Macedonia: cuisine, caves and amazing architecture

Macedonian cuisine is a mix of European and Ottoman
The Macedonian cuisine, owing to its geographical position, is inspired by Mediterranean, Turkish, and to a lesser extent, Italian, German and Eastern European. Tavče gravče, a multi-beaned stew, is seen as the national dish, while mastika, a liqueur seasoned with mastic, otherwise known as “Arabic gum” is its national drink.

Macedonian cave was used as Helm’s Deep in “Lord of the Rings”
Macedonia has amazing nature and the nature itself has formed stunning and bizarre stone figures. One of them is said by legend to be a petrified wedding party – formed some 50,000 years ago. Found in Kuklici near the city of Kratovo, one can make out (at a push) the bride, the groom, the best man and the maid of honour. Macedonia has amazing caves also. Cave Peshna is said to have one of the biggest entries in the Balkan region and resemble Helm's Deep from Lord of the Rings.

Macedonia has gigantic cross and amazing architecture examples of the Ottoman empire.
The capital city of Macedonia – Skopje, is home to the world’s fifth biggest cross, in the 66-metre high Millennium Cross, built to mark 2,000 years of Christianity in Macedonia. It sits atop Vodno Mountain in the city and can be reached by cable car.Thanks to its membership of the Ottoman Empire from the 14thcentury, there are a number of remarkable mosques, including the multi-coloured Painted Mosque, built in 1495 and said to be one of the most resplendent specimens of Islamic architecture in the world.
