The Association of Serbian-Indonesian Friendship NUSANTARA on the occasion of 18 years since its foundation, is organising the virtual exhibition ”Bali – The Island of Gods” of the fine art photographer, Darko Srećković, on the website the Association NUSANTARA www.nusantara.rs.

The NUSANTARA association is organising the exhibition about the Indonesian island of Bali with the intention to reveal to the citizens of Serbia the numerous beauties of one of the most important tourist destinations in Indonesia., which is the most visited Indonesian tourist destination where Serbians spend their vacations on.

On the virtual exhibition 52 photographs are presented where the colourful nature and the life of common man are shown in tropical and pictoresque Indonesia. Srećković organised the trip on his own in May of 2018. like a true globetrotter. The first part of his vacation he spent in Ubud in the inland, a very interesting and lively city of artists and artisans, of a relaxed atmosphere, smiling and kind people. The second part of the journey was in the south of the island, in the Nusa Dua region, touring the southern part of Bali, with the beautiful beaches and the iconic Uluwatu temple. All the time he took photos and gave the best to evoke the natural beauty, the architecture, the culture and the varied gastronomy. He was completely delighted by everything experienced on Bali, the most powerful impression left were the people and their positive energy. For Bali, which is in the plethora of the numerous Buddhist and Hindu temples, it is not accidental they say it is the island of gods. The Balinese, who are always smiling and pleasant, live a modest, hapy life, in the shadow of the volcano, full of challenges. That pleasure of theirs and a positive outlook on everything contributed to the tourists feeling special.
