Your 2 days Balkan journey:

We begin our tour at 8:00 from Sofia with a relaxed scenic drive to the West along the Balkan range (Stara planina or Old mountain) to the Serbian-Bulgarian border and in about 2 hours we reach the beautiful historic town of Nis. We will explore the city's heritage and we will have lunch in some restaurant in the old part. After another stroll around the main street and park, we will continue our road trip south to Macedonia and stay the night there.

The next morning after a good breakfast we will pay a visit to Skopje's center and highlights. Then we will enjoy a short chair lift ride to the nearby mountain of Vodno, from where you can enjoy a wonderful view over the city of Skopje. The place also offers a beautiful restaurant. After a nice lunch we will proceed with a 4 hour trip back to Sofia.
