Macedonia is located in the centre of the Balkan Peninsula and has over 2 million inhabitants. The country is part of the United Nations since 1993 under the name FYROM (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia). It is not part of it with the name Macedonia, because of a naming dispute with neighbouring Greece. The northern region of Greece is also called Macedonia and to avoid ambiguity, Greece does not want FYROM to use the name Macedonia.
The nation’s capital is Skopje. A third of the countries’ population lives in this city. An upcoming holiday resort is Ohrid, which is located next to Lake Ohrid. You can find useful information about the most important airport of Macedonia on this page.
