Skopje Becoming a Tourist Mecca

Last year most foreign tourists visited Ohrid, but this year most of them went to the capital, Skopje. Of total 55,323 tourists in June, nearly one half spent their vacations in Skopje, whereas the rest decided on spa resorts and other tourist destinations. 
Tourist season in Macedonia started with a quarter more foreign tourists than last year. According to the data of the Macedonian State Statistical Office, in June 25% percent more foreigners visited Macedonia compared to the same month last year.
Most tourists came from Turkey, Greece, the UK and the Netherlands. However, foreign guests spend on average 2.8 nights in Skopje before moving on to other Macedonian locations.
