This is a very special project for me. First time in Serbia. First time working with the European Union.
Crossing Routes – Blogging Europe is the 3rd edition of the bloggers’ trip project organised under the Joint Programme between the Council of Europe and the European Commission for the promotion of the Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe.
The initiative took place from the 25th to the 30th of August 2016, travelling back from Roman and Medieval times to nowadays through Slovenia, Austria and Serbia.
The chronicles of this innovative travel experience are provided through social media and on the web portals:
