Some interesting cities and villages from (the Republic of) Macedonia

Hello everyone! Since I have lot of photos from my travels trough my homeland, I would like to share them with you and show you some of the interesting places in my country. Like I've stated on my other thread about Skopje, I'm not a professional photographer, so don't expect much

I would like to start with the city of Gevgelija.

Quote:
Gevgelija (Macedonian: Гевгелија; [ɡɛvˈɡɛlija]) is a town with a population of 15,685 located in the very southeast of the Republic of Macedonia along the banks of the Vardar River, situated at the country's main border with Greece (Bogorodica-Evzoni), the point which links the motorway from Skopje and three other former Yugoslav capitals (Belgrade, Zagreb and Ljubljana) with Thessaloniki.

Gevgelija is often referred to as "Macedonian Las Vegas", particularly because of the number of casinos in and around the city.

The first few photos I made from the car I was driving in. It's the main street in the town.

Well, that was Gevgelija, small town with warm climate and nice & friendly people.

Next for presentation will be the village of Dojran on the Dojran lake, about 30 km east of Gevgelija.

I hope you enjoyed.

Quote:
Dojran (Macedonian: Дојран [ˈdɔjran]) was a city on the west shore of Dojran Lake in the south-east part of the Republic of Macedonia. Today, it is a collective name for two villages on the territory of the ruined city: Nov (New) Dojran (settled from the end of World War I to World War II) and Star (Old) Dojran, which contains both old ruins and recent construction, especially hotels, resorts and restaurants.

Dojran is 170 km from Skopje, 59 km from Strumica and some 30 km from Gevgelija. The nearest airports are Thessaloniki International Airport and Skopje Airport.

The old city of Dojran was totally ruined during the First World War and after the Second World War the modern villages were established.

Some very nice places here, good road trip. I like the church St. Iliya, and some charming houses. The lake shore look natural and preserved.

Nice City Library, City Museum and Church St. Iliya!
#5/3 and #12/3 also have their charme.
