One of the most visited tourist destinations in Europe, the Adriatic Mountains stretch from the modern-day Croatian seacoast of Vis and Vratovic to Bosporus and beyond. The Adriatic Tourist Area (also known as the “Adriatic Coast”) is a long chain of islands and peninsula enclaves that serve as a gateway into the Adriatic Sea. This group of islands connects Italy to the ancient Greek Islands as well as to the lands beyond the Black Sea. As a result, there is no other more beautiful place to travel to on your Mediterranean cruise than the Adriatic Mountains.
Because of its unique topography, the Adriatic Mountains often acts as the gateway to the best scenery in the region. Many travelers take advantage of this and plan trips to several of the smaller mountain towns along the way. While each of the towns is a delight in its own right, some travelers may wish to consider a closer trek up to the highest points in the mountains. Fortunately, several guided mountain climbing trips are available all throughout the year.
One of the most scenic journeys available through the Adriatic is to the town of Ebensee. Founded in 870 BC, the original settlement of Ebensee was home to a Temple of Artemis that was later transformed into an art museum and Roman basilica. Today, visitors can still marvel at the exterior architecture and take in the beautiful gardens found within.
Along with Ebensee, travelers should consider a trip to the town of Sibenik. Founded in 710, Sibenik is one of the few towns along the Adriatic coast that have not fallen victim to the waves of tourism. Instead, the town has enjoyed a century of relative stability. Sibenik is a great place for a nature walk, especially if you like to spend time looking out onto the horizon and at the clear waters of the Adriatic. Sibenik is also where you might want to visit for a unique and interesting cultural experience.
For a more adventurous trip, consider taking a ride into the mountains of the former Yugoslavia. Prijerencies are convertible from English to Serbo-Croatian, before you head into the forested mountains on your trip. While you are enjoying yourself on your excursion, you can relax by the river or sit at one of the guesthouses. The currency exchange will likely be conducted in Bosnian Euros. The Serbs are a tight knit community that will not bother you if you do not purchase something or drink alcoholic beverages while traveling on your trip to Ebeneze.
Before you leave on your trip to Ebeneze, it is a good idea to visit Beles, which lies just to the south of the resort city of Ebeneze. Beles serves as a safe haven for Bosnian Muslims who have fled to Beles to escape violence in their native country. Many of these Muslims will be roaming the streets and begging for money or a hand job. While in Beles, it would be a good idea to join up with one of the many Bosnian Croats that live in the area.
