Review: Single Room at Apartmani Amaro Novi Sad

Review: Single Room at Apartmani Amaro in Novi Sad

One thing I noticed when I started looking for accommodation to stay in Novi Sad is that the rate is slightly higher than most places in Serbia, even the capital city in Belgrade. I wasn't picky when it came to accommodation, so I booked a single room at Apartmani Amaro in Novi Sad, Serbia.

Apartmani Amaro is the second accommodation that I booked through Agoda in Serbia after Apartmani Vasic in Banja Koviljaca. But I found booking Apartmani Amaro in Novi Sad more straightforward than the latter, as Apartmani Amaro allowed us to proceed with the online payment through Agoda.

In this post, I'm going to share a review of my experience when I stayed in the single room at Apartmani Amaro in Novi Sad on New Year's Eve. I got connected with a girl in Novi Sad through Couchsurfing who kinda gave me some hope to have someone to spend the New Year's Eve together, but she kinda ditched me so I ended up doing nothing in my room to welcome 2022 there.

So, how was my experience staying at Apartmani Amaro in Novi Sad? Here we go!

Kafana Pavle Korcagin Belgrade

Kafana Pavle Korcagin – The Unique & Authentic Serbian Tavern in Belgrade

Traveling around Serbia isn't complete without having a sip of rakija and enjoying the authentic Serbian delicacy in the nearest kafana. When you visit Serbia, there's a chance that you'll get to visit the capital city in Belgrade. And while there are many restaurants in Belgrade, visiting Belgrade isn't complete without going to a kafana there. And in this post, I'm going to share a unique experience when I had a blast at Kafana Pavle Korcagin in Belgrade.

I found the information about Kafana Pavle Korcagin just a few months before my trip to Serbia. At the time, I was already a member of the group “Expats in Belgrade” on Facebook, and there was this member who shared a controversial post when he posted a link to the Youtube video about what he referred to as a communist pro-Serbian kafana in Belgrade.

As someone who has a particular interest in Yugoslavia's history in general, I decided to take a look and I was surprised by the existence of this tavern to the point that I made it to the top of my bucket list once I got to Belgrade.

Apartmani Vasic, Banja Koviljaca.

Apartmani Vasic – Where to Stay in Banja Koviljaca, Serbia

Banja Koviljaca is one of the most famous spa towns in Serbia, which I've included on the list of must-visit places in Serbia the other day. Situated at the foothill of Mt. Gucevo, you could enjoy some relaxing and spa time as if you were one of the members of the royal dynasty Karadjordjevic in the early 1900s.

Apart from Banja Koviljaca, there are also a few spa towns in Serbia such as Vrnjacka Banja, Bukovicka Banja, or Niska Banja. However, since I spent a few days traveling around Loznica and I stayed at the accommodation located in Banja Koviljaca, this time I'm going to write a review about my experience of staying at Apartmani Vasic when I was there.

Located at Marsala Tita, there are plenty of accommodations in the area around Banja Koviljaca. Marsala Tita itself is the main road that connects West Serbia with Bosnia. As the town is closer to Tuzla in Bosnia, it is also a great spot to stop if you travel from any cities in Bosnia like Sarajevo to Belgrade. So, how was my stay at Apartmani Vasic when I booked it as accommodation during my stay in Banja Koviljaca?

27 Must-Visit Ex-Yugoslavia Destinations in the Balkans

27 Must-Visit Ex-Yugoslavia Destinations in the Balkans

The Balkans are a fascinating region to explore in Europe due to its beauty as well as turbulent history. When we talk about the Balkans area, if you're a history buff like I am, it is hard to ignore the most recent conflict in the region, especially in ex-Yugoslavia countries, throughout the 1990s.

One of the most diverse regions in Europe, there was a price to pay for its diversity that ended with wars, bombings, and genocide. I used to date a Balkan guy in my early 20s, and I remember one thing he said about the region: “Yugoslavia. We're now basically split into seven countries who are similar in one way, but very different in the other ways to the point that we just end up hating each other.”

So in this post, in collaboration with other fellow travel bloggers, we're going to give you a glimpse of each ex-Yugoslavia destination you must visit on your trip to the Balkans. Because despite all the things that occurred in the region in the past, today you can learn a lot from what happened. And more importantly, you can now explore the beauty of each country peacefully.
