We spent nearly 2 weeks in Macedonia and Albania. Macedonia was the best part of the trip, although I would liked to have seen more of it. Skopje was an interesting city to visit, especially the old town (Carsija) which was very lively. Large bronze statues of famous people were numerous. I liked them but Ksenija thinks they are a scandalous waste of money for a poor country. Ohrid and its lake were very attractive, as was Gjirokastra in Albania.
