Truly the Balkans are a stunning destination and if you are lucky enough to be jetting off on a Balkan holiday leaving tomorrow, then you are in for a real treat.
Situated at the crossroads between southeastern Europe and Turkey, the Balkans is very much a part of Europe that was left to its own devices for many decades.
Famous for being the area that was once unified under the flag of the now non-existant Yugoslavia, many of the Balkan states have done their level best to attract tourists and interest in the area is now very much on the rise.
The term Balkan is commonly understood to refer to the countries of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Croatia and Serbia but from a peninsular point of view, it geographically also includes Bulgaria, Greece and possibly Romania. So before you book your holiday leaving tomorrow, make sure you know exactly where you are going!
Balkan Holiday Destinations
Nestled in the heart of the Mediterranean, on the dramatic coastlines of the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, Albania is still relatively unspoiled by the pace of the modern age. An inspiring mix of civilizations and cultures make this country truly unique.
Bosnia & Herzegovina
This mountainous country, formerly a part of Yugoslavia, accesses a small portion of the Adriatic Sea coastline to its south. Its neighbors are Montenegro, Serbia and Croatia. A great way to enjoy the beauty of the country is by car, but the mountainous terrain can make for slow progress.
This tiny state that only became independent in 2008, Kosovo truly represents a treasury of ethnic and religious heritages from various historical periods resulting in a mosaic of cultures. Top destinations include Brezovica, the Sharr mountains and Rugova gorge. EURO is used as an official currency.
Sun, mountains, rivers and lakes and boasting all the amenities of the Western world, Macedonia remains one of Europe’s last great undiscovered countries. Macedonian food resembles the food of the southern Balkans, meaning plenry of grilled meat and fish.
Temperatures can be high to +48 °C during summer (June, July – hottest, August) and low to – 26 °C during winter (December and January – coldest, February).
The turbulent history of this small country has left behind an invaluable treasure of numerous historic monuments throughout this proud country. Montenegrin towns are rich in architecture from various periods that take the breath away and fling one back centuries in time.
Don’t forget to visit the Ostrog monastery, Boka Bay, Lovcen and the Ada Bojana coast.
Situated along the Adriatic Sea and its hinterland, Croatia stretches from the slopes of the Alps and deep into the Pannonian Valley to the banks of the Danube and Drava rivers. Like many countries in Western Europe, Croatia was founded on the ruins of the Roman Empire.
Enjoy the benefits of rural tourism in many of the villages in the continental region of Croatia, as well as of health tourism in a number of spas and thermal and mineral springs, such as Varazdinske, Tuheljske and Stubicke.
Very much seen as the aggressor during the war-torn years that followed the break up of Yugoslavia, Serbia is not for all.
