One of the few remaining undiscovered corners of Europe, the Balkan Peninsula will not disappoint. Popularly referred to as the Balkans, it’s a geographical and cultural region of Southeast Europe. On this tour we’ll visit every country which made up Yugoslavia and discover how they were shaped by a rich, yet turbulent history.
Meaning ‘land of the south Slavs,’ Yugoslavia existed between 1918 and 2003, made up of the six Socialist Republics of SR Bosnia & Herzegovina, SR Croatia, SR Macedonia, SR Montenegro, SR Slovenia and SR Serbia and two Socialist Autonomous Provinces (Vojvodina and Kosovo).
What have now been formed are beautiful, welcoming tourist destinations with an abundance of hospitable locals. We’d like to shatter any preconceptions you have about this region and take you on a cultural journey visiting some fascinating UNESCO World Heritage Sites and historical cities. If you wish, you can learn more about the history and collapse of Yugoslavia, swim in the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea and travel through some of the most dramatic scenery in Europe.
Each nation offers a different culture, cuisine and tradition and are now re-emerging as independent countries, packed with places that for years were off limits to most travelers.
And if every country in the former Yugoslavia wasn’t enough, we’ve thrown Albania into the mix too! Step back in time into ‘The Land of the Eagles,’ once one of the most closed off countries in the world.
