Senses are gates of our souls – Republic of North Macedonia 

Republic of North Macedonia is located in Southeast Europe, in the central part of the Balkan Peninsula. It has a position of a strategic crossroad and some kind of a bridge between Europe and the nearby countries of Asia and North Africa. Republic of North Macedonia belongs to the group of countries from the so-called Western Balkans. It is surrounded by the following neighbours - Serbia and Kosovo to the north, Bulgaria to the east, Greece to the south, and Albania to the west.

History of Republic of North Macedonia
Macedonia as a state is part of the contemporary international political scene since gaining independence from the Yugoslav Federation and is its active subject both on a bilateral and multilateral level. But when it comes to conditions and data imposed by history and culture, it can be said that Republic of North Macedonia is one of the older European and world civilizations within the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empire.

Macedonian cuisine is one of the most popular cuisines in the Balkans, reflecting Mediterranean and Middle Eastern influences and shares characteristics of other Balkan cuisines. Because of the relatively warm climate in Macedonia that allows excellent conditions for growing a variety of vegetables, fruits, spices and herbs, Macedonian cuisine is very diverse.
Macedonian cuisine is also known for the variety and large quantities of dairy products and local alcoholic drinks like rakija and various wines and liquors.
