Cruises to the Balkans
 

The Balkans has many first-class tourist attractions and the fact that The Balkans shares the Adriatic Sea with Italy means lots of water activities.
 

  • Zagreb - The first stop on Balkan odyssey is Zagreb; it is a Croatian city that has many unique attractions for a tourist to visit. The Museum of Broken Relationships is devoted to artifacts and stories about failed love affairs and how the crestfallen have expressed their sadness through art and pictures. St. Mark’s Church is a cathedral that you don’t want to miss. This medieval-style church dates back hundreds of years and is a testament to the faith that Yugoslavians have in God. If you want a birds-eye view of the countryside around Zagreb, take in the Zagreb Funicular and Lotrscak Tower and you will be able to see the beautiful views of the area that is a lush green tract of scenery. Another stunning piece of architecture is the Cathedral of Zagreb. It is an early 12-century, neo-gothic church that towers over the city and has attracted people of all religious denominations for a visit.
  • Dubrovnik - Dubrovnik is a seaside city with lots to do and see. Plenty of opportunities to travel by water, to see some excellent tourist sites in and around the area. The first attraction that all visitors take in is the Walls of Dubrovnik. They are the walls that protected Dubrovnik for coastal attack and have stood for centuries as an imposing defense for the coastal city. Today, the walls offer a great view of the Adriatic, and warm sea breezes are just one of the great things you can enjoy besides the view. A trip by boat to the island of Lokrum will take you to a monastery – after a short tour, fun in the sun on the beaches on the island. You can enjoy an excellent beach for a relaxing day, or go kayaking in the Adriatic. Or, take a tour of the island’s inner paths that will lead through virgin forests with trees as old as time itself. In Stradun, you can visit another monastery and a clock tower to look over the town. The Rector’s Palace is an excellent example of Gothic-Renaissance architecture; the palace is a mansion and museum that is well worth the time that you spend seeing it.
  • Montenegro - If you love the outdoors, a stop in Montenegro will scratch the outdoor itch. A mountain hike in Lovcen is an excellent way to spend a day, and did we mention the vista that will leave you overwhelmed by the beauty of the area. Once atop the mountain, a mausoleum stands guard for the beloved philosopher and poet, Petar II. Lovcen sits on Golden Bay and a cruise around the bay is a staple for any visitor who makes the trip here. If you take a trip to through rugged terrain for a pilgrimage to the historic Ostrog Monastery, your efforts will be rewarded for your spiritual quest. Set in hills, the monastery is carved into the rocky hillside. The devotion and effort to create this impressive structure is phenomenal. Black Lake is another destination for a cruise or a hike through the canyon that straddles the lake. A great deal of adventure tourism can be enjoyed here. There are many trails and hills to climb in search of the best view of Black Lake or the canyon.
  • Ljubljana - When you go to Ljubljana, expect to see many bridges in the city. They cross the Sana River and one popular activity is dinner cruise by boat down the river. If you are on dry land, taking the sights, one bridge that has a personality is the Dragon Bridge. It features a sculpture of Dragon that is prominent at the bridge’s entrance and has been the town’s emblem since the early 1900s. A tri-bridge attraction is in the centre of town and a trip across one of the three bridges at Tromostovje, landmark-bridge, is a great way to cross the Sana River.

Testimonials

We recently returned from a IBMT Tour for our son’s Bar Mitzvah and we all agree that it was the best vacation that we have taken to date.  The tour was well organized and the staff were friendly and very knowledgeable.  The events that they include in the tour include everything “must see” in Israel and activities that will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between.  The tour allows for activities for all ages and accommodates anyone who wants to do more or less than they have planned.  It is ...

To Ornan and  IBMT Tours staff,

We just got back from tour with IBMT for our Bat Mitzvah Tour in Israel.

We are so glad we have chosen the right company for our tour as I can’t express my words of how wonderful this tour company was, starting before we left, the personal service they showed here back home and later the service in Israel with our great tour guide Natalie who was so informative on every place we went and what we saw. It was so wonderful to listen to a ...

Dear Sheryl,

The visit to Israel was better than advertised. All of us had an awesome and inspiring vacation or as I call it, an education. Danny is one of the nicest and smartest men I have had the pleasure of meeting. He made the trip so special and I cannot imagine any other person showing us Israel but Danny.

Hotels were great but for Eilat, but no big deal. Food in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv restaurants were delicious. Sheila in Tel Aviv was extraordinary. Dinners at hotels just “so so”. Loved Mitzpe ...

Craig Savage,

Ornan,

Thank you very much for the IBMT Bat Mitzvah tour we just completed.  We had a fabulous time & there were lots of special little parts from the tour that contributed to that.  The different experiences for dinner were very special, and I liked the variety of different types of sites/attractions.  Our tour guide Natalie was excellent, and I heard good things from the other group about their guide Liat.

Thanks again

Sara / Ornan,

I had a fabulous time on this tour and highly recommend it to anyone interested.  We had an especially knowledgeable guide with us Doron Hoffman who as a history major added so much more information and had a great demeanor.  I was part of an international group and made some new friends.   

Regards,

Hi Ornan,

"Opting to celebrate our son's bar mitzvah this summer with IBMT is one of the best decisions we've ever made.  The itinerary took us to places around the country that I've never experienced on previous trips to Israel.  Experiencing our son's bar mitzvah atop Masada as opposed to a more rushed, crowded experience at the wall truly sets IBMT apart from other tour companies.  The professionalism of the IBMT staff both in North America and Israel was superb...everything was incredibly well organized and we were heartened ...
