I am the owner of Explore Serbia, the organization that promotes adventure and rural tourism in Serbia and the Balkans. When I don't plan or organize tours, you can find me hiking or biking. I am a great nature lover, especially I enjoy summer mountaineering tours above 2.000 m. My favorite mountains in the Balkans are Prokletije (Accursed Mountains). Among the first, I have started to research the possibilities of adventure tourism development in Serbia, when the idea of founding Explore Serbia was created. For more than 10 years, I have been organizing different tours which are a combination of different activities and experiences. I have graduated from the Faculty of Geography and I have a master degree in the field of tourist destination management, with working experience in travel agencies.
