    Long Island and upstate New York – generally accepted as anywhere north of the NYC metro area – shouldn’t be missed. Long Island has cozy beach towns, while upstate is a dream destination for those who cherish the great outdoors. The Hudson River valley acts as an escape route from the city, leading eager sojourners north. From Albany, the 524-mile Erie Canal cuts due west to Lake Erie, passing spectacular Niagara Falls, Buffalo and Rochester. In the east you’ll find the St Lawrence River and its thousands of islands, as well as the magnificent Adirondack and Catskills mountains. Head to the middle of the state and you’ll be ensconced in the serene Finger Lakes.

    Epicenter of the arts. Dining and shopping capital. Trendsetter. New York City wears many crowns, and spreads an irresistible feast for all.

    Nexus of the Arts

    The Met, MoMA and the Guggenheim are just the beginning of a dizzying list of art-world icons. You’ll find museums devoted to everything from fin de siècle Vienna to immigrant life in the Lower East Side, and sprawling galleries filled with Japanese sculpture, postmodern American painting, Himalayan textiles and New York City lore. For a glimpse of current and future greats, delve into the cutting-edge galleries of Chelsea and the Lower East Side, with their myriad exhibition spaces and festive opening-night parties (usually Thursday night if you want to join in).

     

    Urban Wanderers

    With its compact size and streets packed with eye candy of all sorts – architectural treasures, Old World cafes, atmospheric booksellers – NYC is a wanderer’s delight. Crossing continents is as easy as walking a few avenues in this jumbled city of 200-plus nationalities. You can lose yourself in the crowds of Chinatown amid bright Buddhist temples and steaming noodle shops, then stroll up to Nolita for enticing boutiques and coffee-tasting. Every neighborhood offers a dramatically different version of the city, from the 100-year-old Jewish delis of the Upper West Side to the meandering cobblestone lanes of Greenwich Village. And the best way to experience it is to walk its streets.

    The Night Is Young

    When the sun sinks slowly beyond the Hudson and luminous skyscrapers light up the night, New York transforms into one grand stage. Well-known actors take to the legendary theaters of Broadway and world-class soloists, dancers and musicians perform at venues large and small across town. Whether high culture or low, New York embraces it all: in-your-face rock shows at Williamsburg dives, lavish opera productions at the Lincoln Center, and everything in between. This is a city of experimental theater, improv comedy, indie cinema, ballet, poetry, burlesque, jazz and so much more. If you can dream it up, it’s probably happening.

     

    Culinary Capital

    There’s never been a better time to dine in New York. It’s a hotbed of seasonal and locally sourced cuisine – with restaurants growing vegetables on roof gardens or upstate farms, sourcing meats and seafood from nearby sustainable outfits, and embracing artisanal everything, from coffee roasting and whiskey distilling to chocolate- and cheese-making. Bars have also taken creativity to new heights, with pre-Prohibition-era cocktails served alongside delectable small plates – indeed, gastropubs are some of the most creative places to eat these days. Of course, you can also hit a gourmet food truck or dine at one of the 20,000-plus sit-down restaurants.

    Brooklyn

    Forget Times Square and the Statue of Liberty – if you want to see the real New York, you need to head to Brooklyn. These days, the name is shorthand for ‘artsy cool’ the world over, but there’s far more here than hipster stereotypes. This sprawling borough (more than three times the size of Manhattan) is actually home to some of NYC’s most interesting, historic and culturally diverse neighborhoods, with singularly fantastic dining, drinking, shopping and entertainment options – not to mention some of the best river views in the five boroughs.

    Search out the grittier pockets of town where ugly-bland concrete walls have been transformed into colourful murals by local street artists. This city rewards those on foot.

    If your Mediterranean fantasies feature balmy days by sapphire waters in the shade of ancient walled towns, Croatia is the place to turn into reality.

    Afterwards, do as the locals do and head to a cafe. The cafe-culture here is just one facet of this city’s vibrant street life, egged on by a year-round swag of events that bring music, pop-up markets and food stalls to the plazas and parks. Even when there’s nothing on, the centre thrums with youthful energy so it’s no surprise that Croatia’s capital is now bringing in the city-break crowd. Zagreb is the little city that could.

     

    Beauty on the Inside

    Shift your gaze for just a moment from the glittering waters and chances are an almighty mountain will loom into view. The Dinaric Alps, which stretch all the way from Italy to Albania, hug much of the coast. The limestone karst has bequeathed a wonderland of craggy peaks, caverns, river canyons, waterfalls and ridiculously picturesque lakes. Head further inland and things flatten out again into rolling farmland. Active types will find plenty of chances to get among it on the numerous hiking and biking trails, while the more adventurous can have a go at rock climbing, rafting and zip-lining.

     

    Cultural Feast

    If you’re lucky enough to cross the tourist/guest barrier and be invited into a local’s home, you’ll soon become acquainted with the refrain ‘Jedi! Jedi! Jedi!’ (Eat! Eat! Eat!). Sharing food and drink plays a big part in the culture here, which speaks both to the nature of Croatian hospitality and to the quality of local produce. Simple home-style cooking is a feature of family-run taverns, but increasingly a new breed of chefs are bringing a more adventurous approach to the table. Meanwhile, Croatian wines and olive oils are making their mark on the world stage, garnering top awards.

    High on History

    Bismarck and Marx, Einstein and Hitler, JFK and Bowie, they’ve all shaped – and been shaped by – Berlin, whose richly textured history confronts you at every turn. This is a city that staged a revolution, was headquartered by Nazis, bombed to bits, divided in two and finally reunited – and that was just in the 20th century! Walk along remnants of the Berlin Wall, marvel at the splendour of a Prussian palace, visit Checkpoint Charlie or stand in the very room where the Holocaust was planned. Berlin is like an endlessly fascinating 3D textbook where the past is very much present wherever you go.

     

    Party Paradise

    Forget about New York – Berlin is the city that truly never sleeps. Sometimes it seems as though Berliners are the lotus-eaters of Germany, people who love nothing more than a good time. The city’s vast party spectrum caters for every taste, budget and age group. From tiny basement clubs to industrial techno temples, chestnut-canopied beer gardens to fancy cocktail caverns, saucy cabarets to ear-pleasing symphonies – Berlin delivers hot-stepping odysseys, and not just after dark and on weekends but pretty much 24/7. Pack your stamina!

    Cultural Trendsetter

    When it comes to creativity, the sky’s the limit in Berlin, which is one of Europe’s big start-up capitals. In the last 20 years, the city has become a giant lab of cultural experimentation thanks to a spirit that nurtures and encourages new ideas as well as to once abundant space and cheap rent. Although the last two of these are definitely a thing of the past. Top international performers still grace Berlin’s theatre, concert and opera stages; international art-world stars like Olafur Eliasson and Jonathan Meese make their home here; and Clooney and Hanks shoot blockbusters in the German capital. Highbrow, lowbrow and everything in between – there’s plenty of room for the full gamut of cultural expression.

    Living History

    İstanbul’s strategic location has attracted many marauding armies over the centuries. The Greeks, Romans and Venetians took turns ruling before the Ottomans stormed into town and decided to stay – physical reminders of their various tenures are found across the city. The fact that the city straddles two continents wasn’t its only drawcard – it was the final stage on the legendary Silk Road linking Asia with Europe, and many merchants who came here liked it so much that they, too, decided to stay. In so doing, they gave the city a cultural diversity that it retains to this day.

     

    Art & Architecture

    The conquering armies of ancient times tended to ransack the city rather than endow it with artistic treasures, but all that changed with the Byzantines, who adorned their churches and palaces with mosaics and frescoes. Miraculously, many of these remain. Their successors, the Ottomans, were quick to launch an ambitious building program and the magnificently decorated imperial mosques that resulted are architectural triumphs that together form one of the world’s great skylines. In recent years, local banks and business dynasties have reprised the Ottomans’ grand ambitions and endowed an impressive array of galleries, museums and festivals for all to enjoy.

    This magical meeting place of East and West has more top-drawer attractions than it has minarets (and that’s a lot).

    Culinary Heritage

    ‘But what about the food?’ we hear you say. We’re happy to report that the city’s cuisine is as diverse as its heritage, and delicious to boot. Locals take their eating and drinking seriously – the restaurants here are the best in the country. You can eat aromatic Asian dishes or Italian classics if you so choose, but most visitors prefer to sample the succulent kebaps, flavoursome mezes and freshly caught fish that are the city’s signature dishes, washing them down with the national drink, rakı (aniseed brandy), or a glass or two of locally produced wine.

     

    Local Life

    Some ancient cities are the sum of their monuments, but İstanbul factors a lot more into the equation. Chief among its manifold attractions are the locals, who have an infectious love of life and generosity of spirit. This vibrant, inclusive and expanding community is full of people who work and party hard, treasure family and friendships, and have no problem melding tradition and modernity in their everyday lives. Joining them in their favourite haunts – çay bahçesis (tea gardens), kahvehans (coffeehouses), meyhanes (Turkish taverns) and kebapçıs (kebap restaurants) – will be a highlight of your visit.

    BALCHIK

     

    Set up on white limestone rocks, Balchik is called also the White city, The first thing that comes to the visitor’s mind when mentioned Balchik, is the Palace, with its Botanic Garden with its collection of 250 big cactus species, which is the second of its kind after the one in Monaco belonging, in earlier times, to Rumanian Queen Maria Alexandrina Victoria of Edinburgh. Typical Mediterranean plants, rare and exotic species and a whole army of cacti are sheltered in the garden. The forms and silhouettes of the buildings, the diversity and medley of their gardens- all this melts in one unique Balkan romantic symphony, so attractive for guests from all over the world.

     

    KAVARNA

    Is a modern town with good infrastructure and its develop rapidly. In the last few years Kavarna became the uncontested rock-music capital of Bulgaria after successfully organizing a rock festival, which very quickly turned into tradition. There was a settlement dating back to the times BC- excavation works reveala lost Byzantine city and a total of 147 Thracian tombs are scattered around the vicinities of Kavarna. On the beach there is a cave with well-preserved frescoes from the Stone Age.

     

    KALIAKRA CAPE

    The cape stretches 2km out of sea, looking very much like an isthmus, surrounded by crimson cliffs with height of up to 70m. The Kaliakra Cape was declared a protected area in 1941 so that to protect the unique nature of this place. There are steppe here and it is a habitat of monk seals.

Sunny Beach is never asleep – it is the place most favoured by young people for offering them enormous attractions – restaurants, bars, discos, night-clubs round the clock.

     

    NESSEBUR

    Situated on a small peninsula, one of the oldest towns in Europe still keeps the spirit of different ages and peoples – Thracians, Hellenes, Romans, Slavs, Byzantines and Bulgarians. Nesebar is sometimes said to be the town with the highest number of churches per capita. Although this might not be true, their number and variety is impressive: the Old Bishopric or the Church of St. Sophia is in an early Byzantine style (4th-5th c.); the New Bishopric (St. Stefan), contains valuable 12th century murals; and the Christ Pantocrator and Aliturgetos churches (13th-14th c.) are among the best preserved until today. Nesebar’s National Revival houses with stone foundations and broad wooden eaves, overhanging narrow cobbled lanes leading right into the sea, are also remarkably beautiful.

     

    POMORIE

    Pomorie Is located on Rocky peninsula, extending some 5 km into the sea.In its region is the Pomorie lake, an ultrasaline natural lagoon, which yelds 30,000 tons of sea salt per year.

    Living History

    magine a provincial city that suddenly becomes the capital of the new, independent country. What’s more, the country is still a disputable territory under the observation of international forces hence often in the spotlight.

     

    That’s the story of Pristina, Kosovo – a newborn capital.

     

     

    Local Life

    Coffee in Pristina is the best, hands down. Everyone thinks so and even me, who is not so crazy about coffee, can vouch for it. With the prices starting at 1€ (and 2-2,5€ for the most expensive coffee in the menu) you can be sure Pristina is pure heaven for every coffee lover!

    Living History

    The fortified, coastal town of Kotor, Montenegro is guaranteed to leave quite an impression, whether you’re making a quick pit stop during a Balkans road trip, visiting for the day as part of a cruise, or are lucky enough to have a few days to properly explore.

     

    Art & Architecture

    Easily one of the most beautiful spots in the Adriatic, its medieval old town is picture-perfect from all angles thanks to the cluster of orange terracotta rooftops nestled at the bottom of a lush green hill, framed by dramatic cliff sides and the sparkling, smooth-as-glass Bay of Kotor.

    If you can manage to tear yourself away from the picturesque old town, another way to visit Kotor is touring around the serene Bay of Kotor.

    Heritage

    Kotor dates back to the Middle Ages, and its preserved centre has earned it a spot on UNESCO’s World Natural and Historical Heritage Site list. Visitors love ambling through the maze of cobblestone streets and hidden passageways that wind past stone churches, restaurants and boutiques, gazing out at the nearby islands from a rooftop perch, tackling the steep trail to get up to the fortress or simply people watching at an outdoor cafe. Sure it can get busy when the cruise crowds show up, and summer traffic on the outskirts is nothing to scoff at, but it’s still remarkably easy to find peace and quiet by simply wandering a block or two off the main streets and suddenly finding yourself in a place that feels like time has stood still.

     

    San Jovani’s castle

    It’s only 1,350 steps to the top…easy, right? Not so much, but while the climb up to one of the most popular Kotor attractions isn’t for the faint of heart it’s definitely worth the effort. The imposing Castle of San Giovanni (also known as St. John’s Fortress) is perched 280 metres above Stari Grad, serving up mind-blowing, panoramic views of the stunning bay below. First built during Illyrian times, it has been rebuilt throughout the centuries, withstood multiple earthquakes and scared off many a would-be intruder. Today, visitors are welcome to wander among its grass-covered ruins and marvel at the scene below, making the fortress one of the top things to see in Kotor.

     

     

    https://thebalkanjourneys.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/zagreb-2133033_1920-640x480.jpg
    Living History

    The impressions of many foreigners who live in Zagreb, business people and tourists can be summed up in a single sentence: a large city which managed to stay romantic and safe. There are unlimited possibilities for visiting music and theatre events, art exhibitions, museums, sporting events and enjoying pleasant walks, interesting architecture, plentiful parks in the centre of the city, pedestrian zones and the atmosphere.

     

    Art & Architecture

    Spacious pedestrian zones with many open cafes with garden and street terraces scattered all over the city add to the charm of Zagreb hospitality. The largest number of cultural and other institutions is located in the centre of the city, on a relatively small area where everything is within walking distance.

    Zagreb is the city of international fairs, conventions, business meetings as well as sporting events..

    Parks 

    Zagreb has around 30 attractive parks, spreading over the area larger than 400,000 square meters. Among the most representative ones is the so-called Lenuzzi Horseshoe or the Green Horseshoe – a complex of seven squares which frame the downtown area with their parks and green areas in the shape of the letter U. It is also important to mention Maksimir Park and forest with the Zoo, green areas like Jarun recreational centre, Bundek Lake and Sljeme, the highest peak of Medvednica Mountain.

     

    Night Life

    Today, Zagreb has many discotheques, clubs, pubs, beer halls and lounge bars, night clubs and cocktail bars, several jazz clubs, plenty of cafes and restaurants which, among other things, also offer good entertainment. Those who prefer trying their luck can have fun in the city’s casinos.

     

    The centre of the city is the liveliest area, but the atmosphere is also good at “Zagreb’s sea” – Jarun Lake – where nightlife that can be compared to much more vaunted destinations, thanks to its many clubs and bars.

    Living History

    Athens is the historical capital of Europe, with a long history, dating from the first settlement in the Neolithic age. In the 5th Century BC (the “Golden Age of Pericles”) – the culmination of Athens’ long, fascinating history – the city’s values and civilization acquired a universal significance. Over the years, a multitude of conquerors occupied Athens, and erected unique, splendid monuments – a rare historical palimpsest. In 1834, it became the capital of the modern Greek state and in two centuries since it has become an attractive modern metropolis with unrivalled charm.

     

    Art & Architecture

    A large part of the town’s historic centre has been converted into a 3-kilometre pedestrian zone (the largest in Europe), leading to the major archaeological sites (“archaeological park”), reconstructing – to a large degree – the ancient landscape.

    The Acropolis of Athens and its monuments are universal symbols of the classical spirit and civilization and form the greatest architectural and artistic complex bequeathed by Greek Antiquity to the world.

    Culinary Heritage

    The “heart” of the historical centre is the traditional commercial neighborhood, with more than 2,500 shops of all kinds, which spreads out over the streets surrounding Ermou Street (the city’s best-known commercial street).  The western “border” of the area is Athinas Street, where the foodstuff commerce is concentrated, reminding one strongly of the Middle East.  Here are situated, among others, the neoclassical mansions of the Town Hall, the Municipal Market (where meat, fish and vegetables are sold) and spacious Kotzias Square.

     

    Views

    Thanks to its rich morphology Athens has plenty of places where you can admire stunning panoramic views of the city. Romantic or not, let yourself be captivated by the Athenian cityscape as seen from above.
