Every time we plan a trip, we look for exciting and unique experiences. We want to visit places few have seen before. And take one-of-a-kind, irreplicable pictures. We also search for a feeling of spiritual fulfilment, seeking to strengthen our soul against stress and uncertainty. How does one find the middle ground while wanting so many different things? The travel experience can be transformed by simply raising our heads, where the church towers soar skyward. And it is the remote churches and monasteries that help us maintain ties with the generations that came before. There, stress and anxiety simply disappear.

The authentic villages grouped together in the woods are an amazing opportunity to go back a century, feel the power of the forest, and immerse yourself in the tranquil, slow life of nature.
