Be careful where you travel in the Balkans.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. And I love the argument why Croatia should be allowed to join the EU:
    ie, the EU is so full of cr@p that it's unjust to insist that we clear up our cr@p before we can join. Balkan logic at its finest. Brilliant!
  2. In my experience, some Croats have developed a distinct dislike for Britain recently, thanks to our Government leading the pack in insisting that Croatia comply a bit more readily with handing over it's suspeced war criminals for trial before the country can be considered ready to join the EU. Some Croats just can't get their heads around the fact that war crimes committed by Croats on Croatian territory are still war crimes. They'll demand justice for Vukovar whilst glossing over Knin...

    If you stick to Slovenia, Dubrovnik and Muslim areas of Bosnia, you can't go far wrong!
  3. why has this only just hit the news when the FCO updated the travel advice on 8th April?

    this is the advice on France...........both countries sound as dangerous as London
    Travel Summary

    There is a general threat from terrorism. Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places frequented by expatriates and foreign travellers. On 16 December 2008, several packs of explosives were dismantled at the Printemps Haussman Department store in Central Paris. No-one was injured. Since 2006 a number of explosions and failed explosions have occurred in Corsica. You are advised to take care, particularly in town centres and near public buildings, and be wary of unattended packages. See the Terrorism section of this advice for more details
  4. Threadneedle Street close to the Bank of England in London is a pretty lousy place, reportedly.... lots of riots and police brutality.
