15 days

We start the trip in little Paris, as some called BUCAREST in the interwar period for its elite, neoclassical architecture, art deco and Bauhaus, a period that although with a tragic end, today exceeds and shows us its best past and current colors. We continue to CRAIOVA where we will stop at the Nicolae Romanescu Park, one of the largest parks in Europe, following towards KRALJEVO, the city of seven kings, already in Serbian territory and from there to Sarajevo, a city of great religious diversity, where Muslims, Catholics, Orthodox and Jews have been living together for centuries. Site of fundamental historical events, such as the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand that started the First World War, a city heavily besieged in the Second World War, and place of the SARAJEVO site by the former Yugoslavia between 1992 and 1996. military history does not do more than add to an incredible city in its diversity and intrigue at the time of visiting it. We will pass through MOSTAR the city of the bleeding bridge, another witness of the not to a distant war. this bridge will lead us to the Adriatic Sea where stone, sand, and water conceive a perfect mixture to take us to the different points that we will touch off the coast. Small fortified cities along with the deep blue of the Adriatic Sea: DUBROVNIK | SPLIT | ZADAR | BAŠKA. Places that have fallen in love and attracted filmmakers and been locations of countless films and series, from ORSON WELLS to GEORGE R.R. MARTIN from GAME OF THRONES. After enjoying the coast we move to another spectacle of nature that Croatia offers us, the PLITVICE lakes and its incredible waterfalls immersed in an exceptional park. We arrive at ZAGREB, capital of Croatia, which is situated on the hinge between the Adriatic coast and central Europe. A special place for those who like to walk through medieval streets, and even have more cosmopolitan centers, monumental buildings, churches, and unique cuisine. A market that opens every day offering the most varied things and entire streets dedicated to cafes, from there to BRATISLAVA to visit its castle on the banks of the Danube and we will finish in PRAGUE, the city of a hundred towers, with its incredible cobblestone streets, where we will lose many times in its medieval streets to depart. An intense journey for the XPLORA traveler.
