Culture, ancient and modern history, restaurants, shops: you can find almost everything in the beautiful and crowded Ragusa.

It looks like a lake but it’s a bay: well, a very special one, huge and surrounded by high mountains.
4 – Cetinje and Lovcen mountains (Montenegro)
From up here you can see almost all the Balkans and it’s so high you might think you are in heaven.

Lakes, rivers, caves: here you can find them all in the same place.

Slovenia has so many karst caves. Postojna is the most famous one, but Skocjan will really leave you breathless.
