overview / intro

As an add-on to the Turkey trip, we spent a few days in Macedonia. We had time to check out Skopje (capital and city of statues), Mavrovo Lake and National Park, Matka Canyon, and Ohrid.

Recommend:

  • Day trip to Ohrid to see Lake Ohrid, the fortress and roman ruins, and the Church of Saint Clement
  • Matka Canyon hike
  • Senigallia boat hotel and the Old House restaurant in Skopje

There are LOTS of statues around town. We stop counting after a thousand. They are on every bridge and building and street corner.
