The beautiful lake at Matka was formed by the hydroelectric dam on the Treska River. It is a popular place in summer for swimming, hiking and boating. .
There is also a restaurant there where you can eat and drink while you are enjoying the view.
.
It is an 45 minute drive from Skopje and then an easy walk up to the lake and the restaurant.
.
As with most beautiful locations in Macedonia there is a monastery church, Sveti Andreij. The monks sure knew how to pick their spots! It provides a cool respite when it's hot outside!
.
These pictures were taken in 1998, 1999 and 2000.
