Macedonia Mini Guide
What is Macedonia Like?
Macedonia doesn’t have a coast, being entirely landlocked and this has served to put off travellers who often want beaches and the sea. The country does have beautiful Lake Ohrid though so all is not lost. It was part of the republic of Yugoslavia until the breakup of the country and declared its independence in 1991. It’s famed for its mountains and traditions which survived the transition from third world country to a part of Europe.
How do I get to Macedonia?
There are many flights from Europe but only one from the UK. You can choose to fly with budget airline Wizzair from Luton or if it’s cheaper and with more convenient times, fly to a German airport such as Frankfurt and connect there.
What is There to See and Do in Macedonia?
The city of Skopje is very interesting with a hint of Ottoman and Middle Eastern culture about it. The narrow streets of the old town have bazaars, coffee shops and great places to buy unusual souvenirs or get a traditional haircut. The commanding Kale Fortress is a national symbol and rightly so. Outside the city you can visit the Mother Teresa Memorial House and the Millennium Cross, reputedly the biggest in the world. Elsewhere take some time to discover Lake Ohrid or hike in the mountains of Macedonia.
