Experience the millenary and multicultural society of four countries once called Yugoslavia, and one of the cradles of European culture. The diversity of this region is a perfect representation of what makes Europe so unique.
The peninsula occupies a central position on the European continent and is not as marginal as many would think. It is located perfectly between different religions, as well as on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. At the same time, it is and has always been a bridge to Asia or its borders since, at the end of the 4th century, the Roman Empire was divided into two main hemispheres: the Latin of the West and the Greek of the East.
Our journey through the Balkans focuses on the western slopes of the mountain ranges passing through the four countries of the former Yugoslavia: Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia. The focus is on the ethnic variations of the region, its multitude of languages, two alphabets used, and three religions that are practised. The Balkans is a multicultural society, with both tragic ancient and recent past, but also a witness to many moments of peaceful coexistence through its history.
The landscape here carries such weight as does the history; rugged mountains, lush forests, crystal-clear lakes, caves patiently carved by underground rivers, and a magnificent Mediterranean coastline dotted with medieval cities under UNESCO and listed as World Heritage Site. The mixture of civilizations has also left its own legacy in music and various flavors of its heterogeneous cuisine.
