Welcome to Old Europe - remote, unexploited and unspoiled. With cobblestone streets, Roman ruins, cosmopolitan cities, quaint towns, medieval monasteries and castles, UNESCO sites and pristine nature.

Bulgaria, Macedonia and Albania are easily some of Europe's last, mostly unexplored gems. We also visit Kosovo, the youngest country of Europe, and Corfu (Greece).

After exploring the 5,000 year old cosmopolitan capital city Sofia, with its wide boulevards and grand churches, we travel to the city of Plovdiv, one of Europe's oldest cities. Visit Asenovgrad Castle, a medieval fortress in the Bulgarian Rhodope Mountains.

In Macedonia, visit Heraclea, founded in the 4th century BC. In Ohrid, we visit its beautiful lake and famous monastery on its shores.

In Kosovo we visit Prizren, one of the loveliest towns in the Balkans dating back to the Turkish era. We then continue to Albania, where we enjoy scenic drives to magnificent Roman ruins, including the ancient cities of Berat and Butrint.

Relax and savor the atmosphere on the beautiful Greek island of Corfu on the Ionian Sea.

Bulgaria, Macedonia, Kosovo and Albania offer the perfect off-the-beaten track adventure in seldom traveled Eastern Europe.
