Me and my boyfriend are visiting the Balkans on 25th June. We only have three weeks so most likely can't do all of this so if there's any you think we should cut off(or add on) let me know! Although we are keen on doing quite a few day trips so please suggest if there would be a good base for us to go on day trips from in certain countries. We're flying into Serbia, and ending in Slovenia as we will be going over to Berlin after. Anyway here's what I've got...
Hi there, I'd totally recommend you to spend 2-3 days in Bulgaria - fantastic places, food & wine, monasteries and nature - especially in the summertime! Belgrade is a big city and there aren't so many things to do/see - a day should be enough, go South! 5 months ago
If we were to make the list a bit shorter, I'd skip Budva in MN, Mostar and Neum in Bosnia, and perhaps Zagreb too - it's charming, but Dubrovnik is more special. Instead, you might want to do daytrips from Belgrade, Kotor, Dubrovnik and maybe Ljubljana. Serbia has amazing attractions within 200-250 km from Belgrade such as Lepenski Vir; alternatively, take a train to Montenegro and you can stop somewhere in southern Serbia too - for sites like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C4%90avolja_Varo%C5%A1
Montenegro and Croatia are beautiful, especially along the coastline - from Boka Kotorska in MN to Istria in CR; Slovenia has lovely nature, too. So if I were you I'd plan a good connecting route between Serbia and Slovenia, and choose a few attractions that were along it. Hope this helps :). 5 months ago
I love love love Croatia. It's so unique. You'd be missing out if you didn't head to one of the islands. They are breathtaking. I recommend Hvar, but they are all nice. Plitvice lakes are also incredible and on of the top national parks in Europe. Dubrovnik is a definite, but you may want to stop in a smaller beach town like Split or Pula (which has ancient roman ruins). 4 months agoAnswered by Aleks via WorldNomads.com
