Archaeological sites in Macedonia

Archaeological sites in Macedonia can be found in almost every corner. From prehistoric temples to ancient and medieval archaeological sites, fortresses and fortifications, early Christian or medieval Christian churches, there are about 4.000 registered archaeological sites around the country, but only a few of them have been explored. The Archaeological Museum of Macedonia and the city museums are full of artifacts exclusively from this piece of lend. Visiting Macedonia, you will find out about the prehistoric megalithic observatories and temples, like Kokino or Cocev Kamen. Kokino was listed as fourth-oldest in the world by NASA. You must visit the ancient sites of Stobi, Skupi, Heraklea Linkestis, Bargala, Pelagon. And definitely the inevitable UNESCO site Ohrid. Ohrid is one of only 28 sites that are part of UNESCO’s World Heritage that are Cultural as well as Natural sites.
