Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, is located about 110 miles (177 kilometers) north of Raska.
Of course, there is more to Serbia than just Raska, so be sure to explore the region's attractions. Bogutovac, lays 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south, while Vrnjacka Banja sits 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southwest.
Jagodina, is another good spot to discover. It is around 55 miles (89 kilometers) from Raska and offers a wide range of things to see and do, including Jagodina Go-Karting Center, Jagodina Cultural Center and Aqua Park. Wax Museum and Djurdjevo Brdo Park are also good spots for a visit before returning to Raska.
Make the effort to really understand Serbia by learning a little about its past. An enjoyable place to begin is with a visit to the area's fine old ruins.
Tapping into local knowledge can be an extremely rewarding way for visitors to familiarise themselves a new place and its people. So consider singing up for one of the city walking tours.
The food enjoyed by locals is an integral part of any culture and an excellent way to get to know a place. Amongst the many ingredients frequently used in this part of the world are cabbage and onion. Karadordeva (stuffed veal) and pecenje na raznju (spit-roasted meat) are popular with both visitors and residents alike. Once the main course has settled sample the mouthwatering orascine (walnut pastry). If exploring the wonderful world of beer is your thing, be sure to try Ruski Kvas while you are here. This is one of the region's best beers. If you are looking for something non-alcoholic, vrnjci (sparkling water) is a great option.
All good things come to an end, but be rest assured, when you have to leave Raska, you'll still have many memories, photos and keepsakes to take home.
