Bodies of Water · Historic Sites · Landmarks
Despite its rich culture and outstanding natural beauty, the Republic of Macedonia remains relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists. Life continues at a slower pace in this natural setting of mountains, lakes, and rivers. Tradition and local customs rule the country's idyllic villages, tiny pockets of hospitality scattered across a rugged region. Start your Macedonian adventure at the capital city of Skopje, an easygoing urban center offering good dining, shopping, and entertainment options. The city also serves as a convenient base for hiking and biking trips through the surrounding countryside, which is noted for its ancient monasteries, mosques, and archaeological sites.
