www.bradtguides.com The second edition of Macedonia has been fully updated and takes into account numerous changes taking place in this rapidly-evolving destination.
The book describes a country with a treasure-trove of Greek, Roman, Slav and Turkish heritage, and pays particular attention to the country’s natural history and countryside, which continues to be as stunning and as captivating as ever. Hikers will find monasteries, mosques and churches in a rugged landscape of tectonic lakes, ravines and mountain crags; watersports enthusiasts will enjoy the clear waters of UNESCO-protected Lake Ohrid; and there’s also the café society.
