Lebanon Traveler - - CONTENTS -

SER­BIA

Ser­bia is a Euro­pean gem hidden in the beau­ti­ful Balkans. The vi­brant cap­i­tal, Bel­grade, is a hip and funky city with cute cafés, shops, lots of graf­fiti and a hap­pen­ing nightlife. The lo­cals are es­pe­cially wel­com­ing. To ex­plore the nat­u­ral beauty of the coun­try, head to the west and dis­cover Uz­ice, Uvac and Tara Na­tional Park. You can climb in­cred­i­ble moun­tains, take boat rides, swim in beau­ti­ful lakes and en­joy noth­ing but lush, green forests around you. Flight time to Bel­grade: 2 hours 45 min­utes (di­rect flights on Air Ser­bia) Where to eat tra­di­tional food in the cap­i­tal: Lorenzo & Kakalamba or Kale­meg­dan­ska Terasa Where to sleep: Square Nine Ho­tel Bel­grade (luxury) or Ark­abarka Float­ing Apart­ments on the Danube (budget)

AR­ME­NIA

A coun­try best known for its his­tory, cul­ture, and breath­tak­ing na­ture, Ar­me­nia should be at the top of your “off the beaten track” bucket list. The best way to ex­plore this undis­cov­ered beauty is to take a road trip through the stun­ning moun­tains and val­leys. Don’t miss the lively cap­i­tal of Yere­van, Etch­mi­adzin – the old­est cathe­dral in the world, the pa­gan tem­ple of Garni, Lake Se­van – one of the largest fresh­wa­ter high-alti­tude lakes in Eura­sia, and Jer­muk, fa­mous for its hot springs and well­ness re­sorts. What’s more, Le­banese cit­i­zens can grab their visa upon ar­rival. Flight time to Yere­van: 2 hours (di­rect flights on MEA or Ar­me­nia Air­com­pany) Where to eat tra­di­tional food in the cap­i­tal: Old Eri­van or Dol­mama Where to sleep: Ar­me­nia Mar­riott Ho­tel Yere­van (luxury) or My Ho­tel Yere­van (budget)
