Macedonia Holidays

Choose a Macedonia holiday and visit the old-meets-new capital city, Skopje, where black-clad Orthodox priests mingle with trendy teenagers clutching state-of-the art gadgets. The Ottoman influence is apparent with the Old Bazaar and the slim minarets of the mosques.

Away from Skopje you will encounter a land of gleaming lakes and rivers, brooding mountains, remote stone villages and stunning monasteries. Sleepy Ohrid comes alive in the summer as it draws in visitors to its idyllic location on Lake Ohrid with its backdrop of dark blue mountains. Make sure you take in one of the many summer concerts held in the atmospheric venue of the remains of the old fortress.

What type of Macedonia holiday are you interested in?

Regent Recommends

Get some fresh air on your Macedonia holiday by hiking through the forested wilderness of Macedonia's national parks or soak up the alpine views from the premier ski resort of Popova Sapka.

Head for the town of Bitola peppered with mosques, Catholic and Orthodox churches and a beautifully preserved Turkish bazaar. Here you can take in Roman Heraclea with its baths and mosaics and the remote hilltop Treskavec monastery.

Macedonia is packed full of ancient relics, historical sites and beautiful landscapes, but is far less busy than neighbouring Greece or Bulgaria. So Macedonia holidays are ideal for those interested in tracing the marks left by empires – from Alexander the Great to the Romans to the Ottomans – without having to elbow their way through the tourist hordes.
