We are travelling during one month. Our route will be: SPAIN (Barcelona) - FRANCE (Montpellier-Marseille.Nice) - ITALY (Venezia) - SLOVENIA (Ljubbliana - Dobova) - CROATIA (Zagreb) - BOSNIA HZ (Dobrlijn-Banja Luka - Doboj) SERBIA (Belgrad) - GREECE (?¿) - TURKEY (Istambul)
Any suggestions? Will be so happy to have them? My boyfriend and myselg are leaving next august, its our first interrail so we are trying to plannify as good as possible.

dont miss the slovenian lakes (bled/bohinj), if you have time/want to try to see a bit of the croatian coast (zadar is nice) and definately go see mostar in bosnia, its really beautiful and so interesting.

Instead of GREECE (??) I would recommend BULGARIA (??) if you are planning to go to Istanbul from Belgrade not because Bulgaria
is a must see country but because the route Serbia-Macedonia-Greece-Turkey is not very well connected by railways.
the most convenient transportation is buslines (even though very cheap) on which your interrail pass will be useless.
If you choose the Serbia-Bulgaria-Turkey route you can board on to the Balkan Express (direct train from Belgrade to Istanbul)
and the (??) part will be Sofia indeed. Balkan Express connects Belgrad to Istanbul through Sofia. therefore you can step
out of the train at Sofia and spend some time there.
