Accommodation


The Balkan Heritage Field School provides in all the field school projects/courses comfortable accommodation in hotels, guest houses and modern cabins. Rooms (often equipped with air conditioning and Wi-Fi) are usually with 2 to 3 beds plus WC and showers. They are cleaned by the hotel staff. Students do not need to bring towels, sleeping bags or sheets. Cheap laundry service is available in all field school locations.


Where possible the Balkan Heritage Field School provides alternative accommodation options to students with preference to higher accommodation standards for an additional fee.


The Balkan cuisine is a mix between European and Oriental ones. All the students will be able to enjoy it while attending our field school. The field school admission fee covers three meals (typical Balkan fresh, organic homemade food) per day - they take place (except the lunch packages during the excursions) in taverns/restaurants/other dining premises in or very near to the project venue. The field school generally accepts requests for special diets (vegetarian, diary-free, meat-free and others meeting religious dietary needs). Only certain field school projects/courses can provide gluten-free menu.
