About North Macedonia

Northern Macedonia, located in the Balkans, shares borders with Serbia and Kosovo to the north, Albania to the west, Greece to the south, and Bulgaria to the east. The country, characterized by a mountainous terrain and intersected by the Vardar River, is home to the lakes of Ohrid, Prespa, and Dojran.
A diverse range of ethnic groups resides in Macedonia, with visible traces of influence from its 542 years under Ottoman rule. Alongside Macedonians and Albanians, Gypsies, Serbs, Bosniaks, and Vlachs inhabit the country. While Macedonian is the official language, various ethnic groups use Albanian, Croatian, Serbian, and Turkish. Macedonia's official currency is the Macedonian Denar. 
Orthodoxy is the predominant religion in Macedonia, with Islam ranking second in practice. Macedonia is one of the European countries with a sizable Muslim population, primarily Albanians. The Macedonian Muslims are commonly referred to as "Torbeš" to distinguish them from the Christian population.
Macedonia experiences a continental climate with cold and snowy winters and cool and rainy summers. January is the coldest month, while July is the warmest. The country is known for its natural and artificial lakes, and visiting during April, May, June, July, August, and September is considered the ideal period.
With a well-developed road and railway network, the country does not face much traffic stress. Taxis are also widely used among the public transportation options, especially in major cities.
Must-visit cities in Macedonia include the capital, Skopje, along with Bitola, Tetovo, Prilep, Kumanovo, and Ohrid. Skopje, the largest city in the country, is traversed by the Vardar River. Known as Skopje in the Macedonian language, the city is one of the oldest in the Balkans and a cultural center. The 13-arch Stone Bridge, a symbol of Skopje, and Macedonia Square, connected to the bridge, are among the top attractions for visitors.
The country's second-largest city, Bitola, is located along the Dragor River. Bitola, the economic and industrial center of southwestern Macedonia, is one of the leading cities in food production. Kumanovo, the third-largest city in the country, and Ohrid, a city on the shores of Lake Ohrid, are also among the most popular places in Macedonia.
Tourism is a significant source of income for the country. In this agriculture-based economy, wheat, barley, corn, tobacco, cotton, sunflower, and sugar beet are the primary agricultural products. Besides agriculture, animal husbandry is widespread in Macedonia, particularly sheep and cattle farming in mountainous areas. Forestry, mining, and manufacturing are other sectors in the country. Russia and Germany are among Macedonia's most important importers.
Macedonian cuisine shares similarities with other Balkan countries. Noteworthy dishes include kebapchinja, tavče gravče, musaka, burek, and baklava, representing the delicious offerings of Macedonian cuisine. Specialties like kaymakcina, spinach-filled Skopje pastry, Skopje soup, black plum stew, Skopje kebab, sarma, and tiyasinay come highly recommended and are among the country's most famous dishes.
Celebrations and festivals in Macedonia are colorful.
