North Macedonia

North Macedonia is one of the true pearls of the Balkan peninsula, with spectacular mountain and lake scenery, and a complex cultural heritage. This young republic has been shaped by both Western and Eastern influences over the years and its architecture, cuisine and traditions reflect this diversity. There is no better place to experience the nation’s multifaceted character than in Skopje, the county’s offbeat capital, with its magnificent Ottoman mosques, Roman ruins, atmospheric bazaar and ancient monastery. Lake Ohrid, with its sparkling cobalt waters and historical shoreside town, is one of the country’s most enchanting destinations, while the rugged highlands of Mavrovro offer hikes through magically beautiful mountains.
