Dubrovnik; The Pearl of the Adriatic

It was G. Bernard Shaw, the Irish playwright, who once said “those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik”. For those who have visited, these words would seem far from an exaggeration. The medieval city is as stunning as the clear blue sea that surrounds the city’s walls. As the sun gleams onto the lime-stone buildings and terracotta roofs, enjoy this beautiful vista whilst walking along the ancient walls. Once known as Ragusa with a population of over 120,000. The city suffered heavily during the siege of 1991 and 1992, at the hands of the Yugoslav People’s Army. Having being repaired and restructured, this tranquil city, is now at the forefront of Croatia’s ever-growing tourism industry. As well as this, why not take the cable car up Mt Srđ to enjoy breathtaking views of the Old Town and the Elaphiti Islands that surround the city.

Vineyards of Dalmatia

An ancient Dalmatian proverb states that “a fish must swim three times – in the sea to begin with, then in olive oil and finally in wine”. So it is only right that we delve deep into Dalmatian wine country for a day of spectacular scenery and incredible tasting. Dalmatians have been perfecting the art of wine-making for thousands of years, making use of their limestone-laden fields to produce wines that are heavenly. You can taste the salty Adriatic, the chalky karst-filled earth, and the Mediterranean sun all in one sip. To discover this, we go venture towards the scenic peninsula of Pelješac that stretches out like a finger into the sea. Here, see the picturesque vineyards cling to rocky slopes as we head towards to Korčula, an island steeped in history.

Bridging Old and New; Bosnia & Herzegovina

Enjoy a day excursion to the stunningly scenic Bosnia & Herzegovina. A country where East meets West, Ottomans meet Habsburgs. Probably most notoriously recognised for its capital, Sarajevo, playing the setting for the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand, an event that led to the outbreak of World War 1, and for the heartbreaking civil war of the 1990s. However, despite the turmoil this country has been through, the captivating natural beauty outweighs the scars of human intervention. Mostar, the largest city in Herzegovina, is a city that showcases this contrast. Featuring Turkish-era stone architecture in the Ottoman Quarter, the enchanting old town is further supplemented by the backdrop of beautiful mountains. However, it is the the world-famous Stari Most (old bridge) that brings the tourists flocking to Mostar. built between 1557 and 1566 on the orders of Suleiman the Magnificent, it is truly a feat of engineering magnificence. Rebuilt using 16th-century building techniques and stone sourced from the original quarry, after suffering damages during conflict in 1993, the bridge reopened in 2004 to become an UNESCO World Heritage site. A symbol of recovery from war for a truly charming place.

See this beautiful stretch of land that features some of the most remarkable natural scenery as well the most incredible architecture in world.
