North Macedonia is a landlocked country in the Balkans. It is bordered by Kosovo to the northwest, Serbia to the north, Bulgaria to the east, Greece to the south, and Albania to the west. North Macedonia has a rich history dating back to the ancient kingdom of Paeonia, and was later part of the Roman and Byzantine Empires. In the early 20th century, North Macedonia became part of Yugoslavia. After the breakup of Yugoslavia, it became an independent country in 1991.

North Macedonia is a beautiful country with plenty of outdoor activities like skiing and hiking. The capital city of Skopje is home to many historical and cultural landmarks. The city of Ohrid is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is known for its clear lake and medieval churches. The country is also home to several national parks, including Mavrovo National Park and Galicica National Park.

North Macedonian cuisine is a mix of Balkan, Mediterranean, and Turkish influences. Some popular dishes include börek (a type of pastry filled with meat or cheese), ajvar (a roasted pepper and eggplant dish), and tavče gravče (a stew made with beans, meat, and vegetables).
