Macedonia. Idioma: INGLÉS. Autor: Thammy Evans. 3ª edición - NOVIEMBRE 2009. 360 PÁGINAS - 16 PÁGINAS DE FOTOS A COLOR - 45 MAPAS. ISBN: 9781841622972. Even in the 21st century, Macedonia is a story untold. Remote, land-locked and little visited, it's a place practically untouched by tourist trappings, signposts and explanations. Yet this country, once the southernmost part of Yugoslavia, has a simple natural beauty that its European neighbours find hard to match. The Bradt guide is the only English-language guidebook to Macedonia. This third edition includes new material on battlefields and historical figures, as well as updated information on outdoor pursuits, folk festivals, wine, archaeology – and, of course, Macedonia's fast-improving hotels, restaurants and bars.
