Stefan in Montenegro is a perfect summer destination
About 5 kilometers from Budva Beach, a luxury island, the most expensive destination on the list. Sightseeing will only cost you about $100, and a night in one of the island’s most luxurious hotels will be much more than that. But, this is the time to go wild and rent a luxury beachfront villa, wouldn’t you agree?
This island is also popular with VIPs, who are willing to pay a good chunk of money for privacy and premium service.
There are a few beaches where you can relax, the most famous of which are Queen’s Beach and Sveti Stefan Beach, so if you have the enclave for that kind of luxury, we highly recommend you to visit Montenegro.
Dubrovnik, Croatia – Follow the Game of Thrones trail
In the past, it was known as Ragusa, this city in the region of Dalmatia is a gem worth spending money on. Dubrovnik’s history dates back to the 7th century, and the city’s architecture seems to have been cut short for good. Therefore, the city has been added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its magnificent medieval architecture.
Aside from the Old Town, some of the attractions worth visiting are the Franciscan Church and Monastery, Rector’s Palace, the Cultural Historical Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art. You can walk through Stradun or relax on Banje Beach. Indulge in the finest wines and the freshest seafood to transport you to old Dubrovnik.
For fans of the popular show Game of thrones, a TV series filmed partly in this city, we recommend taking a tour of the filming locations in Dubrovnik. Summon the Daenerys inside of you to help out with the weather, as temperatures can soar in summer.
Lake Bled in Slovenia – a postcard-worthy spot
Near the small town of the same name there is a beautiful and magical turquoise lake that will take your breath away. Lake Bled is one of the reasons why tourism in Slovenia is booming every year, and this location is at the top of the list of many tourists who decide to travel to Slovenia.
Although the lake and its surroundings are not very large, exploring the lake and its surroundings will not take much time. You can book a boat and go on a tour around the island and explore the clear waters around it. You can also enjoy swimming. Take a tour of the small island of Bled and visit the island’s symbol, a 1,000-year-old medieval castle.
If you want to make everyone jealous of your feed, book a stay in one of the old island-view villas or hotels. Can you imagine yourself eating a colorful breakfast, dressed in a cashmere bathrobe on a balcony overlooking the front row of Bled? Because we certainly can!
Luxury on a Budget – Belgrade
Despite being voted the most expensive European destination, Belgrade has a lot to offer travelers with more expensive taste. One of the best ways to go sightseeing in Belgrade is to go on a private tour, which won’t break the bank but will feel like a luxurious hug. From a Danube river cruise to a tour of Kalemegdan’s underground passages, you’ll get to know the capital of Serbia. But we want to highlight something better – the food.
There are 14 restaurants in Serbia featured in the Michelin Guide, and Saloon 1905 leads as the most popular among newcomers and locals. These restaurants will take you on a multi-course journey through local ingredients and upscale recipes served in porcelain or sustainable dishes. You can even try the dessert wine, Bermet, which is served on the Titanic.
If you go for a short drive from Belgrade, you will come to the Zasavica Special Nature Reserve. You may ask what’s so luxurious about that? Well, Zasavica technologists invented a way to turn donkey’s milk into cheese, a slow and expensive process that resulted in the world’s most expensive cheese. Get it today for $600 per kilogram, donkeys sold separately. Visit Serbia in all its glory to find even more wild and wonderful locations.
We hope our list has given you an idea of where to plan your next trip. These places are worth every penny, and we are sure you will love it. Where are you first?
