The Balkan region is much easier to travel through than it was just a few years ago, but it’s still off the beaten path and requires some research and planning. Although your patience might be tested daily during your travels, the Balkans will reward you with beautiful landscapes, rich culture and history, friendly locals, and the cheapest prices in Europe. Your route through the Balkans will obviously depend on where you start and finish and how much time you have. As with any road trip, try to mark the places you really want to see and then join the dots in the most logical way.
Here is my suggestion for a couple of weeks of travel, but feel free to adjust the route based on your interests, budget, and seasons of the year.
Hardly undiscovered, but certainly underrated, this tiny Balkan country packs a powerful punch: safety, thriving tourism industry, and breathtaking scenery.
