Mokrin is right on the Romanian border, which makes for an exciting day trip, while the Hungarian border is a mere 30 miles away. In winter, the Serbian mountains experience heavy snowfall, which is great for a snowboarding weekend away.

Options for eating out are limited. There are a handful of restaurants and a local bar to go out for drinks. Food is an integral part of Serbian culture. If there’s a celebration there are endless meals to enjoy. Just make sure to eat everything on your plate or risk insulting the cook. This leaves a great opportunity to meet locals and see what is made in town. If you ask around, you’ll find at least one family near your coliving space that produces delicious artisanal cheese!
