Sights and scenes of Macedonia
16 Apr, 2013 | From Goran Andonov of Macedonia
This is the second postcard Goran sent me for our swap. At the center of the postcard, you can see the Macedonian flag inside an outline of a map of Macedonia.
Macedonia , officially the Republic of Macedonia, is a country located in the central Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. It is one of the successor states of the former Yugoslavia, from which it declared independence in 1991.
A landlocked country, the Republic of Macedonia is bordered by Kosovo to the northwest, Serbia to the north, Bulgaria to the east, Greece to the south, and Albania to the west. It constitutes approximately the northwestern third of the larger geographical region of Macedonia, which also comprises the neighbouring parts of northern Greece and a smaller portion in Bulgaria. The country's capital is Skopje.
