Walk through the national parks and reserves of Serbia and explore the wildlife they offer. Curving meanders, beautiful gorges and mountain ranges as well as indigenous species are just some of the hidden gems waiting to be discovered. Just imagine seeing the bears and wolves in their natural habitat on or hearing the roaring of deer during their breeding season. Serbia is rich in endemic species, some of which are very rare worldwide. The most famous example is the griffon vulture. What’s even more beautiful is that in order to see the richness of Serbia’s flora and fauna, you don’t have to go deep into the forest. The Great War Island is a perfect example. Being situated at the very center of our capital city, it is a home of 196 bird species, many of which are endangered.
Serbia has very rich biodiversity protected through 5 national parks and 75 nature reserves.
Serbia compares well with already established birding destinations like neighboring Hungary or Bulgaria, as it has a greater diversity of habitats and birds than Hungary and a better infrastructure than Bulgaria. The country is home to 90 mammal species, 381 bird species and almost 2000 types of butterfly, along with countless fish, insects, and the terrifying Serbs themselves – brown bear, wild cat, wolf, Balkan chamois, lynx, griffon vulture, pygmy cormorant, long-eared owl and many more. Serbia is home to almost 2000 different species of Lepidoptera, or butterflies and moths to the majority. Most of these are moths, and the number is on the rise. Some of most interesting species are Bog Fritillary and the elusive False Comma, Balkan Copper, Eros Blue, Twin-spot Fritillary, Yellow Banded Skipper, Great Sooty Satyr, Almond-eyed Ringlet and more.
