The Balkans: Three weeks tramping around Europe

The first stop on my whirlwind tour of The Balkans was Ljubljana in Slovenia. From there I headed out to Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj to see more of what this spectacular little country has to offer. Thinking of Slovenia? Click below for more information.

I travelled from Ljubljana to Budapest in a way that I have never travelled anywhere before... Intrigued to learn more? Click the link below. Budapest is a beautiful city by day with its sprawling architecture and a sight to behold by night. You could easily spend a week there.

I had two stops in Serbia - one in Novi Saad and the other in capital city; Belgrade. Holding the top two spots as the country's biggest cities, they were vastly different in comparison to each other. More information and photographs can be seen by clicking the link below.

From Serbia I travelled to Sarajevo, Bosnia's capital. With its rich (and terrifyingly recent) history, the city has much to offer by way of museums, galleries, walking tours and just a short drive away, a visit to the infamous Tunnel. I then popped down to the UNESCO site in Mostar. 

I had hardly even heard of Montenegro before I found myself crossing the border from Bosnia & Herzegovina. It didn't take long before I realised that this must be one of the most underrated countries in the world - what a beautiful place, and right on the water too. Don't be put off by the cruise ships, find a quiet corner and relax.

With its old towns, stunning architecture, Adriatic beaches and friendly people, Croatia is a most wonderful country. Whether you're looking to lie on a beach and soak up the sun, sail around the many islands or wander around the historic town centres; there is something for every interest.
