War and Peace

Michael Palin explores former Eastern Bloc countries. He travels from the Slovenian alps along the coast of Croatia, into Bosnia and Serbia, and then sails to Albania.

Michael Palin explores the countries that were for much of his life hidden behind the Iron Curtain but now are very much part of the new Europe of post-Soviet times. From high in the Julian Alps of Slovenia, along the magical coast of Croatia and deep into Bosnia and Serbia, he discovers new countries coming to terms with the bloody wars that created them and now enjoying the peace that prevails. From Dubrovnik, he sails to Albania where he finds a country adapting to a new openness.
