Ljubljana is a charming city that often feels more like a small town. It is easy to settle into its many cosy streets or have enjoyable strolls along its river lined with impressive Austrian style buildings. It will entice you with its appealing and welcoming feel. Not far away is the jaw dropping splendour of Lake Bled, which is an absolute must for all travelling through Slovenia.
The Croatian coast is one of the most beautiful sights I’ve seen as is the attractive city of Split, with its promanandes along the waters edge. Hvar is a beautiful peaceful island where you just want to relax and let the world pass you by. As this was towards the end of my journey, I was rushing from place to place and only got a brief look at these wonderful places, so this is another photo post.
If I had the name one city my favourite on my trip it would be close but I’d say Dubrovnik. It is simply jaw-droopingly amazing.

From the bustling markets to the glistening river to the great views atop its surrounding hills, Sarajevo has a great atmosphere. However, the scars of war are still visible, with bullet ridden buildings and mortar craters on the footpaths.

Belgrade is the gritty capital of Serbia. Its streets are lined with potholes and decaying apartments. If you like large Communist apartment blocks you’ll love Belgrade because they’re everywhere. However, in a strange way these add to the city’s charm. It’s a city with character. After all isn’t the point of travel to see different places? If you want prosperity stay at home.
