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.
It's nigh on impossible to come across a travel section without someone trumpeting Montenegro as the new 'it' destination. And though the country is rightfully revelling in the spotlight, the people remain as they've always been: candid, convivial and charming. Bursting at the seams with majestic mountains, breathtaking beaches and larger-than-life locals, minuscule Montenegro proves once and for all that good things do indeed come in small packages.
Closed to outsiders for much of the 20th century, Albania has long been Mediterranean Europe's enigma.
Europe's newest country, Kosovo, fascinating land.
