Despite the fact that North Macedonia is one of the smallest countries in the Balkans, it is listed as one of the top destinations to visit due to its combination of mountains, forests, lakes and history. From the glory of Greek marbleto Alexander the Great, from the invasions and Rome’s settlements to the early and late Ottoman influence to the Yugoslav period—all these time periods are now part of the North Macedonian gift to the world. Because it is a small country with many beauties, North Macedonia can easily be fully visited. There you can find many attractions: world-class skiing resorts; mountains and lakes like Ohrid Lake, a natural reserve and a UNESCCO World Heritage Site; historic towns like Skopje (the capital) and Bitola; special architecture like the houses in Ohrid; archaeological sites such as Heraclea and Stobi, etc.
With all these, you might think that the tagline of North Macedonian tourism, “Macedonia Timeless,” is quite catchy, but believe me, you must try it yourself and eternal memories will be with you.
