HIGHLIGHTS
  • Explore the historical and cultural sites of Sarajevo
  • Enjoy a walking tour in Tirana, the capital of Albania
  • Tour the historic part of Dubrovnik, the masterpiece of the Adriatic
  • Take a trip to picturesque Kotor Bay and the town of Kotor
The Balkans were once known as the “Powder Keg of Europe”. Indeed, history is full of sudden burst of strong Balkan passions. But wars are left in the past. We can now only enjoy the beautiful features of the sunny face of the Balkans — beautiful and preserved nature, old monasteries, cozy towns — a different and slightly old-fashioned Europe.

In this 14-day tour of the Balkans, we take you through eight countries in the region. See the most interesting places in each country: Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Albania and Macedonia. They are all alike and at the same time very different in their own ways. This is the place, where Europe meets the Orient, where Christians and Muslims have lived together for centuries, where old traditions coexist with the rhythm of the 21st century.

Highlights of the tour include Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina; Dubrovnik, the masterpiece of the Adriatic; and the picturesque Kotor Bay and the town of Kotor, which form a beautiful ensemble of natural, historic and cultural heritage. You will also visit Visoki Decani Monastery in Kosovo; Tirana, the capital city of Albania; and Ohrid, the capital of Bulgarian Empire.
