Macedonia: Skopje

Today I also received my first card from Macedonia. Officially the Republic of Macedonia is a country located in the central Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. It is one of the successor states of the former Yugoslavia, from which it declared independence in 1991. The capital and largest city  of the Republic of Macedonia is Skopje. It is also the country's political, cultural, economic, and academic center. As in 2012 the population of Skopje was about 536,000.
