17 Macedonia Instagram Photos That Will Make You Love History

In September 2015 I had the opportunity to visit my 7th Balkan country, Macedonia. For 9 incredible days we visited Skopje the capital, Bitola the second largest city, Mavrovo National Park, Lake Ohrid and the Povadarie wine region. I was able to capture highlights from my trip and share my Macedonia Instagram photos with my followers.

I learned so much about the history, people and cuisine of this amazing country and documented it all through Instagram.

Here are my top 17 Macedonia Instagram photos that will hopefully inspire you to one day travel to Macedonia and experience its unique history and beautiful landscapes for yourself!
