The data, which has been provided thanks to a survey by the Tourist Board of Serbia, shows that 1,250,493 people stayed in the country in July, which is 5 per cent higher than the levels experienced in the same period back in 2012. Of that figure, visitors from overseas represented 493,665, or 39%, of the overall amount.
From the spectacular mountains of Tara, Kopaonik and Zlatibor, to the fine rural expanses and dominating gorges which can be admired from the Danube by those enjoying unforgettable river cruises in Europe, the growing popularity of Serbia is hardly surprising. Among the many draws for visitors to the country is the wealth of lakes, with the Silver Lake on the banks of the Danube being a particular favourite.
Tourism chiefs in the country are delighted with the news, as it demonstrates that Serbia is continuing to appeal as a holiday destination for people from all over the world.
