By bne IntelliNews June 17, 2021

The Digital Serbia initiative and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) presented the website on June 17 to promote Serbia's capital as an attractive destination for digital nomads and other digital professionals from all over the world to live and work. 

In anticipation of the end of the pandemic, more and more countries are launching international promotions aimed at digital nomads — among them exotic tourist destinations such as Barbados and Costa Rica, but also European countries such as Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia and Montenegro, said a UNDP statement, Serbian media reported.

The statement points out that, through the initiative originated from the domestic digital and startup community, Belgrade is also one of the 20 most popular destinations according to users of Nomad List, a site that brings together the world's largest network of digital nomads.
