It’s unique mix of Balkan and Mediterranean culture, together with its Greek, Ottoman and Roman history, brings many ancient sites that are striking in its place within the bustling modern city life.
When planning a holiday in the Republic of Macedonia, travelers will not lack of places to go, sights to see and activities to do while in the country. Here are just a few of the more popular tourist destinations in Macedonia to visit and add to the itinerary:
Church of St. John – Also called Saint John the Theologian, Kaneo, the Church of St. John is a Macedonian Orthodox church situated on a cliff overlooking Kaneo Beach in Ohrid. The church pays homage to John of Patmos who was a writer of the Revelation and believed to be the same person as John the Apostle. Many archaeologists also believe that the Church of St. John was constructed some time before the rise of the Ottoman Empire. The current Church of St. John was restored in 1964.
Stone Town of Kuklica – Located near Kratovo, in the village of Kuklica, is the Stone Town of Kuklica. It is an area with over 120 naturally formed stone pillars. It is situated on the right bank of the Kriva River valley. It is said that there are two legends that can explain the origin of these stone formations. One of the legends is about how a woman came across her fiancé’s wedding to another woman and then turned everyone in the ceremony into stone in her anger. The other legend claims that the area was once a wasteland with extreme low temperatures that when an army passed through the area, the soldiers turned into these rock formations. Whichever the legend, the area is still an area that should not be missed when in the Republic of Macedonia.
Skopje Zoo – Home to around 500 animals across 100 types of species, the Skopje Zoo is one of the more popular tourist destinations in the Republic of Macedonia. It is located in Gradski Park and covers an area of 12 hectares. It started with just 4 hectares but the city has been steadily improving the zoo since 2008.
