Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia

Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia is a small nation with a complex and fascinating history. Belonging both to the Balkans and the Mediterranean and rich in Greek, Roman and Ottoman history, it offers impressive ancient sites with a touch of buzzing modernity.

Skopje remains one of Europe’s more unusual capitals, where constant urban renewal has turned the city into a bizarre jigsaw puzzle Turkish old town, ancient fortress of the communist era and the contemporary building combine to create a multifaceted city that never fails to surprise.

Elsewhere in the country, hiking, mountain biking, wine tasting and climbing draw tourists, while the remote mountains conceal fascinating medieval monasteries, superb alpine trails and traditional Balkan villages. Noted for its beaches, the summer festival, sublime Byzantine churches and a 34-km-long lake, Ohrid is the centre of the country’s tourism industry, even though in the winter months it is skiing at resorts such as Mavrovo that becomes the main draw.
