Veles is a hilly town in central Macedonia with about 50k citizens. It is very run down atm, but it has plenty of potential imo. Especially when it comes to its transportation wise important location.

I dont think we have that potential for true "hotspots" people simply prefer the sea and beaches and we aint got any :D We will definetely get more foreign tourists in the future but nothing like Greece, Bulgaria and eventualy Albania.... not to mention Turkey ;)

Yes, I am little bit optimistic but you are too pessimistic. True that "summer tourism" is a different thing. But "cultural tourism" plays very big role too. You have beautiful historical towns with great natural scenery and warm local culture. Many countries entered the third stage of tourism industry. They sell their culture. Tourists go and stay in little villages, they drink wine, eat local foods and enjoy folk dances/lifestyle of locals. You don't need sunny beaches for become hot tourists spot. Quality and Marketing are key rules imo.
