When a person considers tourist destinations to spend their vacations, Yugoslavia is not usually at the top of the list. This war-torn country has experienced ugly foreign occupations and great political instability. Yugoslavia was invaded and divided during World War II. Thousands of people were killed. On February 4, 2003, Yugoslavia was dissolved into two countries.
The result was the formation of Serbia and Montenegro. Despite great destruction, Serbia and Montenegro offer the traveler a wonderful vacation. Belgrade is the capital of Serbia and is one of the oldest cities in Europe, dating back more than 7,000 years. A good starting point for a visitor is the Stari Grad. This is the oldest part of Belgrade and you can find a large number of museums .
Each one of them offers the visitor a great variety of archaeological and art samples. Belgrade is also home to the Kalemegdan Citadel . Within this large park is the Belgrade Fortress, which dates back to Roman times. Most of it was rebuilt in the 17th century.
Budva is another place that you should not miss during your holidays. The original city collapsed in 1979 during an earthquake. Little by little it was rebuilt as a tourist attraction and today it is one of the best beach resorts in Montenegro. One of the favorite destinations in Budva is Sveti Stefan . There was a time when Sveti Stefan was a fishing village. Today, this island town is an isolated tourist destination.
