SUGGESTED DESTINATIONS

ZAGREB

Croatia’s capital offers a completely different picture of Croatia than the coastal cities travellers usually visit on their trip to Croatia. Zagreb’s cityscape is an interesting mixture of classic Austro-Hungarian architecture and modernist communist architecture. It is big enough to offer a full range of diverse sights and attractions for everyone, but also compact enough to be explored on foot. This makes it perfect for exploring. We’ll take you on a foodie adventure filled with some of the best local dishes in the city. After visiting Istria region, you’ll see a completely different culinary tradition of Zagreb area. The difference in the selection of ingredients and their preparation is truly notable.

BELGRADE

Serbia’s capital and the biggest city in the Balkans should be at the top of your list. You’ll love its diverse architecture, including old fortresses and orthodox churches surrounded by Soviet, neo-classical and ultra-modern buildings. The “white city” has been on the intersection of Western and Oriental Europe ever since its beginnings about 20.000 years ago. However, modern Belgrade has a funky vibe to it. It is known in the Balkans for its great cafe scene and nightlife. Belgraders party all year round on permanently moored boats along the banks of the rivers Sava and Danube.

SARAJEVO

The capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina is so much more than just that. Sarajevo is an amazing meeting point of East and West, tradition and modernity, where the Austro-Hungarian and Otto-man cultural influences merge. You can visit Catholic church, Orthodox church, synagogue and mosque in a day. It’s a town where World War I all began. Moreover, Sarajevo suffered greatly during WWII and the Yugoslavia war. Nonetheless, Bosnian’s remained known as most welcoming hosts, who will greet you with an amazing sense of humour, delicious food and tasty home-made spirits.

MOSTAR

Mostar is the biggest city in the Herzegovina part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Also, it’s the city you’ll never forget. Expect the skyline dominated by minarets, church bells and huge white cross in the hilltop. The most iconic landmark of the city is the UNESCO World Heritage Site Old Bridge. It’s the beating heart of the city, where Muslims, Catholics and Orthodox live in harmony. Built during the Ottomans, the bridge was destroyed in 1993 during the Yugoslavia war. It was built again in 2004. We’ll take you through the narrow cobblestone streets of the Old City and show you the best of Mostar.

DUBROVNIK

Once you set your eyes on the ancient city walls elevated above the turquoise Adriatic Sea, you will understand why Dubrovnik, once the capital of the mighty seafaring Republic of Ragusa, is now on the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites. We will take you down the glittering streets covered with limestone, show you where to have a memorable meal and let you explore the amazing history of its stone baroque buildings. You might want to choose to visit the enchanting Lokrum island from the town harbour or let us take you on a private speedboat tour around the mesmerising Elaphite Islands.

KOTOR

Many say that the Bay of Kotor is one of the most beautiful places in Europe. So, we suggest putting this part of Montenegro on your Balkan tour list. Surrounded by picturesque mountains and crystal clear waters, Kotor is a small but beautiful Mediterranean town. Old Town Kotor truly deserves its place on the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites. If you have the stamina to make a 1350-step climb to the top of the St. John’s Fortress, you’ll get the picture-perfect view of the town and the entire bay. Don’t miss an opportunity to go on a boat tour and visit the small town of Perast and the nearby islet called Our Lady of the Rocks.

TIRANA

The fascinating capital of Albania is a vibrant city with a lot to offer, but still rarely visited by foreign travellers. The main reason for the lack of tourists is the fact that only three decades ago Albania was an isolated state under Communism. Its charm comes from the mixture of old and new blending into one. You can cover Tirana’s key sites, which largely run along the Boulevard of the Martyrs, in one day. There are a growing café and foodie culture with great local cuisine. Moreover, Albania’s not a large country and Tirana’s located almost in its centre. So, Tirana can be used as a great base for excursions around the countryside and trips to Albania’s seaside.

OHRID

Ohrid lies in the southwestern corner of Macedonia, on the border with Albania. Nicknamed the ‘Jerusalem of the Balkans’, Ohrid is both a cultural and natural UNESCO World Heritage site. Along with being one of the oldest settlements in Europe, the town of Ohrid stands on a three million years old Lake Ohrid. Expect amazing views and glimmering beaches. Also, don’t miss Ohrid’s cuisine. It is best known for its unique combination of the Mediterranean and Turkish cuisine, with a hint of Italy.

SKOPJE

Macedonia’s capital is a town with over 1500 years of history for you to explore. As you have probably noticed, many capitals on the Balkans are an interesting mix of influences. So is Skopje. Walking along the banks of the Vardar River, you’ll see everything- from baroque to neoclassical to Las-Vegas-style. Moreover, no matter where you go in the city centre of Skopje, there will always be a statue somewhere nearby or a fake pirate ship. However, if we put the eclectic architecture aside, Skopje is truly a fun place to visit, with great food and friendly people.
