A city break in Macedonia will provide you with the perfect opportunity to get a taste of the stunning natural beauty and fascinating history of this relatively mysterious Balkan country. Home to some of history’s most famous figures from Alexander the Great to Mother Theresa, Macedonia enjoys a rich and diverse heritage that spans the Byzantine and Ottoman empires; the latter’s influence still evident today in the captivating architecture and culture found here. With a strong sense of renewal following its independence from socialist Yugoslavia in the 1990s, Macedonia represents a novel mix of ancient history and modern progress.
A Macedonia city break will take you to its picturesque yet little-visited capital, Skopje. Here you will find countless reminders of the country’s colourful history: age old churches and mosques, characterful streets, the Old Bazaar selling an abundance of traditional crafts and goods, the Kale Fortress which dates back to the 10th-century.
While a bustling café culture and a stylish, youthful crowd found in the increasing number of hip bars are just a couple of the many indicators that Macedonia is anything but stuck in the past. There is plenty to see just outside the capital too, such as the world’s smallest ethnographical museum in the pretty village of Dzepcishte, which despite displaying over 1000 items can only admit one visitor at a time!
