A stunning destination located along the Adriatic Sea, Croatia is in southeast Europe. Known for famous waterfalls, red roofed villages, islands, and the home of King’s Landing, the capital of 7 Kingdoms from the popular TV series “Game of Thrones.” A popular destination among travelers attracted by its sheer natural beauty, warm sunny weather, lush green parks, stunning lakes, pristine beaches, and rich cultural and historical sites, Croatia is considered a new bucket list destination for many! You’ll also be visiting Slovenia, in Central Europe, which is known for its mountains, ski resorts and lakes. In Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital, baroque facades mix with the 20th-century architecture of native Jože Plečnik, whose iconic Tromostovje (Triple Bridge) spans the tightly curving Ljubljanica River. Montenegro is also on the itinerary! This Balkan country delights with rugged mountains, medieval villages, a narrow strip of beaches along its Adriatic coastline, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site Natural and Culturo-Historical Region.
