Hiking through Serbia

British adventurer Kevin Shannon is one more out of many tourists which are coming to Serbia because of trekking. He started his journey from North to South of Serbia by foot, wishing to explore our country, to document Serbian culture, mentality, gastronomy and nature.

Journey 600 kilometres long, begins in Subotica and goes through Novi Sad, Belgrade, Smederevo and Niš, and its finishes at Preševo.  This is Kevin’s second introduction to hospitality of our country. Frist time, he came in Serbia on bike, when he travelled from Turkey to England. Then, he really liked the hospitality of our people and he came for a second time to our country by foot. This travel is really slow, therefore people are noticing him, welcoming him and inviting to hang out with them.  Kevin’s plan is to come back to Serbia after few months and to start another journey but in different way: from south to north; to write a book and produce a short documentary.
