A medley of historical treasures

A number of kingdoms have come and left on their mark on this small Balkan nation over the years. The Ottomans can be felt in the capital with its old Turkish bazaar and 15th-century Kameni Most stone bridge, and with scattering of Roman ruins throughout the country, history lovers have plenty to get their teeth through. Outside the city, Macedonia’s rugged mountain terrain offers excellent opportunities for hiking and outdoor adventures.
