Macedonia, a member of the former Yugoslavian republic, is located in the Balkan peninsula, in south-eastern Europe
. A candidate for the European Union since 2005, Macedonia is a country with rural traditions that is fond of food and oenology. A country in which Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman art flourished, Macedonia is a true human mosaic where Slavs, Albanians, Roms, Vlachs and Turks live.
155 miles long and much the same in width, Macedonia can be toured in a few days, from its mosques to its monasteries through its national parks, unveiling its varied wildlife and wild flora, that will seduce hikers and nature lovers.
