Interrail Macedonia Pass – Get Yours

When talking about an Interrail Macedonia Pass or a Eurail Macedonia Pass, what we actually mean is a type of pass that is distributed by either Interrail or Eurail. Below you can find a list of available passes:

Interrail Macedonia Pass – Get Yours 

The Interrail Macedonia Pass is available to those of you who were born or live in Europe and it offers you the possibility to travel by any participating public transportation and trains throughout Macedonia.

From there you have easy access to the Balkans and the countries in the Balkan region: Serbia, Montenegro or Bulgaria. You can go a bit further and visit Romania or Croatia, as they are pretty close as well. If you wish to visit as many countries as you wish, then the Interrail Global Pass is the best choice.

Interrail Macedonia Pass Reservations

The most important thing you need to know is that the Interrail passes are for those of you born and living in Europe.

On the other hand, the Eurail passes or for non-European citizen and residents, for example, those of you born in Canada or the U.S.

An Interrail journey can be only in one country, in which case you need the Interrail Macedonia Pass, or in all 30 participating countries. The latter option is available with the Interrail Global Pass.

The Eurail Macedonia pass only allows you to visit that one country, but you can choose to visit up to 4 bordering countries with the Eurail Select Pass. Of course, you also have the option to visit all participating countries with the Eurail Global Pass.

As soon as you decide on which pass you wish, just press on the links on our website. This way you will be directed to the official vendor’s website, where you can begin your purchase.

Off the beaten track

Macedonia might not be a typical destination, which only means that the cities are not crowded with tourists and it is very easy to explore every corner of the country.

Skopje is the capital and also the largest city in the country and even then you will not be pestered with tourists waiting in line.

The wide range of outdoor activities will not disappoint you and you don’t have to share the beautiful nature with crowds of tourists all the time.

Outdoor activities

The diverse landscape in Macedonia makes for the perfect place for adventure enthusiasts. The Balkan Mountains are inviting any season, as you can go skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer.

There are also numerous lakes and wide rivers, so it is the perfect place to practice fishing or kayaking. Other fun activities are cycling, rock climbing, swimming, caving or paragliding.

Even if you are not a big fan of adventure, just admiring the scenery can create lovely memories.

Wines

You can clearly taste the Roman times in Macedonia, as they have a really long history of winemaking. Their wide varieties of red and white wines will astonish you even if you are not a fan of wines. The great thing is that in almost all restaurants you can order local wines to compliment the delicious food.

For those of you who are true wine tasting fans, you can visit the most popular wineries, such as Elenov, Grkov or Bovin.

Food

The Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and even Italian influences in the Macedonian cuisine will fulfil your wildest dreams about delicious food. Some of the most acclaimed dishes are the baked beans (tavche gravche), the stuffed peppers or the traditional moussaka.

The best part is that the warm Mediterranean climate makes for excellent conditions for vegetable and fruit growth, so most of the dishes are cooked with local products. This means that even though the traditional dishes are mostly based on meat, there are plenty of options for vegetarians too!

Interrail / Eurail Macedonia – what to do, where to go?

Here are some of our favourite ‘must-go’ places that you can plan into your Interrail Macedonia trip. Everyone has different tastes, so pick and choose the ones that sound cool to you!

Prilep

Prilep

Located in the heart of Macedonia, Prilep will amaze you with its rugged scenery and surrounding mountains.

This is a really good opportunity to go hiking, as the tourists are very scarce and you can really feel like a local.

The Old Clock Tower is a true gem, as some say it is the most beautiful clock tower in Macedonia.

Another beautiful attraction is the Carshi Mosque. The most striking thing about it is that it has two balconies on its minaret.

For those of you not familiar, this is a rarity. Prilep really is the place to go if you want to know more about the cultural heritage of Macedonia, away from the big cities.

Strumica

Strumica

This is yet another charming example of how you can explore the Macedonian lifestyle and culture, away from the crowded cities.

Strumica is located near the Bulgarian border and is the largest city in Eastern Macedonia.

The Belasica Mountain has many hiking trails and is amazing to explore. The two waterfalls, Koleshino and Smolare are simply dazzling and there are many picnic areas nearby.

The Byzantine monasteries located nearby are still home to monks and nuns so it might be a good idea to see the impressive fresco paintings and mosaics while interacting with the locals and hear authentic stories of the place.

Ohrid

The ruins of the Macedonian kingdom surround the small town of Ohrid, located by the lakeside.

Listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list, Lake Ohrid offers a wonderful view over its deep waters and you might even mistake it for a small sea.

The eastern shore of the lake will take you to the National Park of Galicica, where you can relax in the middle of nature and explore the wildlife.

If you feel like going on an adventure, then you can climb the Galicica Mountain and admire the view over the 2 surrounding lakes: Ohrid and Prespa.

Bled

Canyon Matka

This is a great opportunity for nature lovers to ravel in the beautiful scenery. The lake is surrounded by high walls of rock formations and you can rent a boat or go kayaking to explore as much as you like.

Renting a boat also enables you to visit the caves, which might turn out into a glorious adventure.

Vrelo Cave is one of the most notorious around, as it takes pride in being the deepest European underwater cave.

There are remarkable flora and fauna as well and you can encounter more than 60 species of dazzling butterflies.

Is it safe?

Holland is one of the safest and most welcoming countries in Europe. The people are friendly and it has a very low crime rate.

Regardless, it is always important to take care – try to avoid walking streets alone at night, and keep your valuables somewhere safe. If there’s no safe place at your hotel or hostel, keep them with you!

If you are concerned about something that could go wrong on your trip, we recommend taking a look at World Nomads Travel Insurance – it’s designed especially for travellers rather than typical holidaymakers.
