Macedonia, an emerging travel destination

Would you like to enjoy a cultural or sporting vacation, avoid the crowds on the seaside and discover breathtaking landscapes? So welcome to Macedonia!


An emerging vacation destination in Europe

This Balkan and Mediterranean country offers a cultural diversity that’s sure to please.
Macedonia’s history has seen an increase in the number of tourists, making it a vacation destination in its own right. Its geographical location attracts many low-cost flights from major European cities to Skopje and Ohrid.

Skopje, its capital, is awe-inspiring, with the contrast between the contemporary architecture of its main square and the churches, mosques and Ottoman castle of its old town (Carsija). After a day of sightseeing, in the evening you’ll find the locals hanging out in the many bars and restaurants in the bohemian quarter (Debar Maalo).

Macedonia’s size allows tourists to discover mountainous landscapes, numerous lakes and enter the churches and monasteries scattered throughout the country.

Depending on the season, the country lends itself to hiking, mountain biking, mountaineering and skiing, a wide range of activities for the more sporty.
