Maybe needless to tell the more experienced traveller that you should always have your passport with you...Well, I forgot to take it when we planned an overnight stay at a monastery...The thought that you have to register in such a sacred place never occurred to me! My drivers license unfortunately was not good enough...Result: No room for me!
So, take your passport, even if you´re planning to stay in a mountain hut or monastery!

This is a huge dilemma: Telling people not to go to the Zoo will likely reduce turnover and consequently animal welfare...However, this zoo is too depressing to visit...The picture should speak for itself...
I can understand that there is lack of money...But in that case, better no zoo than this one!
Hopefully things have improved since this picture was taken (2003).
Update 2012: The zoo has improved a lot!
Since September 2008 you need proof of a valid health insurance when you enter Macedonia, otherwise you will have to buy one at the border. You can ask your insurance company for an international statement.
I believe that for short term stay this is only about 5 or 6 euros, but for long term stay it may be a lot more expensive.
NOTE (2010): This policy has been canceled! You do not need to proof anymore that you have a valid health insurance, or buy one at the border!
