    Skopje Transportation

    As many of you probably know I am interested in public transport vehicles including buses. When I first visited Skopje in 2011, I notice the city had very old buses, but I returned in 2013, I noticed more modern buses including half-cab double deckers which reminded me of the red buses in London. However these buses are built in China. I did not...

    Ohrid Transportation

    My girlfriend and I took a taxi from Struga to Ohrid during our visit to Macedonia in March 2012. We were staying in Ohrid and had caught a bus (cost: 40 MKD each) from there to Struga for the day. We intended to catch the bus back to Ohrid but, having walked to the town's inter-city bus station, we discovered that the buses to Ohrid don't stop...

    Skopje Transportation

    The Macedonian rail network radiates from Skopje with all services departing and terminating from here. The station was built in the 1970’s (replacing the former station destroyed in the 1963 earthquake) as part of the city’s combined “Transportation Centre” and so shares its site with the main bus station. This is easy to find, being located...

The second trip was more about convenience. We had just visited Sveti Jovan Kaneo...

    Skopje Transportation

    Slavomacedonia has a quite good system of central motorways, rapidly improving with E.U. financing. The southernmost part (first 30 minutes of driving from the Greek border) is still in poor condition. There are toll road fees of 1-3 euros every 50+ kms, cheaper if you hold slavomacedonian currency- dinars.
