What says more about the culture than the food? A very important point when travelling a foreign country. Of course you can visit many museums and learn about the history to better understand the country, but to really experience the culture you should definitely try as much traditional food as you can. Food in Macedonia is not particularly expensive and tastes all the better for it. In a restaurant, be sure to order the Salad "Shopska" before the main course, which you can also find under "шопска". Macedonia is also known for its peppers and sheep cheese, so you definitely have to try the "Ajvar" dip (Aјвар) and "Sirenje" (сирење). Likewise, you should have tried at least once Rakija "Pакија", a Macedonian fruit brandy with 50-60% alcohol content. The most famous dish in Macedonia is called "Gravče na Tavče" (гравче на Тавче) and is a bean stew that sometimes includes pieces of meat or sausage. Especially the meat and vegetables have an incredibly intense and delicious flavor here in the south and should be savored. Have fun tasting the food in Macedonia.

With only about 1.4 million passengers per year, the international airport of the Macedonian capital Skopje is not one of the largest airports in Europe, which is why you have to do without an extensive range of restaurants at the airport. However, some fast food chains and cafés have settled, so that you can at least buy a snack for the small hunger. You don't have to get bored, however, as you can make yourself comfortable in the Primeclass Business Lounge with free WLAN and also find a few duty-free stores.
