Each of the Balkan countries is amazing in terms of history, scenery, food and entertainment. Everyone knows the Croatian resort of Dubrovnik, but it's not the only place where you can spend an unforgettable holiday.

Most countries have a sea coastline, so they offer many opportunities for recreation. A selection of the best destinations for tourists was published by The Telegraph.

Croatia

The Croatian coastline can easily fascinate - 1,100 miles if you count only the mainland, and another 2,520 miles if you take into account the numerous islands.

In addition to Dubrovnik, you should visit Split, its great rival, as majestic as you would expect from a place whose old town is built around the walls of a Roman emperor's palace.

Montenegro

Since its return as an independent state in 2006 (it had previously been joined to its larger neighbour to form Serbia and Montenegro), Montenegro has positioned itself as Croatia's attractive beachside neighbour, thanks to 182 miles of its own magnificent Adriatic coastline. The towns on the coast - Bar, Budva, Kotor - are still framed by their Venetian fortifications and are unrivalled in photogenic beauty.

Slovenia

In the north-west of the region, Slovenia often feels more like a part of Central Europe than the Balkans. This is due to the fact that it borders Italy and Austria. Ljubljana is one of the smallest and most attractive capitals in Europe. The Škocjan Caves, which are listed as "exceptional" by UNESCO, are also worthy of note.

Serbia

The dark horse of the region, tucked away in the heart of the peninsula, Serbia deserves a closer look for those who don't need a beach to feel like they're on holiday. The capital city, Belgrade, is one of the oldest in Europe and has a wealth of Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman and Yugoslav heritage.

North Macedonia

This tiny state has had its own little identity crisis over the past few years. In 2018, it agreed to add the "North" part to its name. But whatever the exact wording, this landlocked state is one of the least recognised destinations in Europe. At the same time, it offers absolutely unforgettable landscapes and experiences.
