The Republic of Macedonia is like a sleepy village and a paradise for nature lovers. Lake Ohrid is a major tourist attraction, as the area offers opportunities for a wealth of activities, including mountain cycling, climbing, skiing, hiking, horseback riding, caving, paragliding, and diving. At the foothills of Mount Osogovo, about four hours drive from Ohrid, Kratovo is a living museum, with bridges made by old masters, and six Middle Ages towers that are also the symbols of the town. Visit the children’s art gallery in Kratovo for a sweet, unique experience. Popova Šapka attracts skiers in the winters in Macedonia’s most popular resort.
