Treasures of the Balkans
28 Days / 26 Nights
This tour gives a wonderful opportunity to explore the Balkan countries - true mosaic of people of different cultural, religious and historical backgrounds. Many of the cities and towns in the area are living museums, generously sprinkled with historical remains from the Roman times and onwards; although having a lot of influence of bigger powers throughout the history, which left their mark, the countries of the Balkans and the people retain their national identity and characteristic cultural inheritance. The birthplace of the Cyrillic alphabet and home to some well-known, important citizens such as Tito and Mother Teresa, is also blessed with one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline, unspoilt countryside and breathtaking mountains.
Best seasons to travel to this destination are fall and spring
