A treasure trove of adventures, Macedonia is emerging as a top new tourist destination. With unspoilt mountains, lakes and spas, traces of old communism, and friendly hospitality at rural boutique hotels, it's not hard to see why. The wines are rich, the history steeped, and the culture varied. This remains the only standalone English-language guide to the country and the author shares her love of the country with expanded coverage of eastern Macedonia and its hot springs, rock art and megalithic observatory. For travellers with special interests there is coverage of the World War I battlefields, new eco-tourism lodges, food and hiking routes.
