The months of June and August invite flocks of tourists to the southern regions of Europe. But if you want to experience destinations in a unique way, September to November are the best months to visit.
If you are planning your fall vacation, this short guide will make you see why the Balkans is the perfect destination for the autumn sun.
Season of Festivals
Just so you know, September and October have lots of events, concerts, and festivals that are guaranteed to keep visitors entertained during their stay in the region. There are lots of cultural treats you can include in your itinerary, including the Late Summer Festival in Dubrovnik, the Biennial of Design in Ljubljana, and the Jazz Fest in Sarajevo held in November.
Most travellers prepare a checklist of attractions and places they want to experience and visit during their fall vacation in the Balkans. Unfortunately, it only means that many of these tourists will find their way to the same must-visit spots.
Bigger crowds often take away from the enjoyment and fun of visiting a beautiful part of nature or a gorgeous historic site. At the beginning of September, the numbers of visitors drop dramatically, which means that travellers will have more breathing space to take in the sceneries of Lake Ohrid, Perast, Plitvice National Park, and Lake Bled.
For certified foods with a discerning palate, visiting Croatia in September and October gives you the perfect chance to sample truffles, one of the finest delicacies in the world. The country’s Istrian region serves as the home to some of the world’s best truffles.
Every year, the towns and villages in the area also hold festivals and events to celebrate this renowned produce. Istria’s Truffle Days run from September 9 to November 10 where visitors enjoy the opportunity to take a bite of the different forms of this luxury fungus and other delish local produce.
Visitors to the Balkans can also get more value for their money from the month of September through November. The prices for flights and private or hotel accommodations are often cheaper during autumn in this European region.
You can look forward to having a 4 to 5-star hotel experience at a great deal to make your stay even more memorable. Just make sure that you regularly check out different accommodation and hotel providers to ensure the highest quality and snag the best deals so you can get the best out of your budget.
As the average temperatures for Ljubljana and Dubrovnik hit 16 and 22 degrees Celsius in September, you can expect that you will get as much autumn sun as you want to get your dose of vitamin D without suffering exhaustion because of the high heat that scorches the months of July to August. It gives travellers a chance to see and do more than they would often during peak season.
Visit the Balkans and experience the autumn sun at its finest!
