Bela Palanka

The Alps in South Serbia

Alpi na jugu SrbijeBela Palanka is located at the foot of Suva and Stara Planina at an altitude of 394 meters. In Roman times, it was a link between the East and the West, on Via Militaris, the current Corridor 10. For centuries, is has been the place where shortest route between Europe and the Middle East passes.

Thus, the present day catering and tourism continued the tradition of road taverns from the ancient times and the medieval period. The ideal temperate continental climate and the surroundings of the national park Suva and Stara Planina provide the conditions for hunting, fishing, paragliding, hiking, kayaking, hiking and horseback riding in the countryside, but also many opportunities for youth tourism and “backpackers”.
