Top contributor Minglam put together this awesome aerial tour of the the two most well known areas of the Balkan nation of Macedonia.  The first part of the video is shot around Lake Ohrid, the large lake which forms part of the border with Albania to the west.  The lake is not only spectacularly beautiful but it's dotted with many sites of cultural interest, also shown in the video.  The film then transitions to Skopje, Macedonia's capital city, which lies in a valley in the northern part of the country.

Lake Ohrid is one of the most spectacular bits of natural scenery in the Balkans.  One of the largest lakes in the region, it forms part of the border between Macedonia and Albania.  It is one of a handful of UNESCO World Heritage sites to be designated as both a natural and cultural site.  In this video, top contributor Uncle Damn gives us a bird's eye view of the area around the city of Ohrid on the lake's northeastern shore, one of the most popular destinations on this deep, crystal blue lake.

Top contributor Uncle Damn took an amazing dronie shot from an important monument in his home country of Macedonia.  It's called the Ilinden (or, variously, the Makedonium), and was completed in 1974.  It's situated in Kruševo, near the center of the country, which has the distinction of being Macedonia's highest town.  The monument is related to the anniversaries of two important events in the country's history, one in the early 20th century and another during its Nazi occupation in World War II.

While it is not as prominent as other alpine areas, the mountains of Macedonia in Europe's Balkan region offer spectacular skiing opportunities.  Most of the country is covered in steep hills and mountains, with the greatest concentrations in its northwestern and southern regions.  Stojan2s created this epic drone video from a ski trip to the Galicica National Park ski area, situated in the soutwestern corner of the country near the famous Lake Ohrid.
