New ‘Youth Travel and Serbia’ report | WYSTC 2016 workshops

Free Report: Youth Travel and Serbia

New WYSE research: Youth Travel and Serbia

International youth travel is a very important market for Serbia and, in particular, the city of Belgrade. Lonely Planet ranked Belgrade fifth in its ‘Top ten best places to be in 2015’ list and the number of hostels in Belgrade has increased dramatically in the last few years, reflecting the rapid growth in youth tourism demand.

WYSE Travel Confederation has published Youth Travel and Serbia, a report outlining the key characteristics of the in-and outbound youth travel markets for Serbia and the potential that exists to strengthen this up-and-coming youth travel destination.
