They say that smells make the strongest memories. Well, with all the delectable dishes and their mouth-watering aromas, the Balkan Foodie Discovery tour will offer a lot of incredible everlasting memories.

This culinary Balkan travel adventure will take you through all the flavors of the Western Balkans, starting with Slovenia. Slovenia is a small country at the northernmost point of the Balkans. One of its neighbors is Austria, and this is apparent in Slovenia’s cuisine, as the presence of Austrian and central-European cuisine is just as strong as its Balkan influences. We will therefore have the chance to explore this mixture of cultures and food and ease our way into proper Balkan cuisine.

As you approach the Slovenian coast that is part of the Istria region you will also see that like in Croatia, we get more of the Mediterranean influences, in food as well as in Slovenia’s amazing wines. The sea air in Slovenia will acclimate you for the tour of Croatia. From Istria to Dalmatia, Croatia is famous for its beautiful beaches and brilliantly blue seas that are home to a number of delicious fish. You will get your fix of great, fresh seafood, and also see how the more meaty Balkan tendencies are incorporated into the lighter Mediterranean diet. During your Croatian adventure, you will also hop into Bosnia and Herzegovina for a day, to get a taste of the delicious Turkish-Balkan cuisine in Mostar.

Now, despite its fame, Croatia isn’t the only Balkan country boasting beautiful beaches. Montenegro also has a lot to show for itself, from perfect vacation spots to mouthwatering food. With its amazing olive oil, fresh fish and vegetables, and inclusion of typical Balkan meat dishes, Montenegrin cuisine is in a way quite similar to Croatian, but it also has some distinctive features of its own, like the delectable kajmak.

The final days of this Balkan trip are dedicated to Serbia, the best representative of the most iconic part of Balkan cuisine: čevapčiči. With its wide range of finger-licking good grilled meat dishes, an incredibly delicious and comforting bean dish called prebranac, the tasty dairy spread kajmak, that Montenegrins also claim as their own, the refreshing and delicious condiment named ajvar, and burek, the savory pastry you’ll always be in the mood for, Serbian cuisine is the intersection of all the best of Balkan food and the perfect way to end your tour.

Join this tour to discover the flavors of the Balkans, and enjoy/dober tek/prijatno!
