    • Boat trip to the springs that feed Ohris Lake

      Hi, does anyone know if the boat services running along the natural springs in Ohrid (Near St Naum, not on the lake) work on 2 April. If so does anyone have contact details?

      Further description of the location in the link below;

    • Hiking late March

      FYR of Macedonia Feb 28, 2015 at 7:22 AM

      Hi, I'm coming to Macedonia for work (teaching). I will be based in Ohrid and will have two free weekends. I'm a very enthusiastic independent hiker. Ideally, I'd hire a car, drive to a trailhead and hike all day... I wonder what is a good resource for maps / trail descriptions? Are there any special safety issues I should know about? And what is hiking like in late March? I guess higher altitudes are still under heavy snow cover?

      14 Days in Macedonia - Itinerary ?

      FYR of Macedonia Jan 16, 2015 at 10:01 AM

      Hi Folks,

      My wife and I enjoyed one of the greatest trips of our lives in the summer of 2012 that included every country in the former Yugoslavia, excluding Slovakia, over six weeks. This summer we are bringing ten of our friends back. Since they are Americans, they are all limited to only two weeks so we've decided to focus only on one country at a time for 14-day tours.

      Macedonia was our choice for the most exotic and interesting (with Montenegro, Bosnia, Serbia and then Croatia following, in order) and most likely to provide an unexpected thrill for our friends. I would like to ask for a little help on an itinerary, though.

      They'll all have to enter and exit from Skopje so we'll start there. Right now, I've allotted two nights to Skopje, two for Bitola, and four for Ohrid. That's eight nights with five more to fill. The only other places that I've been to are Tetovo and Stobi ruins and while I really like both those places am wondering what other places you might recommend, keeping in mind that since we're a group we're going to want to spend minimally two nights at any stop.

      I would love to learn of a pristine natural environment or other historic town and would consider adding a night to either Bitola or Ohrid since they're so rich.

      Thanks for your consideration.

      My wife & myself (both Senior Citizens ) have visited quite a number of eastern European countries but never Macedonia. We are thinking of flying from the UK to Sofia and then hopefully getting a bus from there to Skopje and back. I would be obliged if anyone could help me on this matter ,we prefer busses to Taxis,obviously because of the expense.

      Heading to Western Macedonia next year and now find there's no bus from Mavrovo to Galicnik. It's about 11 miles and I don't fancy dragging a suitcase that far. Presumably there are taxis available in Mavrovo? If so, any idea what a reasonable fare would be?

      Skopje - Thessaloniki train tickets

      FYR of Macedonia Jun 19, 2014 at 7:04 PM

      I know that this service recently restarted as Greece had suspended all international trains at one point. VTers have told me this service is currently running. I am going to be making this trip in September. When I try to book the ticket here: tickets.trainose.gr/dromolog... it says that 'You cannot buy an e-ticket for this trip.' I have tried for earlier dates and got the same message.

      I'm just a little worried as this route was only recently restarted. I will ask my accommodations in Skopje to try to book the ticket for me after July 1 when September becomes open for booking. Failing that, do you think we'll be able to book seats when we first get to Skopje, which is four days prior to when we leave for Thessaloniki?

      Thanks!

      Coming from Serbia, then on to Greece and Bulgaria

      FYR of Macedonia May 15, 2014 at 7:45 PM

      I've been doing some research on my upcoming Balkans trip in September, and I'm trying to figure out the best way to see the cities and towns I'm interested in. My wife and I fly into Budapest then will be heading to Belgrade for a few days. After that, I would like to go to Ohrid, maybe Skopje (but it is skippable for me), Thessaloniki, then on to Sofia to meet a friend.

      I'm trying to figure out the most logical/direct way of going to these cities without spending the entire time in trains/buses/cars. I've done a lot of research and figured out several different ways to do it, but before I list them all, I'd like to hear what you knowledgeable VTers have to say. I don't mind driving if renting cars and crossing borders in them is a possibility and not incredibly expensive.

      Thanks very much in advance for all your help!
