Balkan alternatives to Serbia
90 day visa expiring soon. Any suggestions on neighbouring destinations?

Some pros and cons of alternatives, just from reading up, and not from experience so feel free to tell me I’m full of shit.

Croatia - beautiful, high level English, expensive for region, overrun with tourists in summer.

Skopje - cheap, off beaten track, western status higher than most, lot of gypsies and Albanian pop (Macedonian friend tells me they are criminal class there and are to be avoided). Doesn’t look particularly beautiful as cities go.

Bosnia - don’t know a great deal about Sarajevo, think it’s quite small as city centres go and can be claustrophobic. Predominantly Muslim.

Montenegro- expensive for region, full of tourists this time of year.

Anything I’m missing? Am very open to being told I’m wrong here, these are assumptions and based on others anecdotal experiences.

This thread is more asking for others option than expressing my own.

If you want low accomodation prices in a beautiful place, you can go to the city of Ohrid (located in North Macedonia on the shore of Lake Ohrid).

I was there only a few days, the local women have the reputation to be more traditional than in other European countries, so don't go there expecting to find a fuckfest.

I was renting a house for 8 euros a day with wifi, I have told the owners I don't know how long I was going to stay, so I rent on a daily basis.

^^ Yeah I can vouch for Ohrid as well. Beautiful town full of history; some nice hiking trails in the region and some decent beaches all around the lake. It's been a while since I was there but it wasn't overrun with tourists (yet).

Word on the street is that you just leave and come back in the same day.

Border runs still work in Serbia.

Yes, can also confirm that I know expats in Serbia who've been doing border runs for years.

OP - Your list sounds like a good summary. Choice of place would depend on what you're looking for. Note also that some of these places are very different at different times of year, eg Croatian coast is empty during winter, Bosnia is bleak during winter.

RE: Balkan alternatives to Serbia
I would go for Macedonia.
At first, spending the rest of the summer at Ohrid is something really worth it. It´s probably dead place in winter, so I would go to Skopje. Some people find it weird (newly built history), but I personally like that place and can imagine myself living there.

Generally, I think all the Balkan cities have the same things in common (Beograd, Skopje, Prishtina, Sarajevo,...):
- They are very cheap
- A lot of delicious food
- A lot of young people
- The most beautiful women in the world
- They are alive

There´s something I would call balkan soul and it´s the same in each of these cities, but at the same time, each of these cities has it´s own special soul.

Since you can´t stay in Beograd, I would go for Skopje. The others are overpriced tourist destinations or muslim countries.

How about Bulgaria? It is very diverse and you can choose from mountainous areas to beaches. They have the lowest minimum wage of all the EU, even lower than Croatia. If you want to avoid any EU country for some reason, stick to Macedonia.

Just leave and re-enter if you have any problems then go somewhere else. The problem with Macedonia is that it has some of the highest pollution rates in Europe, in Skopje the burn plastic in the streets and think nothing of it
