  • WHERE TO GO IN EASTERN EUROPE

    Albania

    Just 3 hours from the UK, Albania is still full of mysteries for most travellers. Shaped by centuries of Ottoman rule and later decades of communist rule under Enver Hoxha, Albania's tangled history is reflected in its diverse cuisine and dearly held traditions.

    The destination isn't just culturally interesting though: this beautiful country packs a lot of variety into a small area from the rugged mountains of the north to some of the Med's most undiscovered beaches along the rugged coastline.

    Romania

    Nearly twice the size of England, Romania is a land of wild beauty, attractive cities and cultural traditions.

    Between it's borders, you'll find the gorgeous peaks of the Carpathian Mountains contrasting with the flatlands of the Danube Delta. The modern capital of Bucharest is a lively city and the communist era architecture belies a warm hearted place full of excellent museums and great value restaurants.

    Kosovo

    Europe's newest country may only be small but it’s attractions are mighty.

    Despite Kosovo's difficult past, the future looks much brighter and you'll find a warm welcome in this hospitable country. Visit the Rugova Valley for stunning alpine views while Prizren is Kosovo's most attractive town; it's a lovely spot to simply wander around for a day or two.

    Moldova

    Europe's least visited country is wedged between Ukraine and Romania; two Eastern European powerhouses. But what Moldova lacks in size, it makes up for in surprises.

    Home to the world's largest wine cellar, a picture-perfect 14th Century monastery and a breakaway republic named Transnistria, Moldova is nothing if not quirky.

    Belarus

    Little-known Belarus abounds in surprises. Yes, you'll find Stalinist architecture throughout Minsk but you'll also find funky bars, delicious dining and a smattering of excellent museums.

    Outside of the capital city, the Belovezhskaya Pushcha National Park is home to a beautiful primeval forest and if you're lucky, you may spot European Bison.

    North Macedonia

    Tucked away into a corner of the Balkans, North Macedonia offers an off-the-beaten track experience often missing in Europe.

    Lake Ohrid is the country's gem and you could spend days gazing at its beautiful clear waters. Beyond the lake, Matka Canyon is close to Skopje but offers a lovely dose of nature.

    Ukraine

    Secreted behind the Iron Curtain for so long – Ukraine has most certainly hidden its lights under a bushel. Intrepid travellers exploring this fascinating country today will discover dramatic natural scenery, fascinating historical sites and unique culture and cuisine.
