Slovenia – A unique paradise for nature lovers:
Slovenia is a real “Europe in Miniature”, also called the “Switzerland of the Balkans”. It offers you a wide range of geographical diversity at a glance – high mountains overlooking beautiful lakes near the magnificent karst caves, the welcoming coastline beckoning you before you immerse yourself in the lively urban centres while in the East, a gentle landscape of plains, rivers hills and vineyards unfolds.
Croatia – Your Mediterranean dream:

In Bosnia, time stops. Feel the quiet air of the country where people are sincere, the pace of life is slow and the little things are still valued.
Macedonia – The infant of Balkan tourism:
In Macedonia, you will find all the ingredients for a perfect holiday – beautiful nature, ancient and modern architecture, ecotourism, adventure tourism, religious tourism, and much more.
Montenegro – A country of astonishing diversity:
Sea salt, the smell of mountain chalets, the eternal snows, mimosa, stone steps in old towns, oleanders, the smell of homemade bread – Montenegro is unforgettable, unique and exceptional.
Albania – The most mysterious country in Europe:
Albania is an unspoilt gem, still spared from the invasion of tourism. It will not leave you unmoved. Hurry to discover it before the masses rush in.
