Istanbul & Sarajevo

I’ve got a week there, will hopefully give me a chance to see a lot but probably going to be in the north for all of it - although I hear the north is stunning anyway

Fair enough. Well, if you’re heading to Shkodër, you must visit Shkodra lake - largest lake in sourthern Europe - as it is breathtakingly beautiful. Beyond words stunning. That, and the Venice Art Mask factory. Such an amazing factory.

Tirana is such a small, yet cool capital city, that is very centralised around Skanderbeg Square. A couple of days, that’s all you’ll need, the highlight of which was Hoxha’s nuclear bunker on the outskirts of the city.
