Because of the poor choices of the past, the inadequate approach to economy and probably most of all, the false politics and the constant dispute between neighboring countries the Balkan countries are not yet established as brands in European and worldwide tourism. Now, with things coming to the better end, these countriesare becoming the new travel destinations for many tourists. Exceptions of this problem are Croatia, Greece and Turkey, which are already well known travel destinations. So here are the top three emerging destinations on the Balkans:
Montenegro has recently gained its independence, and since then the country tourism is reaching new peaks. Montenegro is on the coast of the Mediterranean and it has great length of beaches varying from sandy to pebble beaches, most famous are the 25 beaches on the Budva’s Riviera. One of the main attractions of Budva is the island Sveti Nikola, there are threemain beaches and few small beautiful beaches accessible only by boat.
Albania is also on the Mediterranean, same as Montenegro it is located on the shores of the Adriatic Sea. The southern region of the country offers the beautiful Riviera of Saranda and the small but scenic islands of Ksamil, beautiful sandy beaches and blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. On these beaches you can taste specialties of fresh seafood for really low prices; the Albanian tourism is on a constant rise.
The Republic of Macedonia
The Republic of Macedonia takes the central place of the Balkan Peninsula. It is a country rich in history and culture. By visiting the city of Bitola you will experience the mix of many cultures and the spirit of many ages. Not far from Bitola is the city of Ohrid, located on the shores of the Ohrid Lake, it offers beautiful beaches but also many historical places to visit. In Ohrid there are 365 churches or as it can be said “one for every day of the year”.
