Kopaonik, June 19, 2020 – The summer season on Kopaonik is open today, and during the next three months visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy numerous facilities and top service of the largest hotel complex, as well as various outdoor activities, some of which will be presented to guests, leading agencies and to the media this weekend.

We offer trips to attractive and lesser-known sites on Kopaonik, a tour of the highest waterfall in Serbia on the slopes of the sunny mountain, new hiking tours, visits to nearby monasteries, farms and wineries, botanical tours and much more. For lovers of more active holidays, there are safaris and quad adventures, mountain biking, summer skiing, paragliding, horseback riding, panoramic cable car rides, and other fun activities.

On the occasion of the opening of the season, representatives of the most important institutions and organizations dealing with tourism in Serbia, visited Kopaonik.

Minister of Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications Rasim Ljajic said that Kopaonik suffered the least damage of all tourist destinations during the corona crisis, because this destination has the highest turnover in the first three months, when 50 percent of the annual number of overnight stays was realized and foreigners in question as much as 70 percent.

„We are making great efforts to offer tourists adequate facilities and we are trying to overcome the problem of seasonality together with hoteliers. I believe that from July 10, the capacities will be filled and that we will jointly achieve results worthy of this destination. We are using this season to prepare Kopaonik and other destinations for complete recovery, and as early as next week, works on the construction of the gondola from Brzeće to Kopaonik will begin, which will realize a project of great importance for the entire region, “said Ljajić. The Minister also pointed out that it is important for Kopaonik to unite with other nearby destinations, in order to make record results with joint efforts.

The President of the Serbian Chamber of Commerce, Marko Čadež, spoke about the importance of tourism for economic recovery and pointed out that the opening of the summer season is a particularly important day for Kopaonik and Serbia after the crisis that particularly affected the catering sector and hotels.

“I want to invite our citizens to spend their summers here, as I will do, and with that personal decision we can save jobs for 300 people, that is, families, as many as MK Group has employed here on Kopaonik,” said Čadež.

The Tourist Organization of Serbia has been reminding citizens of all the beauties of our country for weeks, and Kopaonik, due to all the riches it offers to visitors, is the most attractive destination, both for locals and tourists from the region.

“It is important to show citizens how to spend time in a quality way in Serbia. In accordance with our campaign “Izaberi svoju avanturu, vidi Srbiju”, special attention should be paid to this destination. We hope that visitors will be satisfied with the rich content prepared for them and that will bring only positive impressions from Kopaonik “, said Marija Labović, director of the Tourist Organization of Serbia

The importance of domestic tourism, especially this year, is evidenced by the fact that the interest of guests is greater than in previous years.

“The dynamics of booking summer packages is already such that 10 to 20 percent more overnight stays are expected compared to last year. At the very opening of the summer season, the capacities of the Grand Hotel are full, and we expect good occupancy in the coming months and between 12 and 15 thousand guests by the end of the season. With attractive prices and facilities, with the application of the highest standards when it comes to safety of guests and employees, we have maximally adapted to the domestic market, and with an innovative offer and concept of meaningful multi-day summer vacation we want to justify the reputation of a leader and present Kopaonik to a wider audience. ” said Radoš Đorđević, general manager of the MK Resort Hotel and the Grand Hotel.

With the application of all safety measures and respecting the highest hotel standards, Grand Hotel & Spa is ready for the new summer season, which officially began today.

This summer, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy top service, which is what makes the Grand Hotel recognizable.

They will have at their disposal a new concept of family vacation and entertainment, with a special focus on the youngest guests for whom a research camp, a school of forest rangers, a mini ranch and all-day animation have been designed.
