Even in the 21st century, Macedonia is a story untold. Remote, land-locked and little visited, it’s a place practically untouched by tourist trappings, signposts, and explanations. Yet this country, once the southernmost part of Yugoslavia, has a simple natural beauty that its European neighbors find hard to match. The Bradt guide is the only English-language guide to Macedonia. This third edition includes new material on battlefields and historical figures, as well as updated information on outdoors pursuits, folk festivals, wine, archaeology—and, of course, Macedonia’s fast-improving hotels, restaurants and bars.
