Transcription

  • Kika told me she liked their flag
  • and that when I see it I’d understand.
  • Yes, there’s a sun on it and sun is nice.
  • . Is it already called North Macedonia?
  • Yes, Macedoine du Nord.
  • Green card, here it is.
  • Wait.
  • That doesn’t matter.
  • No, wait.
  • Just a second.
  • It’s coming,
  • it’s coming.
  • Let’s put away the documents.
  • You can use your ID card to enter Macedonia and Serbia as well.
  • Furthermore, Serbia has freeways all the way
  • from Hungarian border so there are no problems.
  • Welcome to the next GARAZ.TV video.
  • We welcome you to North Macedonia,
  • a completely new country for you and for us.
  • Indeed, it’s a country that would like to enter European Union
  • and we, as if euro-commissioners
  • are going to check if this effort is relevant.
  • Most importantly we want to show you a vacation with your car.
  • We are GARAZ.TV so it’s mainly about the car
  • and we are going to live on the car
  • and experience Macedonia the way it really is
  • and I hope you’re going to enjoy it alongside us.
  • This might have a connection to our winter SUV test
  • where we advised you: “If you have an SUV then use it and go for a trip.”
  • We took our own advice to heart and here we are.
  • We are about to show you some of the most interesting shots
  • to entice you for the whole video.
  • North Macedonia looks like a small insignificant country on the way to Greece.
  • Our fellow countrymen usually travel over those 180 km
  • between Serbia and Greece without a stop and after two hours they arrive to Greece.
  • Some of them might stop at a pump because fuels are cheaper compared to Serbia and Greece.
  • On the contrary we made our first stop on the first Detoil pump just after passing the border.
  • They have a delicious beef soup, a currency exchange and a free Wi-Fi.
  • Mobile phone data is expensive,
  • but when we give our seal of approval and they’ll be admitted to the EU…OK.
  • On the other hand we are not going to miss our mobile phones
  • because our orientation is intuitive and we don’t have any plan.
  • So when there’s Skopje along the way and it’s the capital of North Macedonia, we can visit it.
  • Skopje’s bigger than Prague by area
  • but has only half a million people which is a quarter of Macedonian population.
  • Although it only has half the population of Prague,
  • traffic gets congested
  • and has typical Balkan characteristics with children in the middle of intersections,
  • carriages
  • and motorbikes.
  • She was holding him tightly…
  • Not even numerous statues convinced us to stop.
  • We are not conservationists.
  • We were finding our way to the Millennium Cross that oversees the city
  • and with it the first challenge arose – to make it in time until the iron cross disappears in the clouds.
  • It’s coming from there. It’ll be here as we get to the top.
  • We’d like to see Skopje from the top but probably we’ll see just rain.
  • There’s a lot of statues all around Skopje.
  • It’s interesting. Nice, sometimes a bit exotic, post-communism.
  • This tourist attraction is also served by public transport,
  • but you need to go by foot or take a cable car in the last stretch.
  • The views from the top must be awesome.
  • The weather didn’t bother us
  • and we were asking ourselves who would actually go up in this weather.
  • Watch GARAZ.TV, subscribe and click on the bell!
  • And we are always shy to say that.
  • Some prejudices gave us hope we would see some interesting cars on the roads,
  • but we didn’t expect THIS.
  • Who has never seen an oddity such as this will not believe,
  • but in my head I assembled this technical brain teaser.
  • Yes, that’s a mobile circular saw.
  • The undercarriage, gearbox and steering come from Trabant,
  • but the engine is not a 2-stroke.
  • Is it a diesel?
  • Anti-diesel 6EURO.d euro-ecologists will drop their jaws
  • when they see this in the EU ascension talks.
  • Compression…
  • Done!
  • I’ve seen everything after this
  • and that’s only the first day.
  • No license plate, no technical or emissions control, nothing!
  • Mainly the emissions control.
  • Diesel 1-cylinder is the future!
  • For now our mission continues on the freeway where we gain first experience with haggling.
  • How much?
  • 100 denars.
  • That’s 1.5 EUR.
  • Here, we have 70.
  • I have 70.
  • Take a few away.
  • Give us less.
  • We won’t eat this much.
  • We don’t have 100 because we must pay here.
  • And now the truth.
  • There was one loosely planned stop.
  • The inspiration came unexpectedly and directly from Macedonia.
  • We decided to go to Macedonia
  • and a guy from Macedonia wrote to us.
  • And since this is not a large country we started to chat
  • and Sulko got the contact and everything else.
  • And he wrote “Best regards from Macedonia”
  • which was exactly at the time we were planning this trip.
  • I wrote to him we could meet and it seems it’s going to happen.
  • From this moment on we had our guide in Tetovo
  • and we found out that the city located near the mountains has a lot in common with Banska Bystrica.
  • And it’s actually “Tetof”.
  • We couldn’t simply go for a coffee just anywhere.
  • Coci navigated us to the underground parking lot
  • and we were having such a good conversation that “Sensei”
  • only asked if we hadn’t scraped the roof tent after we were already inside.
  • Fortunately the roof tent is lower than the usual roof box.
  • There are shopping centers and glass lifts in North Macedonia as well
  • and this one got us on top of the tallest building in the city with a restaurant and a view.
  • Coci showed us where to sleep that night.
  • It was supposed to be a nice place.
  • “Sensei” explained to Coci his own take on auto-terminology
  • and found out which video brought Coci to our channel.
  • Take a guess which one it was.
  • Well, considering Macedonians love German cars, it was this one.
  • Our viewers picked the place for the night’s camping and in the dark we came to…
  • we didn’t know where exactly.
  • We could see outlines of deserted buildings with one of them looking like a church.
  • The very first night in Macedonia was like we imagined it
  • – nice rest and a good discussion.
  • Simply put: “At home anywhere.”
  • Only the morning revealed the beauty of our first camping site
  • among historical buildings dating back to the Ottoman occupation.
  • When Turks built this site they called the city Kalkandelen.
  • The present-day Tetovo has a nice postal code 1-2-0-0.
  • We are not in a hurry though and we’d rather discover the mysterious buildings.
  • This one has a charm of crawling through the abandoned buildings as a young boy.
  • The view will be spectacular but this isn’t by far the tallest hill in the area.
  • Popova Sapka (Priest’s Hat).
  • What did the customs officer say? Popova Sapka – very high?
  • And indeed it is very high because we are above 2000 meters above sea level.
  • When we entered the country we made fun of it, a ski resort in Macedonia?
  • But when the mountains got closer we realized it’s real and we even saw some snow on their peaks.
  • What’s the highest mountain? 2800?
  • Yes, but here you can ski at up to the 2600 meters.
  • They said there are some awesome freerides.
  • We asked ourselves what we can do here in the summer
  • because the ski resort looks like a ghost town with only two policemen.
  • They were nice though, very nice.
  • We stopped at the parking lot and they said we shouldn’t have stopped there but rather go “over there”
  • because there’s a view and coffee.
  • Yes, particularly the coffee.
  • We decided we would practise our usual hobbies here in Macedonia – flying and some downhill.
  • Sulko’s going to do some paragliding. Wind’s speed and direction seems to be right.
  • Sulko had a clear plan in his mind. To fly from Popova Sapka down to Tetovo.
  • If that meant to land on the tallest building in the city I wouldn’t be surprised.
  • But the weather wasn’t in favor of our flying colleague’s plan.
  • I was left to wander the most famous, but certainly not the only, ski resort in Macedonia.
  • And this is the most important thing.
  • There’s snow in Macedonia even now during the summer.
  • Look! There’s some snow left and it’s on this south-eastern exposition.
  • There must have been heaps of snow in the winter and one of the cableways goes to the top.
  • The winter here is all about freeride and powder snow,
  • but what’s the summer like?
  • It’s quiet and without tourists.
  • Only hotel Konak is open.
  • You can have a coffee or a meal or you can stay for a night.
  • Otherwise it’s a bit of a ghost town.
  • Let’s walk around to see what’s Popova Sapka like in the summer.
  • Popova Sapka in the summer has a tranquil feeling about it.
  • Sulko on the other hand didn’t have quiet winds and he was astonished by what he saw.
  • He was listening to a “cat” in a bag.
  • In the high season adult ticket costs 800 denars, which is around 13.3 EUR.
  • Supposedly it’s going to increase to 20
  • because they’ve built a new 6-person cableway which replaces the old one and will go even higher up.
  • Here you can see where you’re going to ski.
  • It’s beautiful and super modern and at the same time it’s classic with its old-time glory.
  • And there’s a lot of garbage lying around as well.
  • But can you imagine? When the snow comes everything will be beautiful again and you won’t see any of this.
  • . It’s quite bumpy here.
  • The “cat” is called Vario, a kind of a flying Racelogic, so that you can compare your flights with other paragliders.
  • Sulko’s task was to find out which way we’d take afterwards.
  • I am flying against the wind so let’s turn here.
  • We’ll probably go that way, that should be south.
  • To some lake.
  • And this is “Tetof” with around 60 000 people.
  • Hello!
  • Behind me you can see ongoing lawn mowing operation.
  • There are grazing cows everywhere and it gives the place great atmosphere.
  • I miss the cows and sheep in our high elevation mountains.
  • The cableway behind me, even though it’s an older 2-person one, goes to the very top over that rocky wall.
  • It must be great. And I’d like to ski on this slope as well because it has a good angle and you can have some fun.
  • There’s a storm coming up behind me.
  • . I’d like to avoid this black cloud.
  • It’s taking me higher, 0.6.
  • It wasn’t as calm up in the air.
  • Let me try to explain Sulko’s remarks about the flight.
  • When the “cat” makes high pitch noises it’s going up.
  • Number two, going up.
  • I’ve got 1200.
  • That was the elevation.
  • Speed 45, with the wind.
  • And that was speed relative to the ground.
  • This might not look like you could book a room here, but you can.
  • These snow groomers definitely look like there are some nicely groomed slopes during the winter.
  • They are not the latest and greatest but they are here.
  • Another nice road and a village.
  • There are lots of nice roads around here and they would make for a full episode of “Macedonia sideways”.
  • And maybe nobody would complain either.
  • You can borrow skis there, and over there and over there as well,
  • which means you don’t need to bring your own skis here.
  • Originally I wanted to land somewhere in the city but I won’t risk the storm.
  • We made a deal with Rasto that I won’t risk anything.
  • There you can see a new 4* hotel, there are a few of them around here.
  • There’s also some construction waste, but wait, just stand here and you won’t see anything.
  • Macedonia is beautiful and amazing.
  • And from what I’ve heard you’ll find lots of different animals as well as endemic plants that you won’t find anywhere else.
  • That’s what makes Macedonia special, despite the garbage lying on the ground.
  • And this is what the graphical output of the flight looks like.
  • It’s impressive what a man tied to a napkin with a few cords can do
  • and how nice the ribbons he’s painting are when he’s searching for an upwind current.
  • There were only a few of those during this flight and so he was soon searching for a place to land.
  • I don’t mind the height but I prefer to have something between me and the ground
  • at least an iron structure.
  • This cableway is fascinating.
  • It started in Tetovo and ended here with huge elevation change.
  • It’s unbelievable.
  • Let’s be real, I wouldn’t climb skyscrapers.
  • Popova Sapka is worth the visit during the summer too.
  • I think it’s going to stay a calm place at least for a few more years,
  • but a fast building pace signals for a busy future.
  • I liked it so much that I nearly forgot about my flying colleague who couldn’t find any upwinds.
  • Nice descent. Fortunately there was a big garden in the Islamic village.
  • Since there is no service onboard of this air company, naturally a man gets thirsty
  • However, landing close to a minaret, there might be a problem with beverages of a certain type.
  • But Sulko’s not giving up.
  • Let’s grab a beer.
  • Hi!
  • Where’s bar?
  • There’s one here, cafeteria.
  • I’ll ask the guys.
  • Beer? No beer? Muslim.
  • And over there? No.
  • Who knows what was here first.
  • This church or the priest whose hat is commemorated by the name Popova Sapka.
  • I don’t know, but what I do know is that all the people live here together.
  • Those who go to church as well as those who have the minaret just behind it.
  • It’s about time to pick up Sulko, but the coffee was very good.
  • And you know what? The price in 4* hotel – 90 cents.
  • We’ll meet again – down there together with Sulko.
  • And here’s an example of coexistence of a Slovak Catholic with Albanian Muslims in Macedonia.
  • Just watch how much in common we have.
  • I am calling from Stvrtok na Ostrove, Slovakia.
  • Do you have a kebab shop there?
  • Wait I’ll show you.
  • Indeed, it’s kebab shop.
  • So the kebab in Stvrtok na Ostrove.
  • Hi how’s it going?
  • Going well, and you?
  • Me too, where are you in Slovakia?
  • In Bratislava.
  • And where exactly in Bratislava?
  • We have pizzerias here, on Kosicka street, also on Obchodna street.
  • Ah I see, is that Drazdiak (lake)?
  • No, it’s Kuchajda (lake).
  • There are lots of cables everywhere.
  • The longer delay I had, the more Sulko assimilated with the locals.
  • He was greeted by a local MacGyver.
  • This older gentleman who paid for my coffee called me to check out his workshop.
  • He showed me all his equipment.
  • A compressor, a drill. He’s fixing everything, a lot of lawn mowers.
  • People throw them away but he’s able to fix them, replacing the engine.
  • He’s very kind and he was in Slovakia while in the army.
  • Thank you. Very nice, you are skilled.
  • And this he bought for 250 EUR? 350? 250 at the junkyard.
  • He fixed it. He complains people throw away everything and buy new ones for 5000.
  • He changed the intercooler. He was in Albania with it two times. Without a problem.
  • He could go to Slovakia with it. Good, good. Good car. Thank you.
  • Here he is.
  • Listen, but the minaret is far away.
  • It’s in the line of sight.
  • How was your flight? I was running away from the cloud.
  • The rain came up there.
  • I wanted to go to Tetovo but it wouldn’t let me that way.
  • If you thought we left immediately, you were false.
  • We wouldn’t change this for any 5* hotel.
  • We watched GARAZ.TV videos, Skyped,
  • and if it wasn’t for my idea for a trip on two wheels
  • we wouldn’t have enough time to go back to Popova Sapka.
  • I nearly missed the sunset.
  • This country was made for cycling and as they say, it will blow your “sapka” away.
  • That morning we had thought we’d check out Popova Sapka,
  • Sulko would fly down and we’d be on our way.
  • In the evening we realized we would stay for the night.
  • By the way, only here I realized why does Sulko always arrive to the office in the morning with wet hair.
  • He won’t make one step until he washes his hair.
  • That’s why we spent two days in the same place.
  • We bid farewell to Popova Sapka,
  • it’s gorgeous and full of contrasts,
  • and followed the main valley south.
  • The signs and recommendations from locals guided us to the next breathtaking place
  • Mavrovo.
  • A unique reservoir was made famous by a church on its northern bank.
  • Sometimes it’s partially submerged in water and,
  • as we later found out, the internet is full of its photos.
  • We came during a low water level and Rasto had to settle for a standard sailing.
  • Once, he will be back during a high water level
  • so that it will be the first church he’ll enter on a boat.
  • Now it acted as an emergency landing spot.
  • I flew from the top of another ski resort and planned for some wingovers,
  • a descent spiral and finally a landing just next to the water.
  • It was close and I nearly managed to do it, but there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for the viewers.
  • These are the moments you are not sure if you should land on the bank
  • or touch the water’s surface just for the show.
  • So I didn’t just touch it, but landed in it.
  • The time flew by once again.
  • The statistic said: 72 km by car,
  • 2 km by boat and wet paragliding gear in the trunk.
  • We started thinking about groceries only at dusk which might pose a problem at 8 PM.
  • But there’s no problem here and the supermarket is directly on the beach.
  • Unplanned shopping is sometimes the best one.
  • 1200? That’s 20 EUR.
  • Sulko I told you not to steal in the shop.
  • As you could see I landed in the water, but the point is where I flew from and what we had seen there.
  • We wanted to make camp by the lake but in the end we just had to camp up there.
  • And this was real cosmos, quite literally.
  • We have never seen more beautiful sky.
  • It was so deep and so amazing.
  • In the places like this you don’t mind when you need to go pee at night.
  • And the night sky was only the first part.
  • Enjoy the morning.
  • When you see this country with your own eyes
  • we can guarantee it’ll be lunch when you get moving again.
  • Providing you won’t stay for the whole day.
  • You don’t need to check-out of this hotel until 10 AM,
  • you can have your breakfast for two or three hours and then?
  • Then you dry out the parachutes.
  • And what’s the best way to dry them out if there’s still dew in the grass?
  • In the air of course.
  • I also tried to stretch out this miracle.
  • And this is what a paraglider’s backup parachute looks like.
  • Thankfully Sulko didn’t need to use it.
  • It needs only a little bit of wind to topple two men on the other end.
  • It just occurred to me we’ve been having fun for a couple of days already
  • and we haven’t showed you our hotel or what does the daily check-out look like.
  • Sensei, I’ve got it, wake up.
  • Wake up and back to work!
  • It’s so nice to just lie here with nets down, with a breeze it’s not hot inside at all.
  • The only thing that’s missing is if the time could stop.
  • It’s been so long we’ve been preparing for a trip like this.
  • Here you go, our pillow.
  • “Sensei” forgot his so we’ve been sharing it.
  • This is my territory and this is his.
  • Having our heads together that’s nothing.
  • Welcome to our tent.
  • There’s also a decoration here and if somebody had a car like this
  • he could take a sharpie and mark the places he’s visited.
  • It’s a gorgeous map.
  • And I’ve found out how big Greenland is when I was lying here.
  • We also have plastic windows,
  • they are fashionable these days.
  • You can close it up like this.
  • There are these plastic covers,
  • nets or the cover against the rain.
  • Sulko, can I put it away?
  • Or rather let’s take a look what do you need to do to pack up the whole tent.
  • And that’s Sulko’s job.
  • Meanwhile let me direct your attention here.
  • When you are putting up the tent you need to think about giving it enough space
  • so that it doesn’t touch the trunk’s door.
  • It’s very easy.
  • Probably the most complicated part is this pole.
  • I’ll put it there.
  • Straighten your sleeping bags, you don’t need to pack them up.
  • Now these poles. It’s a very good thing. In the morning it prevents the wall from overheating,
  • it acts as isolation.
  • We’ve tried a few car tents to be able to say something about them.
  • So we haven’t slept in a better tent than this one yet.
  • I just put this pole down,
  • make sure nothing’s protruding.
  • Don’t forget the ladder.
  • It’s quite easy as well.
  • Secure it.
  • Here’s a cover for it.
  • It goes up and down very easily,
  • just tuck in the fabric.
  • The ladder… Sure I just want to show it.
  • You come to your place for the night and you do this.
  • And that’s all.
  • Put up the pole and it’s done.
  • Put in the ladder please because I am too short.
  • And then you ask your significant other to help you tuck it all in.
  • There’s something left in the back.
  • With the tent whose whole roof was being lifted you needed to check all the sides at the same time.
  • It’s easy with this one.
  • Ready? Yes. Wait.
  • Synchronously on 3. 1 - 2 - 3.
  • 1 - 2 - 3.
  • And it’s done.
  • Thank you for stepping on my foot.
  • Sorry, I thought it was a rock.
  • That’s how we’ve packed our stuff.
  • The parachute travels as a third passenger.
  • With the seat belt so it doesn’t fell over.
  • As far as organization goes Tucson has a good trunk size so it fits our fridge as well as these boxes that I like
  • – groceries, cooker, everything has its place.
  • It’s not only two of us here.
  • We have a lady company.
  • Let’s go Sulko!
  • We’ve travelled around 250 km through Macedonia
  • and we keep finding these incredible places we don’t want to leave.
  • And now we are trying this alternate route to Ohrid.
  • We don’t want to use the easiest one and we want to find something for Tucson too.
  • And that brings us to the point of this video.
  • It’s something we want to show you – your SUVs are capable of this.
  • They can carry the roof tent so make use of it and have a non-hotel vacation at least once.
  • Which lane do we use?
  • We don’t need to worry about overheating the transmission since it’s not a dual-clutch.
  • Although I had a better feeling from gearshifts during our test.
  • Maybe it’s because of the tent? Might be.
  • Let’s try the off-road mode.
  • It’s fine. It’s “walking” nicely.
  • That’s good, with the dual-clutch it would slip.
  • What is our ground clearance? I’m trying to accommodate for it.
  • It’s scraping a little
  • Now try the axle cross articulation over there.
  • To the left.
  • It must be said we also pick the terrain based on the fact
  • we don’t have a spare tire.
  • You should have one and we have plenty of experience as you could see in our tests of Scala or Wrangler.
  • Wrangler had it so we were mobile, Scala didn’t.
  • You should have one for this kind of adventure. We’ll take a break behind the horizon.
  • I need to go to the toilet. Again?
  • The roof tent ups Tucson’s fuel consumption by 1.5 liters on the freeway,
  • but you are not treated as a caravan anywhere.
  • It’s a car with a roof box.
  • We don’t know why but we became enchanted by this, even more than with a caravan.
  • It’s tidy and fast and you have a choice to have or not to have it up there.
  • In this country of free movement, the roof tent is a blast.
  • You are carrying your house with you and just go straight where the path takes you
  • and maybe somewhere beyond those mountains there’s Ohrid.
  • My dear friends, this is what SUVs are for – get a roof tent and go.
  • This is what all those AWD-capable cars allow you to do – carry your hotel,
  • use the dirt roads and stop for lunch.
  • We’ve checked on our children and wives, if they are doing alright.
  • We are about to have Tavce Gravce
  • which is a bean based national meal in Macedonia that is finished by baking it in a pot like this.
  • You can find the original recipes on Youtube as well.
  • It’s in a clay pot and some prepare it as a soup, some more as a mash.
  • This one’s thinner than the first one.
  • They put a clay lid on the pot with a round metal net on top of it and then put the charcoals on the net
  • . I am afraid to taste it because it’s always very hot.
  • But you have a stylish spoon.
  • Everything’s very tasty here.
  • I don’t tend to eat salads…
  • I like this one more than the previous one.
  • Although I am missing salt.
  • Alright. The kidneys rejoiced,
  • let’s go.
  • I heard the type of beans is also special.
  • Wait how does Kamila do it
  • Secret of my kitchen (Slovak cooking show)
  • This is the driver’s paradise. No cars, no traffic signs, no cameras nor radars.
  • Only the road and you. And you don’t even need to go fast.
  • You feel as if in the middle of the universe. In the middle of nothingness,
  • but in something beautiful and poetic at the same time.
  • You might be afraid to return back to the hustle and bustle of the city.
  • There was a long drive ahead of us - 115 km to Lake Ohrid.
  • I don’t know which route we took but we found Ohrid nevertheless.
  • With population of 40 000,
  • the city is a pride of North Macedonia and has played an important role several times in the past.
  • For example when we ousted St. Cyril and Methodius out of the Great Moravian Empire
  • they found their refuge here.
  • Ohrid was an important point on the road between Aegean and Adriatic sea.
  • There should be 365 churches in Ohrid, one for each day.
  • We couldn’t see them all,
  • but we didn’t feel ourselves in the city after the previous night spent “in the universe”.
  • We felt like we needed to feel human again.
  • You’ll find people who worked, lived or visited Slovakia everywhere
  • and you can get a phone number if you ever needed any help.
  • Ohrid can enchant you and by no chance it’s an UNESCO World Heritage site.
  • Lake Ohrid is one of the oldest and deepest in Europe
  • and lies in the elevation comparable to our Poprad,
  • but it’s much bigger than Liptovska Mara
  • with 15 km width and 30 km length.
  • It makes for a border between Macedonia and Albania
  • and we decided to spend our night near the Albanian border
  • just before the southernmost point of our journey.
  • Once again we are eating bell pepper stew.
  • That’s always our base meal. We don’t have a bigger pot, but that’s fine.
  • Now this will be for Sulko.
  • Again and again, “Sensei” likes to cook and I don’t mind.
  • Next I’m going to put in some eggs.
  • This morning is calmer than the previous night.
  • We had to change places in the middle of the night because of strong winds.
  • The wind was extremely strong.
  • We found clips that hold the poles in place
  • so that the tent cannot close but we just couldn’t sleep.
  • We were nervous. When we fell asleep the wind
  • rattled the tent and I was trying to hold it in place. And so we had to find a better place so that we could sleep.
  • I was already thinking about returning the tent and explaining why it’s broken.
  • There was this small pole that I thought would give way.
  • It was more of a psychological thing, we are not used to it.
  • And here it is. Scrambled eggs?
  • Yes, original eggs from Macedonia.
  • Other than that it’s relaxing. Let me taste it.
  • It’s good.
  • Do you know what is “zosik”?
  • Yes it’s “zosilovac” (eng.: booster).
  • That used to be a big thing in the past.
  • I think that’s enough, is that for me?
  • 4 eggs, you are a real man, aren’t you?
  • That’s going to be a brunch for me I think.
  • When you wake up late…
  • But as we already said a few times on this trip – no plan.
  • There’s the St. Naum.
  • We are basically at the border because the lake is the border between Albania and North Macedonia.
  • Actually that village we can see there is in Albania.
  • Maybe 3 – 4 km.
  • But we were told it’s worth the visit because of St. Naum.
  • We literally don’t know what to expect.
  • The name sounds religious, expectations are of many tourists, let’s see. So far,
  • at least from my point of view, Macedonia always surpassed our expectations.
  • OK maybe except Ohrid, that wasn’t our cup of tea.
  • But people and all, great. Polish were here so it might be good.
  • We might pay for parking here.
  • Some clothes are sold here, I might buy something for my daughters.
  • US west coast has these mission posts founded by missionaries
  • going north from Mexico and named after saints.
  • They were monasteries like this, but I don’t know if it’s similar.
  • You can see the lake from here and it looks like a sea.
  • Let’s see how much they charge for parking.
  • It’s not even 1 EUR for the whole day and look how nice the parking ticket is.
  • It’s probably some kind of a mission because this is a temple.
  • I found out what it is all about.
  • St. Naum is closer to us than we thought.
  • He was the youngest student of St. Cyril and Methodius from Thessaloniki.
  • After finishing his studies he left his wealthy parents and founded this monastery in 893 AD.
  • He devoted it to Archangel Gabriel and Archangel Michael.
  • We can see a modern age monastery because the original one,
  • as well as the church building, were devastated during Turkish invasions.
  • And what can you find here?
  • A very long souvenir corridor, a beach, beautiful restaurants,
  • possibility to travel between the restaurants on a small boat as if in Venice,
  • peacocks, and the monastery itself and a nice view such as this.
  • We left one of the biggest pearls here for the end
  • the road from Lake Ohrid to Lake Prespa through National Park Galichica.
  • The road has got tens of turns and it’s no surprise this is where Ohrid Auto Rally Two Lakes takes place.
  • I think I’d fit right in with my Peugeot 208, because these scenes come from the rally a few days after we left.
  • It’s the highest point in Galichica from where you can see both lakes at the same time.
  • There’s also an underground river that connects these two lakes into one water body
  • as the Lake Prespa’s only drain is Lake Ohrid’s only tributary.
  • The lake surfaces’ elevation change is nearly 200 meters.
  • Lake Ohrid’s deepest point is 285 m.
  • Lake Prespa’s only 54 meters and it lies in Macedonia, Albania and Greece.
  • The road scenery between the lakes is beautiful but the sun is already setting over them as well as over our trip.
  • Once I was told, when I mentioned I was going to Greece through Macedonia,
  • not to stop and lock myself in the car.
  • Now I tell you this is the first country you should stop in, open the doors,
  • enjoy it and speak to people who are amazing.
  • I’d say it’s Slovakia where we sometimes shouldn’t stop.
  • We had time of our lives.
  • It was a big surprise as we didn’t know what to expect
  • and more than the famous touristic places
  • there were those more mundane things that touched our hearts – untouched nature, solitude.
  • Those were absolutely great. And people. Thank you for watching. Bye!
  • Macedonia is a country you can go through in two hours.
  • We wanted to show you how to do it in a week.
  • Make your choice.
