Day 1-3 Skopje
The capital of Macedonia has a beautiful old town center and a brand new bombastic one. You can visit the Mother Theresa museum or the museum of Skopje. Visit Lake Matka if you have time.
Day 3-5 Ohrid
Ohrid is the lake side place to be in Macedonia. Go for a boat ride on the lake to visit Bay of Bones and Sv. Naum. Go to the huge fortress on top of the hill and visit old town. Go paragliding or jump in the lake for a swim.
Day 5-7 Bitola
Bitola has a wonderful ancient Greek city and is very close to the Pelister National Park where you can hike. There’s a decent swimming pool and a very nice shopping street that is perfect for a cup of coffee.
Day 7-8 Demir Kapija/Negotino
Visit Demir Kapija for a walk in the gorge, see the railway tunnel and go in the cave. Negotino has a nice pool and there is a winery.
If you have more then one week in Macedonia check out our two week itinerary Macedonia.
We included Demir Kapija in this itinerary because we found this the highlight of our trip to Macedonia.
In total we spend over 4 weeks in Macedonia and we stayed in Ohrid for a week. Check our Macedonia page for all our adventures.
