For a smaller country, Macedonia sure has some big time offerings. Visitors to Lake Ohrid can enjoy activities on the water or capture breathtaking views from the nearby mountains. Journey through spectacular nature in Mavrovo National Park on your way to Skopje and gaze into nearby Matka Canyon. Don’t forget to take in the numerous historical sites all along the way that date back millennia!
