The country of Macedonia is an undiscovered gem, with a host of interesting attractions from the Roman ruins of Heraclea Lyncestis to the Ottoman architecture of Bitola.
You can also visit the various churches of the Ohrid, which is often referred to as the Macedonian Jerusalem.
An emerging tourist destination, there is plenty to interest even the most experienced traveller.

With a host of small restaurants, bars and cafes, the promenade starts at the town of Ohrid and continues around the lake, and is the perfect place for enjoying a coffee or just people watching.
The origins of the town can be dated back to Phililp II, the father of Alexander the Great. This thriving Roman town was located on the Via Egnatia road that linked Byzantium to Italy and the ruins contain a number of interesting mosaics.
Dating back almost 4,000 years, this is the fourth oldest ancient observatory in the world and is considered to be on a par with Stonehenge.
