Plan Your Heritage Tour in Serbia


Where to stay and what to use as your base for your Ancestral Tour
In most cases, we would recommend that you choose Belgrade as a base for your trip. Many areas of Serbia are accessible in one Day allowing you time to see your Families exact Church, Graveyard and Family House and local historical interests and return to Belgrade. We would like you to see numerous attractions and explore Serbian history, so when you use Belgrade as base- we can take you to any part of Serbia and return you to your hotel.

Accommodation
Belgrade has all kinds of accommodation to choose from luxury hotels, tourist apartments (vacation rentals) , hostels … Best place to stay in Belgrade is Old Town around Republic Square. In this area you can find Hotels classified from three to five-star. The prices vary according to the category of the hotel and the season. Price range for 3 star Hotel is 50 – 60 Euro per night. For 4 star Hotel price is 70 – 140 Euro per night. Price range for 5 star Hotel is around 250 Euro per night.
Tourist apartments (Vacation rentals) is also good option. Prices are per apartment (not per person) and up to 40% less than hotel rooms of an equivalent standard. The rent depends on how long you book and stay. Price range for tourist apartment (equivalent 3 star hotels) is around 30 - 50 Euros per night.
Hostels - This accommodation is economical, but usually one bathroom may be shared by several rooms. Prices are per person and range around 10 - 20 Euro per night
In smaller towns and villages we advise staying in small Inns, B&B’s and agro-tourism houses, where you can see everyday life in Serbia, and where you will have the opportunity to experience real Serbian hospitality.

What to visit
There is time in the tours to see ancestral villages and meet perhaps family. Visiting ancestral village can be one of the most memorable moments of your genealogy research. To see the house where your family once lived … to visit the church or school that your family attended … it’s something most of us want to experience at least once.
