|In September 2018 we went to Macedonia together with three friends.
We went by airplane to Skopje and then by bus to the wineyard Popova Kula where we stayed over for the night.
Next day we went to Ohrid were we stayed for three days. On our way to Ohrid we stopped by at Stobi Archaeo-
logical excavations and in Bitula, the third largest city of Macedonia. From Ohrid we went to the capital Skopje
where we spent two days before going back home.
Macedonia is a former Yugoslavian republic, but declared themselves independent in 1991.
The area of Macedonia is 25.700 square kilometres. The official population number is about 2 millions.
