Greece

Greece is THE land of ancient sites and architectural treasures: the Acropolis in Athens, the amphitheater of Epidaurus, the reconstructed palace at Knossos, the belly button of the cosmos at Delphi, fallen columns galore on the sacred island of Delos, and frescoed Minoan palaces on Crete. But don't expect a visit there to be a sober study of the ancient world, the Greek propensity for partying dates back to Dionysus. Then there are 1400 islands to explore. Greece is much more than what you were taught at school or the predictable summer image of glorious sunsets and sandy beaches.

Bulgaria

Bulgaria is known for its rich history, which stretches back over 6,000 years and is on display everywhere you look, ranging from sacred religious buildings with beautiful architectural styles and colorful art to the hundreds of fortresses and historic ruins, from which some famous legends and myths were born. Bulgaria is one of the most popular beach destinations in Europe, with hundreds of miles of glittering coastline. It`s also known for its winter sporting opportunities in some of the most glamorous and affordable ski resorts east of Switzerland.
