Belgrade for 4 years. Authorities canceled previous rallies to avoid a repeat of violence from anti-gay hardliners.
Historically, the train link between Belgrade and Sarajevo was probably the most important one in the Balkans. Today the service lacks some of the comforts of yesteryear.The restaurant car is Serbian, but both of the other cars are Bosnian: one comes from the Serb-dominated political entity Republika Srpska while the other is from the Muslim-Croat Federation. The locomotive is changed every time the train crosses the border, slowing down the trip significantly. But the new train connection is symbolic -- showing that the former enemies are trying to improve their relationship.

The Serbian anti-regime youth movement Otpor is an inspiration to the Tunisian and Egyptian demonstrators who recently took to the streets to call for greater democracy in their countries. In 2000, the activities of the student-led Serbian uprising, Otpor! led to the overthrow of dictator Slobodan Milošević.Some of its members went on to set up the Centre for Applied Nonviolent Action and Strategies, which provides training and workshops for pro-democracy activists in countries such as Egypt, Tunisia and Iraq. They teach the importance of following an idea rather than a person: and of having stamina and faith in peaceful change. And these days, student protestors can use the Internet to get organized.

A day-by-day video travel journal of fourteen students from High Mowing School who toured Serbia for 10 days in May, 2011, hosted by the Media Education Centre of Belgrade. This is the first of several short documentaries made by the participants.
In the spring of 2002, Serbian Prime Minister Dr. Zoran Djindjic visited all major cities in Serbia and, in meetings with citizens, talked about his views, their concerns and the position of Serbia overall. From the documentary materials we made this half-hour program, an exciting collage reflecting the energetic prime minister's own personality. This film was made to mark the first anniversary of the assassination of the Prime Minister on the 12th of March 2004. Soon thereafter, a spontaneous grassroots movement called "Copy & Get It!" spread across the country and beyond - consisting of young adults whose goal is to pursue Djindjic's vision of Serbia, the movement spread the film far and wide through DVD distribution and the internet.

Feb 1997 We closely follow the people behind the protest movement. For three months, protesters braved one of the coldest winters in Serbia to do battle with police truncheons and tear gas. Students, Miroslav and Maria, are learning to beat government sponsored repression with banners and marches. Maria explains that after the war and consequent economic crisis, Milosevic's annulment of local elections was "the last straw". Backed by their professors who suspended classes in protest, the students turned their faculty into an HQ and communicate with their supporters through newsletters and the Internet. But they remain cynical about the Opposition's commitment to democracy and blame politicians for the war in Yugoslavia. Consequently, they kept their rallies separate and emphasize that the...

The National Tourism Organisation of Serbia (TOS) was founded in 1994 as a government organisation to promote and improve tourism in the Republic of Serbia in both the domestic and foreign tourism markets, with the aim of affirming the value and potential of the country's tourist industry. TOS is the legal successor of the former Tourist Association of Serbia. TOS activities focus on positioning Serbian tourism on the domestic and international markets and evaluating the comparative advantages of Serbia with respect to tourism, such as the country's geographical location and historical, cultural and natural identity.
