27 Must-Visit Ex-Yugoslavia Destinations in the Balkans

The Balkans are a fascinating region to explore in Europe due to its beauty as well as turbulent history. When we talk about the Balkans area, if you're a history buff like I am, it is hard to ignore the most recent conflict in the region, especially in ex-Yugoslavia countries, throughout the 1990s.

One of the most diverse regions in Europe, there was a price to pay for its diversity that ended with wars, bombings, and genocide. I used to date a Balkan guy in my early 20s, and I remember one thing he said about the region: “Yugoslavia. We're now basically split into seven countries who are similar in one way, but very different in the other ways to the point that we just end up hating each other.”

So in this post, in collaboration with other fellow travel bloggers, we're going to give you a glimpse of each ex-Yugoslavia destination you must visit on your trip to the Balkans. Because despite all the things that occurred in the region in the past, today you can learn a lot from what happened. And more importantly, you can now explore the beauty of each country peacefully.
