Travel the Balkan countries, visit historical cities and picturesque islands, have a rest at the beaches of the Adriatic Sea and enjoy the nightlife, seizing every moment.
The capital of Croatia, Zagreb, can be divided into two parts – the upper part with medieval buildings and the lower part, which is more modern with parks, squares and notable buildings. In Zagreb you can visit the museums of art, history and archaeology, the zoo or the nearby lakes, which are beloved picnic place for local inhabitants. On the next morning you will have an orientation walk and transfer to Plitvice to visit one of the most significant natural wonders of Croatia - Plitvice Lakes National Park with 16 natural lakes with water of different colours, about 140 waterfalls and 20 caves. Then go to Split and spend two days there. Split is one of the oldest cities of Croatia with the Roman style architecture in temples, walls and squares. To enjoy the panoramic view of the city and port, climb the Saint Domnius Bell tower, and if you want to have a rest at the beach, head to the Golden Cape (Zlatni Rat).

Take a ferry to Hvar on the next morning. It is UNESCO World Heritage listed island and town, that historically has been of strategic importance. Its fields of lavender and olive groves have impressed many writers and artists. Enjoy the all-inclusive cruise party and stop at secluded coves around the Pakleni Islands. Then you will go to Dubrovnik which is commonly referred to as the Pearl of the Adriatic Sea. The UNESCO World Heritage site boasts plenty of churches, monasteries, fountains, and plazas to discover. The mix of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles will keep your camera interested as you wonder through the streets. Explore the Old Town passing by Roland's Column, the Bell Tower and Sponza Palace, and make a stop at Big Onofrio´s Fountain, which is a popular place for meeting. The visit to Dubrovnik would be incomplete unless you explored the medieval fortification wall of the Old City, which is almost 2 km long, including the forts and towers.

On the next day you will go to Montenegro and the Bay of Kotor to have a rest at the beach, go hiking, visiting to the Lake Skadar or the town of Kotor embraced by old fortified walls. There are local mud therapy spas available nearby to test the healing properties of these natural treasures, and enjoy the group tour to Perast, which is old and beautiful town at the Bay of Kotor. Then cross the border into Albania to visit its capital city Tirana with the option to attend the Et'hem Bey Mosque, the Clock Tower that is located in the centre of the city, and to visit the National Museum of History. Consider travelling up to Mount Dajti by cable car to get a nice panoramic view of Tirana. Then travel to the Albanian Riviera town of Saranda. It is located near to an ancient Greek city of Butrint and a natural Blue Eye spring or Syri i kaltër, which is at least 50 m deep natural spring of karsts. After that go to Corfu or the Island of Cercira that is the most popular Ionic Island. It seduces by picturesque villages, the Venetian architecture, fountains and labyrinths, as well as active night life, and is often called the "little paradise". By the evening of the next day you will come to Athens that is one of the oldest cities in the world and spend one more night there.
