Monemvasia, Greece

Known as the Gibraltar of Greece, the island town of Monemvasia in the Peloponnisos was once a bustling 15th-century Byzantine city. The name “Monemvasia” translates to “one entrance”: It’s accessed through a single doorway that’s only wide enough to accommodate a loaded donkey.

Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia

Visitors to Croatia’s first—and largest—national park trod a wooden boardwalk snaking through grassy areas, over waterways, and past plunging waterfalls. The park’s 16 terraced lakes, formed by natural travertine dams, change colors throughout the day, from bright turquoise to gray, depending on the angle of the sun’s rays and the mineral makeup of the water.
