There is a special place waiting for you. A place still unspoiled, already experienced by more and more nature lovers and adventurers. That special place is Macedonia -where beauty and culture blend to create unique experiences.
"There, where the sun shines forever - there is Macedonia" is a verse from an old popular folk song. Macedonia is exactly that - a small country where the sun always shines in the scenic heart of the Balcans.
The cradle of culture, the land of nature
Are you fed up with overcrowded beaches, overrated world-renowned sights, and hordes of tourists getting in your way? Do you feel you ought to skip the crass tourist traps, grand boulevards, and magnificent buildings and monuments? Then, perhaps it is time you took a journey to Macedonia.
Tucked away in a corner of Southeast Europe, Macedonia is a country with idyllic natural surroundings and a somewhat less idyllic history. It has seen much turmoil, conquest, famine, and subsequent immigration in the distant and more recent past. Alexander the Great, the Romans, Byzantines, the Ottomans, Nazis, and the Communists have all been here and left a mark on the land and its people, leaving behind rich historical attractions.
