The Balkans are a tremendously fascinating area of south-eastern Europe that one simply has to visit to understand why. It’s a melting pot of … well, everything. Geographically, politically, socially, culturally, historically and gastronomically speaking, Balkan holidays are a perfect blend for holidaymakers who want to spoil all their senses.
You get to witness the spectacular diversity, both cultural and natural, as you travel from one stunning location to the next. The carefully planned itineraries of these extensive holiday packages include three wonderful countries and reveal some of their most prised treasures.
Once sister states in former Yugoslavia, today friendly neighbours with their sights on a prosperous future, Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia & Herzegovina are waiting to be explored. All three share a number of common characteristics yet differ in many more.
When you join a Balkan Holidays tour, you take a journey back in time, visiting medieval castles in Slovenia’s countryside, Roman ruins on the Dalmatian coast and renowned remnants of the Ottoman Empire on the banks of a Bosnian river.
It’s a sightseer’s dream, taking you to places like Lake Bled in the Alps, the charming capitals of Ljubljana and Zagreb, deep into world-famous karst caves and breath-taking national parks. From green valleys to the Adriatic Sea and its gorgeous islands and historical masterpieces like Trogir and Dubrovnik.
But it’s not just about the places themselves, it’s about the people, the food, it’s about tasting, observing and feeling the marvellous mosaic called the Balkans. Besides seeing numerous unforgettable landmarks and learning a great deal about the local life, Balkan Holidays also offer plenty of time to just relax, sit, stroll around, and take it all in.
