The beauty of the Balkans can be seen in the multitude of cultures, religions, ethnicities and nationalities living together on a relatively small piece of land. The knowledge gained from this variety is immense, and you will certainly feel like you are traveling through time while exploring the heritage of Serbia, Bosnia, Montenegro and Croatia.

This ten-day, guided, group tour is the perfect option for those wishing to explore this region located at the crossroads between Europe and Asia. Reminisce about the heydays of the Kingdom of Serbia while looking at various architectural styles in Belgrade, opt for a delicious tufahija in Baščaršija in Sarajevo and daydream while taking in the spectacular views of Croatian Islands and pristine-blue Adriatic Sea.

Plus, there is the innate cheerfulness of the Balkan people, their warm hospitality and the impressive history of each region that will turn this ten-day trip into an adventure of a lifetime. This trip comes to an end in Zagreb after you have soaked up the untouched beauty of Plitvice Lakes National Park, a gorgeous natural reserve containing 16 interconnected cascading lakes in aquamarine and emerald green color variations.
