An ideal holiday for the intrepid traveller. Start in Sofia, an attractive and still relatively unknown European city of tree lined boulevards and balconied buildings designed by 19th century Russian and Viennese architects, before moving on to Skopje.
North Macedonia’s capital is an ideal city to explore on foot. Stroll across the Stone Bridge, built in the 15th century upon Roman foundations, into the old town, where national restaurants, museums, galleries and bars await exploration. The final stop is Prishtina, Kosovo’s young, friendly and dynamic capital. See 15th-century Fatih Mosque in the Old Town and visit Kosovo Museum. Join the locals and explore the paths and forest trails of leafy Germia in the hills to the east of town.
