NORTH MACEDONIA


Visiting North Macedonia means travelling to an area of Europe still well off the beaten track of mass tourism.    

Located in the heart of the Western Balkans, North Macedonia is a land of enchanting nature, rich in history, spirituality and age-old culture.

Its territory, unfailingly linked in collective imagination to such heroes of the past as Alexander the Great, preserves the important legacy of the Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman periods in many museums and archaeological sites of great charm.

The natural heritage, with the evocative regions of the Ohrid and Prespa lakes, the mighty mountains and the great natural parks that cross the country, is also a must.

FIVE REASONS TO VISIT MACEDONIA


Ohrid Lake and Town

Ohrid Lake and Town

The region of Lake Ohrid, where high mountain peaks mirror on the surface of crystal clear waters, is one of the most beautiful landmarks in the Balkans. Thanks to its extraordinary biodiversity, the lake is protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, just like the town of Ohrid, with its characteristic narrow streets and beautiful frescoed churches dating from the Byzantine period.

Skopje the Capital City

Skopje the Capital City

Apart from the countless statues that crowd the public space around the central Makedonija Square, the Macedonian capital is a pleasant synthesis between ancient and modern, with the two areas of the city ideally connected by the famous Ottoman period stone bridge. Remarkably beautiful is the historic Carshija, the medieval bazaar with its painted mosques, hammams and the characteristic caravanserai.

Archaeological Heritage

Archaeological Heritage

Tightened between the Danube and the Mediterranean, the Western Balkans have been, over the centuries, the meeting point of multiple civilizations. The legacy of the ancient peoples that inhabited the area can be visited in world renowned museums and archaeological parks, such as the UNESCO sites of Heraclea Lyncestis and Stobi, or  Skopje itself, places linked to the name of Alexander the Great and connected in Roman times by the famous Via Egnatia.

Byzantine Churches and Monasteries

Byzantine Churches and Monasteries

Macedonia preserves numerous splendid examples of Byzantine and post-Byzantine architecture and art, in its medieval churches and monasteries, often richly decorated by the most famous artists of their time. Of particular importance the area around Lake Ohrid with the monastery of Sveti Naum and the Orthodox churches of Sveta Sofia, Periblepto and St John Kaneo.

Macedonian Cuisine

Macedonian Cuisine

The great geographical and cultural diversity that characterizes Northern Macedonia and the Western Balkans, is also present in its wide and varied culinary offer. From the fresh fish dishes, typical of the lake areas of Ohrid and Prespa, to the meat and vegetable based cuisine of most of the country, passing through the great wine-making tradition, that offers white and red wines of excellent quality, the Macedonian table is a wonderful surprise for those visiting the region.
