Jasen nature reserve: North Macedonia’s secret getaway
The ‘Public Enterprise for Managing and Protection of the Multipurpose Area Jasen’ (better known as just Jasen) sprawls across rugged, mountainous terrain in still little-visited North Macedonia.

Skopje behind the statues: North Macedonia’s capital
For a relatively poor European nation, having the government drop an estimated €200 to €500 million on a hardly necessary redesign of the capital has been highly contentious – and yet it happened. The infamous ‘Skopje 2014’ project saw the construction or remodel of dozens of new government buildings, museums and the National Theatre (not to mention a triumphal arch and two bridges) in what can be described as a mix of baroque, neoclassical and Las Vegas fashion. It also meant the installment of an excessive number of new monuments and bronze statues, with the 22m-high ‘Warrior on a Horse’ (complete with fountain and musical light show) in Ploštad Makedonija taking the cake.

Spotlight on: Bitola, North Macedonia’s ‘city of consuls’
Bitola’s architectural elegance won’t come as a surprise once you learn that the town was the diplomatic and cultural centre of the Ottoman Empire in the Balkans. This earned it the moniker ‘city of consuls’: 19th-century European cultural influences are evident in neoclassical-style townhouses built by the local aristocracy.
