We explore the city during the day i.e: a sightseeing tour, visit some museums and experiencing the local cuisine. On the Saturday night, The Grand Budapest Party is on so if you fancy that sorta thing it would be amazing to go to. Spartybooking.com I am also open to any suggestions
Zagreb is made for strolling. Wander through the Upper Town's red-roof and cobblestone glory, peppered with church spires. Crane your neck to see the domes and ornate upper-floor frippery of the Lower Town's mash-up of secessionist, neo-baroque and art deco buildings. Search out the grittier pockets of town where ugly-bland concrete walls have been transformed into colourful murals by local street artists. This city rewards those on foot.
Slovenia's capital and largest city is one of Europe's greenest and most liveable capitals; it was the European Commission's Green Capital of Europe in 2016. Car traffic is restricted in the centre, leaving the leafy banks of the emerald-green Ljubljanica River, which flows through the city's heart, free for pedestrians and cyclists. In summer, cafes set up terrace seating along the river; it almost feels like a nightly street party. Day trip to Lake Bled is optional though looks really nice.
Croatia’s third-largest city, Rijeka is a bustling blend of gritty 20th-century port and Italianate Habsburg grandeur. Most people speed through en route to the islands or Dalmatia, but those who pause will discover charm, culture an good nightlife.
Cosmopolitan and artsy, Zadar is the biggest metropolis in northern Dalmatia but still flies under the general tourist radar. Zadar is also an art destination of sorts with two unique installations — the Sea Organ and the Sun Salutation — that are not to be missed sound-and-light extravaganzas. Right on the coast, there are also beautiful beaches.
In the 4th Century the Roman Emperor Diocletian built a palace here as a retirement home but today you will find countless restaurants, shops and bars. We ca take a ride on a zipline to see epic views of the island and sea! One of the days we could take a ferry to Hvar for the day.
Walk through the Old Town of this Herzegovina pearl, see the iconic highlights Old Bridge – Stari Most, and the old čaršija (market), as well as trying some of their local food and drink.
Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s capital, the city that has been through it all! It is where the Western and Eastern Roman Empire split and where people of many nations and religions met, lived and warred. You can still see many reminders of the Yugoslav War in bullet holes and cannon marks all around town.
Dubrovnik, the “Pearl of the Adriatic"! With its well-preserved majestic walls encircling the whole town and its sea of terra-cotta roof tiles, giving life to the "King’s Landing", the whole town is an amazing UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Montenegro! Kotor, a less-crowded version of Dubrovnik. With a scenic drive in, see its calming natural beauty and characteristic architecture, with its impressive medieval citadel.
Tirana has some of the best preserved and most beautiful samples of Albanian architecture. We could take a bus for a day trip to Lake Ohrid that hosts hundreds of chapels and churches scattered all around.
Meteora is famous for its breath-taking scenery and ageless monasteries, almost suspended between the earth and sky. The town hosts one of the largest and steepest complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries, literally named as “middle of the sky”. The World Heritage-listed site is out-of-this-world with its unique landscape of immense monolithic pillars and huge rounded boulders hosting monasteries on top, and one of the most visited locations in Greece. Each monastery has a central courtyard surrounded by chapels and living cells of monks, who have inhabited the region since the 11th century – for far less than the first inhabitants from 50,000 years ago.
With equal measures of grunge and grace, Athens is a heady mix of ancient history and contemporary cool. Obligatory visit to Acropolis and the stunning beaches.
