With over 26 centuries of history, Macedonia has a fascinating past. Glittering Lake Ohrid and its historic town have etched out a place for Macedonia on the tourist map, but there is a wealth of natural beauty in this small country. Diving into the historic Čaršija (Old Ottoman Bazaar) of Macedonia's friendly capital, seeking out its modernist architecture and marvelling at the supersized riverside monuments.
Diverse, welcoming and a hell of a lot of fun - everything you never heard about Serbia is true. Best of all, this landlocked country in the heart of the Balkans is still delightfully off the tourist trail. While the feisty Serbian spirit is embodied in Belgrade's world-class nightlife.
Soul-stirring mountains rival golden beaches, while cities hum with nightlife and art. Within Bulgaria's beguiling blend of nature and history, unforgettable adventures are guaranteed. No visitor to Bulgaria can fail to be impressed by its religious art.
