DAY 1 | Dubrovnik arrival

Arrive at Dubrovnik Airport and transfer to hotel. Relax and enjoy some free time.
Dinner and overnight in Dubrovnik.

DAY 2 | Dubrovnik | Mostar | Sarajevo

Travelling around the Balkans region, one is quickly stunned with the abundance of cultures, traditions and religions sustaining at such close distance. You’ll witness this today, as soon as you cross the border into Bosnia and Herzegovina and the landmarks change from Mediterranean to Ottoman. The town of Mostar, the first stop, is spread out on the banks of the river Neretva, its two sides – the Croatian and Muslim – joined by an old, UNESCO-listed Ottoman bridge. In Sarajevo, one finds a Cathedral, a mosque, a synagogue and an orthodox church all within the same block. The cultured capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina was always at a crossroads of cultures, yet still, its Bašćaršija center has a distinct Turkish feel to it. After an afternoon guided tour complete with a visit to Gazi Husfref Bay Mosque, enjoy a dinner. Overnight in Sarajevo.

DAY 3 | Sarajevo | Belgrade

After breakfast, drive northwest to visit another distinct country in the region, Serbia. Driving against the course of the river Drina, which forms the larger part of the border between Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, notice the subtle change of scenery as you step foot into the Orthodox area of the Balkans peninsula. Your destination is the present-day capital of Serbia, Belgrade, also the former capital of Yugoslavia. You’ll see this prolonged sense importance materialised in the grandeur of the city centre architecture and the new glitzy projects trying to infuse the city with fresh foreign investment, but despite its serious side, Belgrade is famous for offering a fantastic time out of the city, so don’t miss out. Dinner and overnight in Belgrade.

DAY 4 | Belgrade | Zagreb

Get to know the charm of Serbia’s capital hidden behind its stern facades. The guided walking tour of Belgrade first takes you to the city’s crown, the Kalemegdan Park, perched high on a cliff which overlooks the romantic encounter of the region’s largest rivers of Sava and Danube. Breathtaking views, historic landmarks and a momentous ambiance are a trademark of every Kalemegdan stroll but the atmosphere soon turns glitzy as you descend onto Knew Mihajlova Street and the busy Republic Square. Explore the orthodox religion at the town’s largest temple of St. Sava and get an insight on the Yugoslavian times in Tito’s Memorial. After the tour, complete your 3-countries-tour circle by driving back to Zagreb. Dinner and overnight in Zagreb.

DAY 5 | Zagreb | Plitvice

Despite a million people living here, Zagreb somehow manages to retain the cosy feel about it and you will best experience this wandering around the historic, fortified Upper Town. The place of legends, rebellions and witches burnt at stake, the Upper town is home of the Cathedral, St. Mark’s church with the colourful roof and several present-day government buildings. Spread out at its feet, the Lower town oozes a more modern, but still very continental air about it, with many highlights such as the Croatian National Theatre and the University. In the afternoon, swap the city for nature and drive out to Plitvice Lakes area. Dinner and overnight in Plitvice.

DAY 6 | Plitvce | Trogir | Split

Depart to the country’s most famous region – Dalmatia. The drive is a lovely showcase of Croatia’s diversity, as you will travel from the continental highlands over a mountain pass to find yourself suddenly blinded by the shimmering blue of the Adriatic Sea. Your first stop, the tiny and charming UNESCO-listed jewel of Trogir, introduces the bounty and splendour of heritage on the coast. Stop to admire the intricate 13th-century portal of its Cathedral of St. Lawrence before continuing to the largest city on the coast, Split. Its lively historic core was once a one man’s retirement palace. The man was the Roman Emperor Diocletian and his modest home is today inhabited by 3000 people. Your walking tour highlights the stunning landmarks like the theatrical open-air Peristyle, the Temple of Jupiter and the Cathedral of St. Dominus, the patron saint of Split. Dinner and overnight in Split.

DAY 7 | Split | Dubrovnik

Travelling south from Split takes you along the ribbon of roads knit tightly along the edges of Croatia’s shorelines and through the beautiful landscapes of flat and fertile delta of Neretva River. Your final stop is Croatia’s Pearl of the Adriatic, the beautiful Dubrovnik. Enlisted as UNESCO World heritage for decades now, exploring Dubrovnik with a guide is an idyllic way to complete your Croatian Delights tour. Like a stroll through long-gone centuries, stop to admire the still-operating pharmacy from 1317 at the Franciscan Monastery, the seat of the former Republic government at the Rector’s Palace and the revered Cathedral. Dinner and overnight in Dubrovnik.

DAY 8 | Dubrovnik departure
