Following Thomas Berry’s saying “The greater the diversity, the greater the perfection” we are excited and proud to offer you to get to know the province of Vojvodina with us.  On this tour, you will have the opportunity to both get comfortably tucked into the tranquillity and serene scenery of the flat Pannonian Plain and the devoted silence of quiet monasteries, as well as to be mind-awaken by the richness of the area’s historical significance. Of course, a bit earthlier pleasures, when in this area, must also not be avoided - Bermet, a traditional type of wine, preserved and revived to its former glory, will bring both your mind and your body into balance during this exploration.  If variety is indeed the spice of life, Vojvodina – with its wide diversity of languages, ethnic groups, religions, cultures, and traditions will surely contribute to your traveling experiences in more ways than you could have expected.
