About Macedonia

Within Macedonia

Situated in an area of extraordinary natural beauty where the Mediterranean meets the Balkans, the Republic of Macedonia is one of Europe’s last undiscovered gems: a land where rugged mountains, rolling wine yards and tranquil lakes are complemented by the magnificent remains of millennia of diverse history and civilizations.

Indeed, this territory associated in the popular imagination with the storied ancient kings of Macedon has played host to a wide variety of cultures whose tangible remnants can be experienced by travelers today. 

From sites of Neolithic star-gazing to Hellenistic and Roman cities, Byzantine churches and Ottoman fortresses and mosques, Macedonia’s historical riches are immense, with more new and exciting finds being made each year.
This history, combined with a warm and arid climate, has also given Macedonia a mouth-watering cuisine, with a rich array of meat and vegetable dishes combining Central European, Balkan and Turkish flavors, as well as superb local wines (which include endemic varietals). Given the rich soil, clear air and tradition of family-run farms, the ingredients are fresh and wholesome- many foreign visitors have found Macedonia’s grapes, tomatoes and sweet red peppers to be the tastiest in all Europe.

Active-minded visitors will certainly work up an appetite for all this abundance in Macedonia’s great outdoors- thickly forested mountains and valleys run across the country, concealing rivers and deep cave systems that are still not fully explored.

What else is there to visit in Macedonia?

The country’s twin tectonic lakes, Ohrid and Prespa, feature their own distinctive attractions: the former is almost 300m deep and holds an annual swimming marathon, while the latter features a wilderness island inhabited only by snakes and birds. Macedonia’s astonishing natural beauty thus makes it an ideal destination for hikers, rock climbers, cavers, skiers and swimmers, as well as for birdwatchers, wildlife photographers and artists.

With so much of its varied terrain relatively untouched by modern tourism, Macedonia offers an authentic range of experiences for adventurous travelers. The lively capital city, Skopje, features solid nightlife, concerts and cultural events, as do other major towns. At the same time, the country’s general safety, affordability, hospitable locals and well-developed infrastructure make it a hassle-free getaway for families and seniors.

Places to stay at

Accommodation options run from charming countryside B&Bs and city hostels to business hotels and spa resorts, while extended homestays are also increasingly popular. Indeed, one can spend anywhere from a few days to weeks or even months here, and always find something new and exciting to see or do.

Center of the balkans

Regional travel opportunities are also excellent in Macedonia, located as it is in the very heart of Southeastern Europe: the seaside resorts of Greece, Bulgaria, Albania and Montenegro are only a few hours’ drive away, as are popular ski resorts in Serbia and Bulgaria. Macedonia is an excellent base for thematic tours around the region, for those with interests including historical monuments, Byzantine monasteries, winery visits, eco-tourism and more.
