Continent: Eastern Europe

Currency: Macedonian Denar

Capital City: Skopje

Year I Visited: 2016

Another gorgeous Eastern European country… I honestly never realised how stunning this part of the world is. But North Macedonia (which changed its name in 2019) truly is. Slightly worse-for-wear Skopje is nestled in a breath-taking valley with incredible views, whilst Lake Ohrid will blow you away with its blueness.

Still quite rough around the edges when I visited a few years back, Skopje’s ace is its surroundings. This is a city nestled within incredible scenery. Also its big red buses look oddly familiar…


This town has just got everything you could possibly want from a European visit – a gigantic turquoise blue lake, loads of delicious restaurants/bars, a huge and interesting Old Town, and a long, relaxing promenade. Plus, it’s not yet been fully discovered.
