|Blueberry Days at Mt. Kopaonik|
Nature and mountain lovers will have an opportunity to visit the “Blueberry Days” event at Mt. Kopaonik on July 28-30, organised for the second consecutive year by MK Mountain Resort, Kopaonik National Park, “Raška“ Tourism and Sports Organisation and the Tourist Organisation of the Municipality of Brus.
This year, the event will also be supported by the Sector for Agriculture Development of the Embassy of Holland in Serbia.
During the “Blueberry Days” event, which is receiving a traditional character, visitors will be presented with blueberry products of local exhibitors, and the quality of the products will be evaluated by an expert selection jury in several categories: non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages, jellies, jams and preserves made of blueberries. On the final day, cultural artistic companies from Raška and Brus will entertain guests at the central square, while a pageant for the Blueberry Queen will be organised in the Grand Hotel on the same evening.
Events such as this one contribute to more visits to Mt. Kopaonik and therefore, wishing to meet needs of guests, hotels have offered other additional sports and recreational activities.
- This summer, in addition to the visit to the “Blueberry Days” event, we suggest to guests taking some of outdoor activities within the Active Holiday package. The offer includes a horseback riding school, paragliding, Quadro or mountain bike off-road rides down Mt. Kopaonik slopes.
For children between 10 and 14, a summer camp of English and French language is organised, while for the youngest we have a tennis and basketball school during the summer – explains Nikola Avram, General Manager of MK Mountain Resort.
A high level of service and significantly lower prices compared to winter season are only some of the reasons why the most beautiful Serbian mountain should be visited during summer as well.
Therefore, it is not surprising that people increasingly change their habits and spend their summer holiday on the mountain, away from everyday life, instead of at the seaside.
