Backpacking in Eastern Europe: Former Yugoslavia

Backpacking in Eastern Europe Former Yugoslavia 1

All suggested that cities screenplay by backpacking of Eastern Europe were part of the now defunct Yugoslavia. Keep in mind that none of the five are megalopolises, anthills of tourist or bells. Are urban centres Yes, but modest and with more features of European city of medium and small businesses, and clean air and more quiet to sleep practically guaranteed.

In relation to Croatia, the cities chosen here are not part of the area super touristy-South. Maybe with the exception of Zadar, they are not on the usual tourist circuit by foreigners.

Backpacking to 15 days for the former Yugoslavia

Belgrade, Zagreb, Zadar, Rijeka and Ljubljana

Start the trip with backpack by Belgrade, capital of Serbia, reported by MEDICINELEARNERS. I love to travel to European countries that are not part of the European Union to see how the other side lives. And that is very clear in this place, that suffers the consequences of the economic sanctions imposed on the basis of the Yugoslav war, which occurred in late 1990. But it’s not all tears. Although not the focus of external investments and the like, the country is improving slowly – and have greatly improved in recent years, according to the proud locals I talked to. Three days is enough to know the main points of interest. I was in a very good hostel called Indigo Hostel, whose private room (and cheap) is well separated from the other rooms. That is, you don’t hear the zunzunzun of people coming and going in the morning. We have a post about things to do in Belgrade, be sure to check!

Follow trip to Zagreb, capital of Croatia, by bus or train. A lot of people, when you go to this country, nor passes through your political center, because you’re in search of its beaches and natural beauties. But the city has much to offer. To start, I liked beer (!) until today I drank there, in the pub Medvedgrad. There are four units of it in the city and the food is also very good. Stay three days and allow one to visit the Plitvice Lakes National Park (featured image).

Go to Zadar, also in Croatia, by bus. Stay three days and take one to make the boat trip through the National Park Kornati. When I went, I was in the B & B Kolega Guest House and super indico. Its location is perfect, it’s super clean, helpful owner and tasteful to indicate restaurants. Of which he suggested, quite liked the Konoba Stomorica (Stomorica ulica, 12) and the Bruschetta (Mihovila Pavlinovića, 12 Ulica). Be sure to walk through the historical centre: had I felt on the set of Game of Thrones (#nerdisse). Also go to the beach Kolovare and sea organ.

Continue the trip by bus towards Rijeka, still in Croatia, and stay three days. Because it’s a city very close to Italy and in light of the history of the place, many of its inhabitants speak Italian, which can come in handy. The city is full of small beaches in your coast. Among those that did, I liked the Sablićevo and the Ploče, which has a great infrastructure with coffee, snack bar, swimming pool, restrooms and restaurants. Plan your days to allow time to visit the city of Opatija and to climb the steps of the staircase that reaches 561 to Trsat Castle (one of the oldest fortifications on the coast of the country).

Finally, take the bus to Ljubljana, capital of Slovenia and take her at least three days. I stayed in the Adoc Hostel whose location is right in the center of town (where cars are not allowed). This hostel seemed more like a hotel simpler, due to the size (it is quite large) and your large amount of private rooms. Set aside a full day to visit the city of Bled and, once there, be sure to visit the island in the middle of the Lake and the Vintgar Gorge. The places to eat, I remember having loved two: the Case Violina (for lunch and dinner) and the Cacao-a super cute and coffee delicious pies.

Going on a trip? Travel insurance is mandatory in dozens of countries in Europe and can be required at the time of immigration. In addition, it is important in any trip. See how to get insurance with the best cost/benefit and guarantee promotions.
