Eastern Europe

The sea, the mountains, and the stunning architecture, along with the fantastic diversity of its component countries and their incredible sense of culture and history, make this slice of Europe one of the most fascinating and unique destinations on the continent.

Think sunny white-sand beaches, villages stuck in a time warp, and modern cities whose fabulously photogenic medieval cores are replete with hip designer stores and edgy cafés. Then add snowy fairytale-like winters and romantic falls, lush never-ending forests, fantastic art, and a pulsing nightlife, and you have an unbeatable combination.

This is Eastern Europe, a land of glitter and dust, of charming medieval Old Townsand glamorous ports, of strong traditional values and sudden modernism. If you haven’t been, you better hurry up because tomorrow might be too late to experience today’s wonderfully contrasting mosaic of cultures and ethnicities.
