Officially called the Republic of Macedonia, more frequently called Macedonia, is situated in Southeastern Europe in the Balkan Peninsula. Formerly a part of Yugoslavia, it declared independence in 1991. The capital of Macedonia is Skopje, and it sits centerstage in the Balkan Peninsula.
Macedonia has gone through many occupations throughout time including being under Byzantine, Ottoman, and Roman rule. And the Skopje Fortress, also known as Kale, has stood tall overlooking the Vardar River and defending the city for as long as it has been in existence.
Although not a modern city just yet, Macedonia is taking great strides to catch up with the rest of the world. People from all around Europe have settled in Macedonia and left their native land influence, which makes it an eclectic country.
