Puzzle programs

We made these short trips that you can create your trip like a puzzle. Your journey can be 1 or more day, it ‘s up to you.
Depending on your preferences, accommodation can be provided either in 3 or 4-star hotels, or in private boarding houses with hosts who have star-rated accommodation and who have been trained to European standards.
All of these villages are two hours at most from Belgrade, and on average are around a 45-minute drive between them. The price of these programmes (for group about 20 people, with coach transport, guide, full board and rich itinerary), depending on the category and type of accommodation, comes to between 50 and 100 euro per day.

So, if your clients are looking for a unique experience, if they want to meet local people still living in the village environment, learn first-hand about different cultures, traditions, and old crafts and skills, and enjoy different, almost forgotten culinary specialities along the way, then they have a warm welcome in Vojvodina and the Danube region.

Roma who are lucky enough to have musical talent live very well in Vojvodina as they are highly valued and there are few weddings that do not feature Gypsy tamburica players. That is why the houses in their village are large and opulent. Tour of some Roma households if desired. Afterwards, tour of an art gallery containing works from an artists‘ colony, and a traditional house offering an opportunity to rest and dine on homemade specialities. Journey continues towards Bač and a visit to the early 14th-century fortress, the oldest fortress in Vojvodina, and the Fransciscan monastery.
