Tours preparation and guides organization
Srđan Bošković has a BA in history, but works as a curator and a tourist guide. Above all, he loves conversing with different people, especially history-themed. His family owns a small tourist agency ‘Putokaz 021’. Roaming around Europe, from Paris to Istanbul, and from Krakow to Barcelona is his favorite activity – exploring, learning, and eventually pushing this new information on people around him. The favorite part of his business is, accordingly, developing theme tours in his hometown of Novi Sad (so far there are 12 of them). An unexpected recent new hobby is the preparation of healthy food, with special attention to the widely adored chocolate. One of his favorite spots in Serbia is the Studenica monastery, where he feels like he is part of the centuries-long past.
