In the summer of 2019, I had the opportunity to visit Belgrade, the capital city of Serbia. I found the city to be in a state of disrepair, lacking appealing destinations for both locals and tourists to enjoy. Based on my personal experience, I cannot recommend Serbia as a travel destination.

Regrettably, corruption permeates various industries in Belgrade, and it became evident from the beginning of my visit. One prevalent issue was the existence of “fake taxis,” which are exceedingly difficult for tourists to recognize. Unfortunately, I fell victim to one of these scams during my trip – and was assaulted and nearly robbed.
