Firmly locked in the heart of the Balkans, Macedonia is one of the smallest European countries at the same time inhabited by one of its oldest nations.
Numerous ancient and medieval monuments and sights prove the long line of history here. From churches and monasteries, ancient towns and fortresses, megalithic remains and rocks called Stone Dolls, to Romans baths and Ottoman bazaars every nook and cranny of the country is a proof of its rich cultural and historical heritage.
Magnificent country of wild mountain peaks, fruitful farmlands and big beautiful lakes. The country is emerging fast as a popular destination for leisure travellers after having dropped of the Balkan sentiment relatively recently.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Natural and Cultural heritage of Ohrid Region, three national parks Pelister, Mavrovo and Galicica as well as caves and waterfall provide plenty of activities to fill your day in this marvellous country.
