Highlights

Begin your discovery of south-eastern Europe, taking in medieval monasteries, charming villages and dynamic cities, on a 17 day Spectacular Balkans small group tour.

Get your first introduction to this region’s medieval history with visits to a pair of Serbia’s most culturally important monasteries at Manasija and Ravanica, and follow this up with extra insight into the area’s ancient past by stopping at the archaeological sites at Mediana (Serbia) and Stobi (Macedonia). Have some time to take in the pretty streetscape of Ohrid and the views of the city’s namesake lake, and make another border crossing to travel to Tirana in Albania. Admire the Albanian capital’s most striking landmarks – Skanderbeg Square, Et’Hem Bey Mosque, the Clock Tower – on a guided trip, and then delve into the country’s Communist legacy by learning about the concrete bunkers around the city of Durres. 

Move into Montenegro and cruise along its spectacular coastline with stops in Budva and Kotor. Journey to the highest point in the Balkans at Durmitor Mountain and capture the beauty of this landscape, with its graceful peaks, glittering lakes and verdant meadows. Seek out Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina and wander around its famous old town market at Bascarsija – a great place to sample Serbian coffee and pick up some souvenirs of your tour. Stroll past the well-preserved wooden structures inside the open-air museum at Sirogojno to gain a glimpse into traditional life, and return to Belgrade to tick off some of the Serbian capital’s most important things to see, such as Kalemegdan Fortress, St. Sava and the vibrant Skadarlija vintage street.
