Don't make the mistake of overlooking the historic and surprising Balkans! These criminally underrated countries are often less expensive and less populated than their more popular western cousins. Explore beautiful Tirana (and its famous street art murals and serene parks and gardens) before making a pit stop at the iconic lakefront city of Ohrid en route to spectacular Skopje (where bustling bazaars and squares lead to historic fortress strongholds). This is a flexible vacation package. Select your number of nights in each city, desired hotel and activities.
Macedonia, formerly known as the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), is known for its long and eventful history, stretching back to the Bronze Age. It is known for its strong religious tradition, and there are hundreds of picturesque Orthodox cathedrals and mosques that are each distinctly beautiful. North Macedonia is known as having an underrated food culture, with an emphasis on farm-to-table cuisine and fresh produce. For as small as North Macedonia is compared to its Balkan neighbors, the geography is surprisingly varied here, home to Europe`s two oldest lakes and over 50 mountains higher than 6,000 feet.
Albania is well-known for its contributions to culture, which stretches back over two millennia. You can see artifacts and works of art created by the people who call Albania home in the country`s many museums, of which the Durrës Archaeological Museum and the National Art Gallery are two not to be missed. Albania`s beaches are very popular, ranging from the untouched and pristine to flashy and touristy. Finally, it can`t be ignored that Albania`s Communist-era history and relics set it apart even from other former Communist nations in Eastern Europe.
The package rates displayed are your total price per person based on Double Occupancy and your Arrival Date and Number of Nights selected. You can change details after selecting your travel date.
Your Preferred Major Airport:
Tirana, located in the center of Albania, is the country`s capital and home to one-sixth of Albania`s population. Tirana is Albania`s most important city with regard to politics, commerce, and culture. It is located on a plain next to Mount Dajt, and due to its geographical position it is among the sunniest places in the country. Multiple points of interest are located on or around Skanderbeg Square, the largest main square not just in Albania but in the entire Balkan region. Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights Must See`s: Skanderbeg Square, National Museum of History, Mount Dajt, Et'hem Bey Mosque, Pyramid of Tirana, Grand Park of Tirana, National Museum of Fine Arts, Fortress of Justinian, Resurrection Cathedral, and so much more!
Skopje is the capital and largest city of North Macedonia. This vibrant city is one of the oldest in the Balkans, having been settled for six millennia, but its glittering appearance is much newer. Much of Skopje was master-planned after a devastating 1963 earthquake, with green spaces and wide avenues placed at high priorities. The classical feel to the areas along the banks of the Vardar River and Macedonia Square are a result of a beautification campaign completed in 2014. Visit and discover the Macedonia Square, Skopje Fortress, Old Bazaar, Matka Canyon, Stone Bridge, Millennium Cross, Memorial House of Mother Teresa, Museum of Macedonia, Museum of the City of Skopje, Museum of the Macedonian Struggle, Macedonia Gate, and so much more.
