Matka Canyon: A Natural Experience
 
From the cool, fresh air, to the sounds of exotic birds, the cloud-shrouded Matka canyon is a treat for the senses...
Located on the right bank of the Treska River, Vrelo Cave was listed as one of the top 77 natural sites in the world in the New 7 Wonders of Nature project.
Vrelo Cave has many stalactites including a large one in the middle of the cave is known as the "Pine Cone" due to its shape. There are two lakes at the end of the cave, with one larger than the other.
Though the exact depth of the cave is unknown, some speculate that it could be the deepest underwater cave in the world...

И твојот поглед го следам јас,
ко в сон ме мами, во преграт
о мила моја, волшебни ноќи,
за еден бакнеж мал, се би дал.

Ohrid, the eternal city of light and beauty...
Ohrid is a magical hill whose primordial pulsation links ancient and modern times forever. Living two thousand and four hundred years, Ohrid is the successor of Lihnidos, meaning the city of lights.
Ohrid gave literacy and culture of many peoples. Centuries ago, this region was a center of the glorious era of artistic, cultural and spiritual enlightenment. On the shores of the lake were created icons and mosaics, beautiful frescoes painted, written manuscripts and was established the first Slavic University.
The city through centuries represented the church history of Macedonia as an Episcopal center in ancient times and through the famous Ohrid Archbishopric.
Ohrid was also the most important capital city of the first Samuil's empire. 
In the nineteenth century, the city was the center of Macedonian’s Renaissance.
Today Ohrid is a cultural, spiritual and tourist center of Macedonia. As the crowning of its values, Ohrid and Ohrid Lake is under the protection of UNESCO since 1979, entering in the list of world cultural and natural heritage.

Mountains, lakes, rivers, villages, cities ... Discover the history, culture and heritage of Macedonia... Have a vision of how beautiful this country is... Many say that Macedonia is the pearl of the Balkans owing to its beauties.
Introduction

Macedonia (Macedonian: Македонија), officially the Republic of Macedonia, is a country located in the central Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. It is one of the successor states of the former Yugoslavia, from which it declared independence in 1991.

The country's capital is Skopje, with 506,926 inhabitants according to a 2002 census. Other cities include Bitola, Kumanovo, Prilep, Tetovo, Ohrid, Veles, ŠtipKočani, Gostivar and Strumica.

Macedonia has a total area of 25,713 km2 (9,928 sq mi). It is a landlocked country and has more than 50 lakes and sixteen mountains higher than 2,000 m (6,562 ft). Three large lakes — Lake Ohrid, Lake Prespa and Dojran Lake — lie on the southern borders, bisected by the frontiers with Albania and Greece. Ohrid is considered to be one of the oldest lakes and biotopes in the world. Macedonia also has scenic mountains. They belong to two different mountain ranges: the first is the Šar Mountains that continues to the West Vardar/Pelagonia group of mountains (Baba Mountain, Nidže, Kozuf and Jakupica), also known as the Dinaric range. The second range is the OsogovoBelasica mountain chain, also known as the Rhodope range.

Macedonia has a transitional climate from Mediterranean to continental. The summers are hot and dry and the winters are moderately cold. The flora of Republic of Macedonia is represented with around 210 families, 920 genera, and around 3,700 plant species. The most abundant group are the flowering plants with around 3,200 species, which is followed by mosses (350 species) and ferns (42).  According to the World Wide Fund for Nature(WWF) and Digital Map of European Ecological Regions by the European Environment Agency, the territory of the Republic can be subdivided into four ecoregions: the Pindus Mountains mixed forests, Balkan mixed forests, Rhodopes mixed forests and Aegean sclerophyllous and mixed forests.

The fauna of Macedonian forests is abundant and includes bears, wild boars, wolves, foxes, squirrels, chamois and deer. The lynx is found, although very rarely, in the mountains of western Macedonia, while deer can be found in the region of Demir Kapija. Forest birds include the blackcap, the grouse, the black grouse, the imperial eagle and the forest owl. The fauna of Lake Ohrid is a relict of an earlier era and the lake is widely known for its letnica trout, lake whitefish, gudgeon, roach, podust, and pior, as well as for certain species of snails of a genus older than 30 million years; similar species can only be found in Lake Baikal.

Macedonia is a parliamentary democracy with an executive government composed of a coalition of parties from the unicameral legislature (Parliament) and an independent judicial branch with a constitutional court.

Macedonia is a member of the UN and the Council of Europe. Since December 2005 it has also been a candidate for joining the European Union and has applied for NATO membership.

National Archaeological Museum of Macedonia houses some of the most important artifacts from a variety of archaeological locations around Macedonia from prehistory to medieval times. It is situated on the banks of river Vardar, next to Stone Bridge in the center of the city. The large building also houses the Constitutional Court and State Archives of Macedonia. A copy of the Alexander the Great's sarcophagus from the 4th century BC, whose original is on display at the Istanbul Archaeological Museum, will be one of the most attractive items in the new National Archaeological Museum in Skopje. Eye Bridge, situated between the Stone Bridge and the Art Bridge, is a pedestrian bridge which includes 28 sculptures and serves as a main entrance to the Museum.
