Macedonia - The Bradt Guide  (5th edition published April 2015) - Thammy Evans

Many travellers spend only a few days in Macedonia, visiting Ohrid while in transit between other countries; for this purpose any of the above guides should be sufficient. If you would like to explore the country in more depth (which is highly recommended), you will probably be better off with the Bradt Guide.

Skopje In Your Pocket

Unfortunately this city guide never made it beyond the first edition published in 2007. If you'd like to take a look anyway, the PDF may still be available for download at the link on the right.

Background Reading
