Overview of the Balkans :: Links

There aren't many websites specifically about the Balkans, so most of the sites listed below are useful for planning travel in Europe generally. Of all the sites in this list, the Thorntree deserves a special mention, as Balkanology would be a lot smaller without it. Over the last few years I have found it a great source of ideas, answers to specific questions, and pointers to more detailed information. It was particularly useful in helping me to realise that travel to places like Bosnia and Serbia was feasible a few years ago, at a time when there were no guidebooks to these areas. This is probably a good place to thank the many contributors from whom I have learned, especially those who patiently answer endless questions about their own countries.
