Balkans Travel Advice
Make sure you are up-to-date with the pre-departure essentials before your trip to the Balkans.
Useful Tips for Balkans Tours
As the Balkans consists of 12 nations, you will deal with multiple currencies in your Balkans tour. Serbian
Dinar, Bosnia-Herzegovina Mark, Croatian Kuna, Albanian Lek, Macedonian Denar, and Euro (Montenegro,
Greece) are some of them.
We recommend that you wait until you go to the city center to change your money. Exchange rates are usually more favorable in the city.
ATMs are available and credit cards are widely accepted, except in some small shops and remote locations.
The Food Scene
The Balkans is famous for being a treasure trove of different tastes, all carrying a hint of Turkish, Persian, and Greek influences. You will find countless palate-pleasing dishes and appetizers across one of the world’s richest peninsulas.
Many Balkans recipes have meat and olive oil alternatives. Try dolma, ajvar, and banitsa, some of the most iconic dishes in the region.
All across Bulgaria, Serbia, Montenegro and the surrounding countries, a wide variety of wines will make their way into your daily menu. But perhaps the heartiest is raki, the calling-card spirit of the Balkans.
Are you traveling alone? You can stay in a single room if your accommodation in the Balkans countries has the single supplement option.
You can also choose to be roomed with a solo traveler of the same gender.
Feel free to contact your tour leader if you require assistance.
