Armchair Travel: Cruising the Balkan Peninsula

October 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

- Free

Mark Hopkins’ camera documents a two-week trip that begins in Athens, Greece and continues by small ship through the Gulf of Corinth and up the spectacular east coast of the Adriatic Sea, with many stopovers in Greece, Albania, Montenegro, and Croatia. After 8 days at sea, the tour continues overland to the Croatian capital of Zagreb. A final visit to the Julian Alps of Slovenia completes the adventure. Mark’s photographs will bring you to the famed Acropolis in Athens, the site of the oracle at Delphi, the majestic mountains of Montenegro, and the historic port cities and islands of Croatia. Along the way, view Albania’s struggles to right itself after years of stifling repression. We will end with some delightful discoveries in Zagreb, capped by scenes of the beautiful valleys of Slovenia. The talk includes discussion of the region’s recent history of political upheaval.
