North Macedonia

The landlocked country in south-eastern Europe is particularly popular with travellers looking for a quiet "low-tourist" destination. Visitors especially appreciate the nature and cultural monuments as well as the lively capital Skopje.

Despite the beauty of the country, Northern Macedonia has one of the weakest economies in Europe and is therefore still in a process of political and economic transformation. Until 2001, the country was repeatedly shaken by ethnically motivated conflicts that took on civil war-like conditions. Since then, a peace treaty has significantly improved the overall situation of ethnic minorities. Nevertheless, social equality of all ethnic groups has still not been achieved.
