Baroque cities and towns, glorious monasteries, hill walks. BH

Jump to last reply

At a quarter of Austrian prices you can enjoy fine old towns, cities and monasteries, or go walking in powerful forest country where there are bears and wolves on the peaks. All this is in Serbia, which gives everybody a warm welcome, whether we bombed them or no. It used to be hard to plan, but I am writing this to tell you that this month there is a new book, the first ever travel guide to Europe, as good as a Fodors guide. It is Laurence Mitchell, Serbia: the Bradt Travel Guide, ISBN 1 84162 1188, published in the USA at 14 dollars 93 cents through Amazon and in Britain at 13 pounds 99 pence by Bradt Travel Guides. More on www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ tg/detail/-/1841621188?v=glance/.

I shall return there myself on 22 June, to take some special trains steam-hauled north to visit two monasteries, and beside the Bosnia frontier to take the narrow-gauge mountain railway with old cars and between old stations. If it is running I shall add President Tito’s presidential train.

See you ?
