Traveling with Atlas Obscura amid COVID-19 How We’re Adapting Our Trips Destination Requirements (via Embassy Pages)
Trip Overview

Experience a dramatic road trip filled with history and heritage as you travel across Serbia, Croatia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina in search of lasting memories of Yugoslav legacy. Visit fortresses and skyscrapers, ruined factories, and extraordinary works of Modernist architecture. This journey through the Balkans pays particular attention to the monuments of Yugoslavia – raised to commemorate the deeds of anti-fascist partisans and revolutionaries or to mark places of historic trauma – and takes an organic and pluralist approach to the complicated history of the region.

  • See and photograph extraordinary architectural monuments
  • Take in breathtaking mountain scenery and natural wonders
  • Visit three capital cities - Belgrade, Sarajevo & Zagreb - and appreciate their modern vibrancy
  • Explore underground tunnels, stay in retro socialist hotels, dig into local cuisines
  • Hear from a range of guest speakers with diverse perspectives on complex histories


Itineraries and daily schedules are subject to change. We expect to do everything listed in the itinerary, though the order may be rearranged based on weather or other local conditions.

The listed price of the trip is per person based on double occupancy.

Traveling Solo?

You’re in good company. Solo travelers typically make up about half of our small groups. With curiosity at the center of our experiences, there’s a natural camaraderie that develops over the course of a trip. We have two options for you:

Shared Room (subject to the latest Covid-19 guidelines): You'll be matched with another solo traveler of the same gender.

Private Room: Have your own room, subject to availability, for a supplemental cost of $940. When booking, please select the single room package option.

Arrival & Departure

This trip begins and ends in Belgrade, Serbia. Belgrade has one of the best-connected airports in the Balkans. You should plan to arrive by 4:00 p.m. on Day 1 as we will meet at 7:30 p.m. in the lobby of the hotel, ready to head out to a nearby restaurant for our first meal together. You may plan your departing flight for any time on Day 13.

Activity Level

This trip is suitable for guests of all ages (18 and above) and is not very physically strenuous—just be sure to pack your walking shoes, your flashlight, and your sense of adventure. Be aware that this trip also involves a good amount of driving time, so dress for comfort.


Sometimes we’ll stay at modern 4-star resorts, while other nights we’ll be immersed in retro hospitality at Brutalist 1970s hotels. Some of these buildings are as interesting as any monument we’ll see. 


Over the course of these 13 days, we’ll travel more than 2,200 kilometers (1,367 miles) and through three very different countries. We'll have our own private bus for the journey, a modern, air-conditioned vehicle with a professional driver.
