Macedonia

Ottoman buildings, walled medieval cities, lakeside castles. History buffs on a budget don’t need to go broke in pricier Italy or Greece. Macedonia dates back to 356 BC, and several ancient structures are still standing today. The cities still carry their millenniums of history in ancient, medieval, and Yugoslavian architecture. Further afield, the mountainous countryside is dotted with densely forested national parks and beautiful lakes. See 10 million year old stone pillars in Kuklika, or climb Baba mountain to see glacial lakes.
