Macedonia Geography

Macedonia is an elevated plateau of large, rolling hills and deep valleys, completely dissected and surrounded by mountains.

The Dinaric Alps extend down into the country, and the highest point is in the Korab Mountain range, at 9,066 ft. (2,764m).

Although a landlocked country, Macedonia is home to 1,100 considerably sized water sources. Major lakes include Ohrid, Prespa (both shared with Albania) and Doiran.

Lake Ohrid is the deepest lake in the Balkans (935 ft.), and is regarded as the oldest in the world.

The Vardar River divides the country, flowing on through Greece, and is a major river for Macedonia. Other rivers of note include the Bregalnica and Crna.
