Old Dubrovnik & Montenegro
We visit a number of UNESCO sites all with something different to offer. Our first is Dubrovnik - the pearl of the Adriatic - with outstanding monuments adorning the city as well as finely carved stone museums, monasteries and churches. Crossing the border into Montenegro, we spend time in the medieval town of Kotor which sits at the head of Southern Europe's deepest fjord and has an awe-inspiring mountainous backdrop. Durmitor National Park hosts canyons, gorges, caves and glacial lakes. We visit the famous Black Lake which is Montenegro's largest and deepest, and was formed by receding glaciers.


Bridge over the Drina
Our journey takes us into Serbia to the alpine museum bringing alive the culture and heritage of Old Serbian village life and the spectacular _argan Eight Railway, before we come to the famous bridge over the Drina which links Serbia and Bosnia Herzegovina and features in the Nobel Peace prize novel ""Na Drini Cuprija"", a story carrying hope and change for so many people.


Bosnia Herzegovina
After exploring the capital Sarajevo learning about its rich history and enjoying the colourful city market and churches, we spend time in the beautiful town of Mostar. The charming Old Bridge and Old Town have recently been restored and with its Ottoman, Mediterranean and western European architecture creating a unique fusion of styles, it fully deserves its UNESCO World Heritage status. Finally we head to the picturesque town of Trebinje situated on the Trebisnjica River.
