Coinciding with the publication of its guidebook for the "Western Balkans", Lonely Planet has chosen the region as its destination of the month. Among the urban destinations, Tirana is singled out for its "wild architecture", Ljubljana as a "charming capital", and Mostar as "Bosnia’s first World Heritage-listed city". Belgrade is praised as the "party capital of the Balkans [...] with riverboat party palaces, restaurants and nightclubs, plus a fine array of museums and galleries", while Zagreb is "great for strolls through plazas, parks and elegant streets."
