  • No One To Open The Border Gate

    Heading from Macedonia into Greece was okay, but heading back into Macedonia, there was no one manning the booth. We did have our passports checked, but the person who is supposed to open the gate, wasn't there. We were good to go, but couldn't cross. Everyone was asking why we couldn't go through, then the driver told us that there is no one to...

  • Skopje Zoo

    This is a huge dilemma: Telling people not to go to the Zoo will likely reduce turnover and consequently animal welfare...However, this zoo is too depressing to visit...The picture should speak for itself...I can understand that there is lack of money...But in that case, better no zoo than this one!Hopefully things have improved since this picture...

    You can thank me later! Let’s start with the most basic fact:Macedonian Money is not convertible!If you take it home – it’s an expensive souvenir. The following are a few helpful facts and suggestions to you from experience:* The denominations are: 10, 20, 50, 100, 500, 1000 and 5000 Denari notes. Try not to ever have the last 2. Coins are 1, 2, 5,...

  • Health Insurance

    Since September 2008 you need proof of a valid health insurance when you enter Macedonia, otherwise you will have to buy one at the border. You can ask your insurance company for an international statement. I believe that for short term stay this is only about 5 or 6 euros, but for long term stay it may be a lot more expensive.NOTE (2010): This...

  • The Dogs

    I love dogs. Therefore the sight of the many stray dogs made me so sad again and again. They are everywhere, sreets, parks, in the town, near restaurants. Great and small dogs. Unfortunately, the dogs are also a problem in Macedonia. I already know it of the journey to Bulgaria. I think a little caution is adviced to everyone.

  • Take your passport with you!

    Maybe needless to tell the more experienced traveller that you should always have your passport with you...Well, I forgot to take it when we planned an overnight stay at a monastery...The thought that you have to register in such a sacred place never occurred to me! My drivers license unfortunately was not good enough...Result: No room for me!So,...

  • Climate

    Macedonia's summers are hot and dry. Summer temperatures can reach 40'C, while in winter it can drop as low as - 20'C. The best time to enjoy Macedonia is between May and September. The busiest season is from July to August, when Macedonians take their holidays.
