Flashback Friday: Filming at Old Town Dubrovnik
My Road Trip Route
It has been a fantasy of mine for some time to return to the Balkans ever since first traveling in May 2008 by Croatia, Montenegro, and Slovenia. The Balkans hold a unique place in my own heart because of their Medieval cities, scenic landscapes, and varied cultures. Possibly the most alluring aspect about travel into the Balkans is that you can experience so much in such a geographical location. Southeastern Europe is frequently wrongly overlooked by travellers too eager to explore only the”big three,” Paris, London, and Rome. Balkan civilizations are diverse because of the number of civilizations have settled here over the centuries, which translates into a unique mix of gastronomies, architectures, and histories — in the crossroads between Europe and Asia.
Why Serbia and Bosnia?
My Path — Belgrade, Nis, Novi Sad, Sarajevo, Mostar & Banja Luka
What you can expect from Your Excursion
The Balkan Peninsula is composed of countries, a number of which are not actually a part of the peninsula, but are still lumped in from a cultural viewpoint. Of them, I will be seeing Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina come tomorrow, April 19th. I will be spending three weeks exploring cities, cities, castles, temples, ruins, local food, and museums for my guidebook and David’s Been Here web series series. Both will be my 57th and 58th states, respectively.
Serbia has ever been on my own bucket listing for many reasons (I almost moved there at one point!) Belgrade is regarded as the”Paris of the Balkans” because of its intimate architecture and cultural events. The reason behind its grandeur comes in the fact that is was the backing of the Republic of Yugoslavia. The money was therefore pumped to revitalizing town. I am a history buff, so that you can imagine how eager I am to stop by the birth nation of seven former Roman emperors, such as Constantine the Great. Serbia has many world-renowned wineries, castles, and UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Bosnia and Herzegovina has been a natural choice because it is a vibrant and young nation steadily coming out in the shadow of a war. People are offered a different type of European knowledge in the feeling of rolls throughout the food, culture, and architecture by sarajevo. The rest of the country follows suit, but includes some of this continent’s most amazing and fascinating Medieval towns . Another highlight will be a day in the Christian pilgrimage site of Medjugorje, where the Virgin Mary frequently appears to traffic.
