Language Print

The Serbian language is one of the standard versions of the Stokavian dialect, used primarily in Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and by Serbs everywhere. The former standard was known as Serbo-Croatian language, now split into Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian standards.

The Serbian alphabet is very consistent: one letter per sound with an insignificant number of exceptions. This phonetic principle is represented in the saying: “Write as you speak and read as it is written”, the principle used by Vuk Stefanovic Karadzic when reforming the Cyrillic spelling of Serbian in the 19th century.

Another rare feature of Serbian language is the presence of two alphabets: Cyrillic and Latin. The two alphabets are almost equivalent; the only difference is in the glyphs used. This is due to historical reasons; Serbian once being a part of the Serbo-Croat unification brought Latinic usage into Serbia.

They don’t charge handling fee for these services. In order to exchange money you are supposed to present your passport (usually in banks only). Always ask for a receipt and always count the money you received. All licensed exchange offices are properly signed (‘Menjacnica | Exchange’). Do not change money on the street! There is no foreign currency black market anymore.

Welcome to Kopaonik! Print
          People of the world have mountains "of their own", the mountains they set apart from all other mountains and make them parts of their peoples's identity. With the Greeks it is Mount Olympus. The Japanese have their Fujiyama and the Russian their Caucasus. The Mexicans are proud of their Popocatepetl, the Montenegrins of their Lovcen, and the Serbs of Kopaonik.
          Due to its diversity, Kopaonik is suitable for the development of tourism, mountain climbing, winter sports and recreation.
          An important datum for all of these acitivities is depth of the snow cover and how it lasts. On Kopaonik, on the average, the snow cover lasts between 180 and 230 days.
          Sports and recreation activities are organized on Kopaonik the whole year around, such as: sking (Alpine, Nordic and recreational), orienteering, mountaineering and free climbing, paragliding, paraskiing, snowboarding, rafting and other recreation acitivities (tennis, horse-riding and the like).
          The mountain offers its visitors, lovers of nature, enjoyment and memorable experiences.
 
UK tourists to arrive in Kopaonik Print
          The planes will leave London’s Gatwick airport headed for Niš once a week, while British holidaymakers will arrive via two agencies: Thompson and Balkan Holidays.
           Serbia’s tourist organization has spent 74,000 euros in the past two years to try and put the leading Serbian ski resort back on the map of European winter destinations.
           The decision to spend 15,000 euros advertising in Thompson Ski clearly paid off, since the number of British tourists rose by 12 percent in the first eight months this year, to 10,966 visitors.
           “Serbia is getting more and more popular, but is still not putting in as much effort as Bulgaria, which has the image of a fun and cheap destination”, Milan Danilović, one of Thompson’s managers, says.
           “Borovec for instance targets the British clientele seriously, they opened a number of pubs, and soon after, 90 percent of their guests were British. Kopaonik is a serious ski center, but the quality of accommodation is problematic”, Danilović says.  
            He added that Serbian tourism’s major shortcoming was the lack of information offered to tourists from abroad. Quality, free brochures, maps and internet sites dedicated to Kopaonik are few and far between.
           “When you search for ‘Kopaonik’, you get only a few links to sites, the best of which are done by enthusiasts. The information on them, however, is not updated regularly to include data such as, temperature, snow cover, traffic, prices, etc. It’s unbelievable that there is no online camera to show Kopaonik goings-on in real time. Potential tourists should be bombarded with information”, Danilović concludes.

          Difficult/black track, recommended exclusively to skiers with experience, not because its difficulty but because its disarrangement. Due to its situation, especially disarrangement this track has a very small number of skiers.

          It is very wide track in its upper part and perfect for skiing but problems occur in the part called Levak, full with stones, so its hard to pass by that part to the place called Kamariste, where Bela Reka II joins with Bela Reka I and Struga. There is no fence that protects skiers from coming out of track, only what are left are rusty pillars, so you wonder what makes danger even more evident. Next thing that needs to be repair in recent time is wire.

         Above all of that, skiing on this track is unforgettable experience, as much as for its path and its magnificent view on South Serbia. Bela Reka II prolongs on Bela Reka I  which leads to Brzece. Complete length of bought tracks is 3500m and height distinction is near 900m.

         Three shortcuts are landing down from the top of the track, one leads to bottom of Gvozdac, another towards Knezevske Bare and other one (never been used) goes toward Struga.

         You can reach to this track: from the top of  Mali Karaman using mountain range cross the top of Ledenice (estimated you need 15 minutes ski-walking) because of slopes and up hills. If Ledenice are in function, which is very rare case, you need lees period of time to get to the top. Once there was baby ski lift between tops of Bele Reke II I Ledenice that was used to make that ascent easier to cross, so you can reach to Bela Reka.
