Other than the mazy lanes of the delightful, Ottoman-era Čaršija district, Skopje (Скопје) best described as “appealingly ugly”; the city ravaged by an earthquake in 1963, and stately buildings replaced by brutal Yugoslav-era designs. These have, in turn, superseded by the works of Skopje 2014, a government-sponsored renovation scheme. Almost universally unpopular with locals, its focal point is a chain of monumental Neoclassical buildings along the riverfront, joined by literally hundreds of new statues. For the traveler, all of this change is rather absorbing and worth keeping tabs on while you’re sampling the city’s excellent food and nightlife.

Macedonia or The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) is a small landlocked country in southeastern Europe. The republic shares a border with Albania in the west, Yugoslavia (Serbia) in the north, Bulgaria in the east and Greece in the south. The characteristic topographical features of the country are steep-sided, rugged hills and mountains dissected by deep valleys. There are numerous rivers and streams, the largest and most important of which is the Vardar.
FYROM’s capital, Skopje, is located at the head of the Vardar river in the northwestern territory near the border with Yugoslavia. There are many freshwater lakes throughout the FYROM, including Lake Ohrid (Ohridsko Jezero) and Lake Prespa (Prespansko Jezero). About 35 percent of the country is forested, providing valuable timber resources.
Agriculture is a very important part of the economy with the other main activity being coal mining. Mineral reserves include zinc, manganese, and lead. There are some manufacturing, construction and service industries as well as forestry and freshwater fishing. Tourism is a further contributor to the economy and is now starting to revive, having been badly affected by the fighting in the region in the early 1990s.
