Living in Macedonia
The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia is located in Southern Europe. It is landlocked by five countries; Greece to the south, Albania to the west, Kosovo and Serbia to the north, and Bulgaria to the east. The name ‘Macedonia’ is actually currently being negotiated after Greece disputed the term; a referendum is soon to be held on a name change to the ‘Republic of North Macedonia’. It is not yet a European Union member, though it has a desire to join and talks are expected to begin in 2019. The country’s topography is rugged and mountainous, while three sizeable lakes are in the south. Its climate is continental, but average temperatures decrease from west to east. Economically, the country does suffer from corruption, and this hinders development and growth somewhat; 1 in 4 Macedonians are unemployed. Manufacturing is the country’s more valuable industry. There is a significant Albanian minority who reside in the north of the country and comprise 25% of the total population, which is slight over 2 million people. The capital city, Skopje, is the location of a quarter of the country’s inhabitants. Macedonian’s culture has Balkan influences. Its national holidays are generally based around Christian celebrations, though several are also based upon key dates in Macedonia’s recent political history.
