Another must-see sight is Lake Ohrid. Known for its captivating beauty, excellent fishing opportunities, and several golden sand beaches. It is located on the border between Macedonia and the Republic of Albania. The Macedonian section of the lake is beautiful, set amid mountains with stunning views overlooking the water from its beaches and amidst the hills.
The town of Ohrid is one of Macedonia’s most popular tourist destinations, boasting plenty of cultural monuments to discover especially in the old town where, amongst other highlights, you can see part of a Roman amphitheatre.
Another surprise you may not know when you visit Macedonia is that it is one of Europe’s best wine countries. Macedonians credit their delicious wine’s taste to the sun – its secret ingredient, which in Central Macedonia contributes to the exquisite taste of each and every grape picked. Of course, there is only one way to experience this for yourself and that is to get there and try a glass (or two) for yourself!
Macedonia Culture and Food
Macedonia’s culture is a blend of its own long-standing traditions and other Balkan, Mediterranean, and Turkish influences dating back as far as 333 BCE. The majority of the country’s citizens are ethnic Macedonians who are Christian, or ethnic Albanians, who are generally Muslim.
The long-standing presence of the Ottoman Turks in the country has crafted the Macedonian traditional cuisine to heavily incorporate Turkish, Mediterranean, and Balkanise elements. Typical traditional dishes we would recommend you try during your visit include the Kebapcinja, a grilled beef kebab of Turkish origin. You should also try baklava, known for being a popular Turkish and Balkan sweet treat, but also highly enjoyed and frequently served throughout Macedonia.
