TRA 158 The Balkans: A Lesser Known Europe

Course Description

On our tour we traverse the mountainous Balkan Peninsula – a picturesque region of outstanding physical beauty and great cultural and ethnic diversity. We trace the history of medieval Europe and diverse nationalities originating in Serbia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, Croatia and Bosnia & Herzegovina.

The region has had a long, colorful and often violent history. It had been a part of powerful and famous empires, from the Greeks, Romans and Byzantines to the Ottomans and Austro-Hungarians, for a period spanning several millennia.  It is also an area of rapid political and economic change, which has accelerated during the past two decades since the fall of communism.
