Yugoslav Heritage

We invite you to join us and visit other countries of former Yugoslavia. Once touristically advertised as a mix of 6 Republics, 5 nations (and 20 ethnic minorities), 4 religions, 3 languages, 2 alhabets and 1 single state, today we are six separate countries, with a common territorial and cultural past, cherishing thousands of years of historical evolutions. All of the Southern Slavs went through the same civilizational developments and changes from the pre-historical period to the 20th century history, especially after being united in  a commonle state in 1918. Serbia had then the role similar to the one Cavour’s Piedmont had in shaping-up modern Italy some decades earlier.

It has certainly been quite an experiment, some might say it was a forced and unequal unity after WW1, some other consider  the post-WW2 federal state of Marshal Tito as a first sort of common market and union, a predecessor of today’s EU.The most interesting and intriguing moments of Yugoslav history from its creation to the final break-up in 1991 and 2006 are the highlights of World War 2 and the Communist era of social equality attempts.

Tours tailored on any grounds, such as any kind of Balkan cultural tours, such as an Orthodox-related one that would include Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Bosnia&Hercegovina and its predominantly Byzantine, Roman and Ottoman historical and religious heritage, or a Communist-related tour, the venues of epic battles of the Marshal Tito Partisans during their WW2 liberation struggle, as well the social achievements that were abandoned after the 1991 split-up. Further on, a City-Break tour of the capitals of the former Republics, today new states, with their differences and new evolutions.

Keeping in mind Yugoslavia presented an unleveled in Europe quantity of natural beauty, to name some of them, like the Thousand Islands Dalmatian coastline, the Plitvice and Krka lakes & waterfalls, the Postojna Cave, the Julian and Dinaric Alps, the three Macedonian and one Montenegrin lakes, Mt. Durmitor and the Tara River deepest European canyon, the unique Mediterranean fyord called Boka Bay, the Sava&Danube confluence where the Belgrade metropolis was built in 20 centuries Visiting the Venice heritage along the Adriatic coastline would be quite an idea, as well as some of our offered summer or winter vacations in the Regional Tours section.
