Belgrade, which is the national capital, is situated 160 miles (257 kilometers) northwest of Pirot.
Remember, limiting yourself to just one place usually only offers a narrow glimpse into the wider qualities of a region. So allow time to visit Serbia's many sights and attractions. You may also wish to check out Knjazevac, 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the southeast, and Niska Banja 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the east.
Stimulate your mind at Serbia's fascinating history museums, art galleries and art museums.
If the ideal holiday for you and your family includes being outside and rugging up against the cold weather, Serbia will be perfect. Skiing is popular here. Snow shoeing is also widely enjoyed by locals and tourists.
Sometimes, a region's true spirit can be found in the flavors and aromas of its kitchens. Cabbage and also onion are often included as components in dishes here. Popular dishes include karadordeva (stuffed veal) and pecenje na raznju (spit-roasted meat), but there are many other interesting dishes for foodies. Those who would like to try something else, can try orascine (walnut pastry), a great way to complete your Serbia culinary experience. For those who enjoy a good brew, try out Ruski Kvas. It is a popular drink in Serbia. Try a vrnjci (sparkling water), an non-alcoholic Serbia beverage that is very common in Serbia.
When it is time to depart Pirot, pack up your camera and mementos, spend your last of your Serbian dinars on last-minute souvenirs, and bid a fond Doviđenja (farewell) to this unique holiday spot.
