Creative and alternative experience of Macedonian culture
SkopjeWelcome to Skopje, the capital of the Republic of Macedonia, a city located in
the heart of the Balkan Peninsula, a city with a 2000 years old tradition. We would
encourage you to take a walk along the beautiful quay of the river “Vardar”, to stroll along the narrow streets of the Old Bazaar, which is the biggest bazaar preserved in the Balkans today, to climb up Kale, in order to feel the spirit of the 1500 years' old fortress and enjoy the panorama of Skopje. Skopje is the mixture of traditional and modern, urban and unspoiled, suitable for every taste.
OhridThe immortal city, the Macedonian pearl, kingdom of light and water, a repository of ancient ruins from Macedonia’s earlier kingdoms waits for you. All the major attractions are located within a walking distance, among and above the narrow streets of the Old Town lined with restaurants and cafés perfectly suited for relaxing in the cool summer evenings. Ohrid is notable for once having had 365 churches, one for each day of the year, and has been referred to as a "Jerusalem of the Balkans". Ohrid is one of only 28 sites that are part of UNESCO's World Heritage that are both Cultural and Natural sites.
ThessalonikiThessaloniki is the second largest town of Greece. The most famous monument of Thessaloniki Greece is certainly the White Tower, the symbol of the town, located above the port. The Byzantine Period has left beautiful churches all over the town, which in fact have been included in the UNESCO List of World Heritage Monuments. Ladadika is the top nightlife quarter of the city with many restaurants and bars, while the Old Town is picturesque with its narrow, paved streets and the stone houses.
Afitos (optional)Afitos is a traditional village in Kassandra, Halkidiki which is located 83 km away from Thessaloniki. It has an amazing view of Toroneos gulf as the village is built on a hill overlooking the coast. Afitos is every architect's dream come true, perfectly combining natural beauty and human presence. Walking along the cobblestone alleyways, observing the traditional village with its fine examples of Greek folk architecture, one almost feels like time has stopped at the beginning of the previous century.
