Balkan Capitals Tour - Sofia-Skopje-Prishtina

10 Day Tour, from £875 per person

Combine the three lively capitals of Sofia, Skopje and Prishtina - an unusual combination but an interesting one nevertheless! An ideal holiday for the intrepid traveller. Start in Sofia, an attractive and still relatively unknown European city of tree lined boulevards and balconied buildings designed by 19th century Russian and Viennese architects, before moving on to Skopje.

Macedonia’s capital is an ideal city to explore on foot. Stroll across the Stone Bridge, built in the 15th century upon Roman foundations, into the old town, where national restaurants, museums, galleries and bars await exploration. The final stop is Prishtina, Kosovo’s young, friendly and dynamic capital. See 15th-century Fatih Mosque in the Old Town and visit Kosovo Museum. Join the locals and explore the paths and forest trails of leafy Germia in the hills to the east of town.

Price based on 3-star hotels and travel between each city on local coaches. For upgrades, private transfers by car and prices for 4-star or 5-star options, please speak to one of our Travel Specialists.
