Sultan of Stambol (Istanbul) and stack the skulls into a tower which would serve as a permanent warning to the Serbian people. Of the total 852 skulls that were used to build the tower, 58 are preserved today.

Devil’s Town is a natural monument in southern Serbia, known to many as one of the 77 candidates for natural world wonders. When it entered the competition, two years ago, Devil’s Town was the most successful European candidate in its category (rock formations) and, even more importantly, it ran the race until the very final vote, which ended in the summer of 2010. This period also marked the beginning of activities aimed at the nomination of this site for the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Back in the past, people were unable to account for the origins of Devil’s Town, so many legends were told on the subject. One of the legends says that the earthen figures are actually remnants of churches which were devastated by devils. Only recently has Devil’s Town become a tourist attraction, the only European one that can compete with the much more celebrated Garden of the Gods in the USA.
Since 1959, Devil’s Town has been under state protection. In 1995, by a decree of the Serbian government, it was proclaimed a natural asset of outstanding significance. During the campaign for Seven Natural World Wonders, much work was completed on the site – a 9km-long artery, a car park and a viewpoint were built, the path was illuminated, water was supplied and a maintenance service was organized with accompanying facilities. The decorative illumination enables nightly tours of the site, which is visited by more than 50,000 guests annually.

Viminacium, where the Mlava flows into the Danube, we find one of the most important Roman towns and military encampments from the period from the 1st to the 6th century. Viminacium was often chosen as a mustering point for troops and a starting point in many a military campaign. The exceptional finds made in the necropoles around the town confirm the belief that its citizens were very wealthy, and frescoes found in the crypts represent the peak of late classical period art.

The Canyon offers something for any nature-lover which is why Uvac River Canyon is one of Serbia’s top tourist destinations.
Serbia is the capital of untouched nature, healthy food – fruits and vegetables, but also the cradle of wine, grape growing and winemaking.

Across an area 50 km long and 10 km wide, in the FruŠka Gora hills in the district of Srem, there are 16 Serbian Orthodox monasteries built in the late Middle Ages. Most of the monasteries were built under the influence of the Morava and Raška schools of architecture. The general area of Fruška Gora has been rich in religious sites since ancient times, and during the 16th and 17th centuries, 35 monasteries recorded here.
Ovčar and Kablar gorge
Within a narrow geographical region, in the Zapadna Morava river gorge, lies a large group of monasteries, named “Serbian Holy Mountain”. Most of the monasteries were built during the period of Turkish rule, when they had great historical, cultural and artistic value. The original number of monasteries is unknown, but today there are ten.
Monasteries of Raška district – Valley of the Kings
The journey through the Valley of the Kings begins at Kraljevo, one of the major cities of central Serbia. The Ziča monastery is considered the “mother of all churches”, with its characteristic red façade. It is the place where its benefactor, Stefan Prvovenčani (’the First-Crowned’) was crowned the first Serbian king of the Nemanjić dynasty. Legend tells that six more kings were crowned here and that for each a door were opened and then bricked up, hence the poetic name, Ziča of the Seven Doors. This tour also includes monasteries: Studenica, Djurdjevi Stupovi, Sopoćani and Gradac.
Farmsteads (salasi) are found in all three districts of Vojvodina: Bačka, Banat and Srem. Some farmsteads are over 200 years old and are true ethnic museums. While the classic way of life of Vojvodina has been preserved on some farmsteads, many of them have been refurbished and adapted to meet the needs of modern life, with swimming pools, sports courts and fishing ponds amongst other recreational facilities. The larger farmsteads also have stables, mini zoos, ethnic museums and collections. They are not only ideal for a peaceful yet active holiday, but also for enjoying excellent cuisine and first class local wines and rakija to the cheerful sound of the tamburica.
