Peace education programme provides opportunity for learning, life skills and leisure - Skopje
Peace education programme provides opportunity for learning, life skills and leisure The violent ripples of the ethnic conflict that rocked the former Yugoslav republic (TFYR) of Macedonia last year have barely settled.

Eight wonders of Macedonia - Skopje
Eight wonders of Macedonia 1) Alexander the Great Born to military hero King Philip II of Macedon and tutored by famed philosopher Aristotle, young Alexander was destined for, well, greatness. His first real battle was the one he fought to assume the throne, as he was considered by many, including his father, to be an illegitimate heir. Soon after his crowning, Alexander expanded the Macedonian empire through Egypt, Persia, Afghanistan and India.
