This underrated country is the opposite of its neighbor Croatia, which gets all the attention. The picturesque Old City, ancient cathedrals, and small villages near the shores should entice you to visit this nation.

These countries are stunning and are all safe to visit. They just weren’t able to get their fair share of publicity, and tourists. For those who knew better, there is so much to experience in opting to take the road less traveled.
