The little landlocked country of Macedonia in the Balkans was one of our favourite spots in the area. Good food, beautiful countryside, friendly people and tons of culture – this small country has a lot to offer. We didn’t spend nearly as much time in Macedonia as we would like, so this “complete guide” is more the “complete guide of our experiences.” The information here offers a great starting point for planning your trip to Macedonia, but we highly recommend you go even further, and do more exploration of your own.
Why You Should Travel to Macedonia
Thinking of planning a trip to Macedonia? Well, Macedonia is an incredible easy country to travel in. There are bus and rail connections throughout the country. Its also a very budget friendly country, and you can experience fantastic hotels and restaurants for a fraction of the cost as most other European destinations. It’s also full of history; medieval structures, Byzantine churches, and a unique blend of Eastern and Western influence.
What to Do and See in Macedonia
We only had about five days to spend in Macedonia, so we decided to visit the two main and most popular destinations in the country; Skopje and Ohrid. Our guides and recommendations can be found below, as well as a breakdown of our suggested itinerary.
