The Republic of Macedonia is a land-locked South-Eastern European state. It is situated in the central part of the Balkan Peninsula. It borders the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia to the north, the Republic of Bulgaria to the east, the Republic of Greece to the south and the Republic of Albania to the west. Situated in this area of Europe and the Balkans, the Republic of Macedonia has a good geographical position. Such geographical features give broad opportunities for geographic connections, traffic communications and economic links. The Republic of Macedonia belongs to the group of small continental states, because it occupies an area of 25,713 km2 (9929 sq miles) and has a population of 1,945,932 inhabitants (according to the 1994 Census). Its population comprises 66.6% Macedonians, 22.7% Albanians, 4% Turks, 2.2% Romas, 2.1% Serbs and 2.4% others. The capital city is Skopje.
Further National Information
* The name ‘Macedonia’ is not officially recognised by the United Nations, due to the ojections of Greece, which has a province with the same name. The short-hand ‘FYR Macedonia’ or ‘FYROM’ are commonly used by international organisations such as NATO and the UN. Negotiations to settle the name issue are continuing.
