Summary

Like the most gripping of history books, stories abound in this fascinating region. We explore the Croatian capital, Zagreb, where Austro-Hungarian and socialist buildings stand side by side. In Belgrade, we visit President Tito’s grand mausoleum. In Sarajevo, we see Principe Bridge, site of the 1914 assassination of Archduke Ferdinand and in Mostar we witness the impressive post-conflict restoration efforts. On the sparkling Adriatic coast, we meander around historic Budva. Our story concludes in Dubrovnik, with its spectacularly photogenic old town.
