trip to the balkans

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to the Balkans from early oct to mid november this year lasting around 5 to 6 weeks. Have not yet booked flights. We are in our late 60's and are looking at train travel and car rental. Our current plan is to fly into Sofia and spend around 10 days touring bulgaria with rental car , then take train to Nis followed by train or bus to belgrade rent a car and tour Serbia for a week or so The overnite train from sofia doesn't sound great and only has cars with 6 couchettes which is not acceptable for my husband. Next we would take train to zagreb, rent a car and tour croatia and possibly go into montenegro, and bosnia returning car to zagreb and flying home from zagreb. I have checked car rentals and they are very reasonably priced and some allow cross border rentals. My husband has driven in italy, portugal, spain, france, romania. Would driving be more difficult due to cyrillic alphabet. We do have a GPS for those countries .We don't drive in big cities picking up car before or after our city stays. We usually stay 2 to 3 nites in each place Any suggestions re routing and itinerary would help. I have done some research and find this forum to be very helpful for trip planning
