Serbia had a rough time of it in the ’90s when Yugoslavia split, and while several countries around it have seen a tourism boom in recent years, it has somehow remained on the outskirts, landlocked and imposing. Don’t fear the Cyrillic alphabet, though, because the country is welcoming and waiting to be explored by travellers. If you’re looking for somewhere a little different in Europe, here are the best hotels in Serbia, the unexplored heart of the Balkans.

Mama Shelter Belgrade

After dark, the bar hosts DJ sets and live music, but if you want an early night, the rooms are soundproofed.
