Southeast Europe’s Balkan Crown Jewel

Set directly above Greece and about the size of Vermont, North Macedonia is a compact jewel of a country – blue with lakes and green with forested mountains. Its capital city, Skopje, existed before the time of Christ. A beloved popular song declares that North Macedonia is “where the sun shines forever” – and we have found that to be close to the truth.

Traveler Reviews

  • "All three cities were worth the visit. Ohrid was outstanding! Lively but not overbearing, great ambience – particularly for a romantic trip."
