Welcome address of Gordana Plamenac, Director of the National Tourism Organization of Serbia

The National Tourism Organization of Serbia is pleased to welcome the organizers, exhibitors and guests to the 21st edition of OTDYKH International tourism exhibition, a significant event in the international tourism market. Proving the importance of the event for our country, the National Tourist Organization of Serbia takes part in OTDYKH every year, and in 2015 Serbia has become a Partner Country of the show.

OTDYKH International Russian Travel Market is a great chance for our country to show the tourism opportunities of Serbia in all their diversity. We believe the people of Russia have yet to discover Serbia properly. And for many of them Serbia may become one of the favourite holiday destinations. Serbia amazes the guests infinitely. It is a country with a huge tourism potential — delicious Serbian cuisine, rich in old traditions and ancient recipes; colouring Serbian towns and villages; unique natural attractions — majestic mountains, green forests, deep rivers and picturesque lakes; rich cultural and historical heritage, including ancient Orthodox churches and monasteries, many of them have been included on the UNESCO world cultural heritage list. The cities of Belgrade and Novi Sad will undoubtedly impress the visitors with beautiful architecture, and the Serbian baths — mountain and spa resorts can treat almost any disease. And, of course, the friendliness and hospitality of the local people make the holidays of each Serbia’s guest warm and joyful.

The National Tourism Organization of Serbia wishes the guests and exhibitors of OTDYKH-2015 much success and welcomes all to visit Serbia!
