Macedonia is a melting pot of cultures and history that gives the country its own unique flair. The three regions (Povardarie, Western Macedonia, and Eastern Macedonia) offer something different for every visitor, no matter what your taste.
Povardarie is the central region of Macedonia. Nestled near the north is the capital city, Skopje. Skopje has seen the demise and creation of numerous empires, giving it a hodge-podge of religious monuments from many different eras. The Sveti Spas Church is housed partially underground and is the final resting place of the country’s national hero: Goce Delcev.
Western Macedonia is most acclaimed for its three national parks: Galicia, Mavrovo, and Pelister. Each of these parks offers outdoor activities as well as nightlife to suit any agenda.
If you’re searching for examples of Macedonian rural life, take a trip to the Eastern Macedonia region. Veljusa is one of these picturesque villages nestled away from civilization that visitors will be sorry if they missed!
