A Balkan-Mediterranean hybrid, Macedonia offers hassle-free travel through a spectrum of experiences. Lake Ohrid is rimmed by spectacular towns and swimming spots. Macedonia’s Byzantine churches house important medieval art, while its monasteries are all about location, perched on cliff ridges or even built into cliff faces. Hikers, climbers and mountain bikers can enjoy panoramas over untouched mountain landscapes, while wine connoisseurs can enjoy a drop of vino with laid-back locals among the seemingly endless vineyards.
