The Balkans have so much to offer it can seem impossible to make a Balkan travel plan that covers all the bases. And in some ways, it is, as it would take a lifetime to truly get to know this region and its ways. But we’re guessing you don’t have a lifetime to spare, so here’s the next best thing!

In this ultimate Balkan trip you’re going to explore the region’s nature, culture, and history, along with six amazing capitals in just sixteen days

On this tour, you will visit all the former Jugoslav republics as well as beachy Albania. You’ll start our adventure in Serbia, a former monarchy with all the mighty architecture to show for it. After exploring its two largest cities, Belgrade, and Novi Sad, you’ll head to the much smaller but equally impressive Slovenia. On the way, you’ll also stop in Zagreb, for a teaser of Croatia before you really dig into its heavenly seaside later on in the tour.

After getting to know Slovenia’s lovely capital Ljubljana, and its mesmerizing Alpine world full of breathtaking glacial lakes, magical forests, and awe-inspiring mountains, as well as the mysterious underground of the Postojna Cave, you’ll head back to Croatia. After a night in the bourgeois seaside resort of Opatija, you’ll head to the incredible Plitvice National Park for another dose of picture-perfect natural scenery.

Istria and Dalmatia, are a paradise for anyone who loves historic little towns with romantic narrow stone-paved streets, a relaxed, no-fuss atmosphere, and plenty of sunshine with sparkly blue seas offering refreshment just a step away. And since that is pretty much everyone, you’re guaranteed to have the time of your life exploring the Croatian Adriatic coast in towns like Split and Dubrovnik, as well as Kotor and Budva in Montenegro, and the sandy Durres beach in Albania.

And that’s not all! Our Balkan holiday will also include the Turkish influences of Mostar and Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the fascinating mixture of Italian, Greek, Roman, Italian, and Brutalist architecture in Tirana, the capital of Albania, and the central European-like splendor of Skopje, the capital of North Macedonia as well as the country’s proverbial pearl, Lake Ohrid

So, the only thing left for you to do is to book your tour, and join the trip through the best of the Balkans!
