Boban Đurović, Mayor Of Vrnjačka Banja

Monte Carlo In The Heart Of Serbia

Today, Vrnjačka Banja can boast a large number of high-class hotels that, with their rich content and top-quality service in line with European tourist destinations, allow guests to find luxury, comfort and maximum enjoyment

The construction of the Moravian Corridor and the activation of the airport in Lađevci open up the possibility of improving tourism and increasing the number of foreign guests. We will be ready to welcome them because we have a lot to offer them – announces mayor Boban Đurović.

Is Vrnjačka Banja the Monte Carlo of the Western Balkans? Like Monte Carlo, our Spa started its new chapter from the brink of bankruptcy. In 2012, with a clear vision and great ambition, and above all with courage and persistence, with the immeasurable help of the state and from businessmen, we began to fix our infrastructure and solve long-standing problems that had hindered development.

Thanks to some large projects and ideas, the Spa became interesting to the media and large companies who saw an interest in investing in a place where progress has become more and more visible, and the number of guests is increasing year by year. Many of them do business and have their own properties in Monte Carlo, and now also in Vrnjačka Banja.

Year after year, new investment is made, new luxury hotels are built with a large number of additional innovative contents that are difficult to find even in many leading European tourist centres.

You have preserved health tourism as the backbone of development, but this Spa is no longer just a place where elderly people are treated, right?

Some guests come here looking for a cure, but there are also those who want rest, fun, relaxation, education. In recent years, Vrnjačka Banja attracts more and more young people due to the variety of attractions and entertainment, festivals, concerts, theater performances, cultural and sports events. There is also the mountain Goč, which offers an opportunity for an active vacation, but we also have the largest aqua park and ferris wheel in the Balkans.

An additional impetus will be given to the development of Goč by our best tennis player, Novak Đoković, who is to build a luxury hotel complex

The Spa is increasingly the choice of young family people because of the many facilities for children. A large landscaped park area without traffic, a 3.5 hectare zoo that is home to over 120 species of animals from almost all parts of the world, carefully designed indoor and outdoor playgrounds and amusement parks.

We often host top athletes and sports teams from Serbia and abroad. After fitting the Kocka stadium for small sports, building four sports halls and opening a football field according to FIFA standards, we are planning investment in three more football fields, the construction of another sports hall has started…

Can you tell us at least part of the strategy for the coming years?

We are soon expecting to complete the Lerov tunnel, the ferris wheel, but also the most glamorous Zepterma facility with a helipad that introduces new facilities to Vrnjačka Banja and luxury that can only be found at the most exclusive tourist destinations. An additional impetus will be given to the development of Goč by our best tennis player, Novak Đoković, who is to build a luxury hotel complex and a gondola, on the principle of publicprivate partnership. New tourist attractions will be built on Goč: an adrenaline park, zip line, adventure park, new ski trails, fitness trails. The plan is also to build a mini zoo, and typical mountain tourist resorts with restaurants and wellness centres.

The construction of the Moravian Corridor will give a great impetus to the further development of the entire region. This makes Vrnjačka Banja more accessible and closer to tens of millions of people traveling from Europe to Turkey, Greece, Macedonia…
