Thank you for all this info about Serbia. We work with tourists here and I am surprised with the number of tourists in Belgrade. Especially from UK, SAD... Since there is no ban to enter our country, some travelers will probably stay stuck here until the covid is over. Just wear masks inside and keep a distance. Everything is open as regular but some clubs and restaurants works until 11pm. Enjoy Serbia during Covid, what can I say, we met a lot of travelers and they didn't have any problem.
