Macedoniacountry of the south-central Balkans. It is bordered to the north by Kosovo and Serbiato the east by Bulgariato Looking for small ladies in Macedonia south by Greeceand to the west by Albania. The capital is Skopje. The Pirin Mountains mark its eastern edge. The Republic of Macedonia occupies about two-fifths of the entire geographical region of Macedonia. The rest of the region belongs Looking for small ladies in Macedonia Greece and Bulgaria. Most people with a Macedonian national identity also refer to the region that constitutes their country as Vardar Macedonia, the Greek part of Macedonia as Aegean Macedonia, and the Bulgarian part of Macedonia as Pirin Macedonia.
In this article, unless otherwise indicated, the name Macedonia refers to the present-day state the Republic of Macedonia when discussing geography and history since and to the larger region as described above when used in earlier historical contexts. The region of Macedonia owes its importance neither to its size nor to its population but rather to its location at a major junction of communication routes—in particular, the great north-south route from the Danube River to the Aegean formed by the valleys of the Morava and Vardar rivers and the ancient east-west trade routes connecting the Black Sea and Istanbul with the Adriatic Sea.
Consequently, Macedonia forms a complex border zone between the major cultural traditions of Europe and Asia. Ottoman control was brought to an end by the Balkan Wars —13after which Macedonia was divided among Greece, Bulgaria, and Serbia.
The collapse of Yugoslavia led the Republic of Macedonia to declare its independence on December 19, The two major problems facing the Republic of Macedonia since its independence have been ensuring that its large Albanian minority enjoys the rights of full citizenship and gaining international recognition under its constitutional name and membership in international organizations in the face of strong opposition from Greece, which claims a monopoly on the use of the term Macedonia.
Geologically, Macedonia consists mainly of heavily folded ancient metamorphic rockswhich in the west have been eroded to reveal older granites. In the central region are found sedimentary deposits of more recent age.
Traversing the country from north to south is a series of active fault Looking for small ladies in Macedonia, along which earthquakes frequently occur.
The most severe of these Looking for small ladies in Macedonia recent history occurred at Debar in Skopje was largely destroyed by an earthquake in Macedonia is largely mountainous, with many peaks rising above the tree line at 6, feet 2, metres above sea level. The highest elevation is at Mount Korab 9, feet, or 2, metres on the Albanian border.
Where this has been cleared and often in the past overgrazedthe thin skeletal soils have been subjected to dramatic erosion and gullying. There are also several broad and fertile valleys that provide good potential for agriculture. The greater part of Macedonia about nine-tenths of its area drains southeastward into the Aegean Sea via the Vardar River and its tributaries.
Smaller parts of this basin drain into Lake Doiran Macedonian: Dojran and into the Aegean via the Strumica and Struma rivers. The convoluted and fractured geology of the area imposes upon many of these rivers erratic courses that frequently drive through narrow and sometimes spectacular Fuck finder in Lebu. Such formations facilitate the damming of rivers for electric power generation.
Macedonia stands at the junction of two main climatic zones, the Mediterranean and the continental. Periodically, air breaks through mountain barriers to the north and south, bringing dramatically contrasting weather patterns; one example is the cold northerly wind known as the vardarec.
Overall, there is a moderate continental climate: Annual precipitation is relatively light, between about 20 and 28 inches about and mm. Rainfalls of less than 1 inch Because of differences in local aspect and relief, there may be considerable variation in the climate, with the eastern areas tending to have milder winters and hotter, drier summers and the western more mountainous regions having more severe winters. The mountainous northwestern parts of Macedonia support large areas of forest vegetation.
On the lower slopes this is principally deciduous woodland, but conifers grow at elevations as high as 6, feet 2, metres. Some areas of forest have been cleared to provide rough summer pasture. The forests support a variety of wildlife, including Looking for small ladies in Macedonia pigswolvesbearsand lynx. The dry and warm summers result in an abundance of insect life, with species of grasshoppers much in evidence, along with numerous small lizards.
The population Looking for small ladies in Macedonia the Republic of Macedonia is diverse. At the beginning of the 21st century, nearly two-thirds of the population Looking for small ladies in Macedonia themselves as Macedonians.
Macedonians generally trace their descent to the Slavic tribes that moved into the region between the 6th and 8th centuries ce. Albanians are the largest and most-important minority in the Republic of Macedonia. According to the census, they made up about one-fourth of the population.
The Albanians—most of whom trace their descent to the ancient Illyrians—are concentrated in the northwestern part of the country, near the borders with Albania and Kosovo. Other much smaller minorities constituting less than 5 percent of the population each include the TurksRomaSerbs, Bosniaks, and Vlachs Aromani. The Turkish minority is mostly scattered across central and western Macedonia, a legacy of the year rule of the Ottoman Empire. The Macedonian language is very closely related to Bulgarian and Serbo-Croatian and is written in the Cyrillic script.
When Serbian rule replaced that of the Ottoman Turks inthe Serbs officially denied Macedonian linguistic distinctness and treated the Macedonian language as a dialect of Serbo-Croatian. The Macedonian language was not officially recognized until the establishment of Macedonia as a constituent republic of communist Yugoslavia in Religious affiliation is a particularly important subject in Macedonia because Looking for small ladies in Macedonia is so closely tied to ethnic and national identity.
With the exception of Bosniaks, the majority of Slavic speakers living in the region of Macedonia are Orthodox Christian. Macedonians, Serbs, and Bulgarians, however, have established their own Looking for small ladies in Macedonia Orthodox churches in an effort to assert the legitimacy of their national identities.
The majority Greeks in the region of Greek Macedonia, who also identify themselves as Macedonians, are Orthodox as well, but they belong to the Greek Orthodox Church. Turks and the great majority of both Albanians and Roma are Muslims. Altogether, about one-third of the population is of the Islamic faith.
Successive waves of migration, as well as economic and political modernization, have left their mark in a diversity of settlement patterns. The inhabitants of the highlands are generally shepherds.
In more fertile areas, small-scale subsistence and market-oriented agriculture are practiced. Several small market towns are of great antiquity. In Roman times Bitola was a commercial centre known as Heraclea Lyncestis.
Ohrid became a major administrative and ecclesiastical centre in the early Middle Ages. The coming of the Ottoman Turks in the 14th century promoted the growth of Skopje as a governmental and military centre and created large agrarian estates, which were later socialized by the communists and given over to extensive mechanized cultivation.
This latter process was responsible for the growth, beginning inof Kavardarci and Veles. Industrialization in the second half of the 20th century had a dramatic impact upon population distribution.
Acting as a reasonably effective counterforce to the pull of Skopje is the growth of tourism around Ohrid. At the beginning of the 21st century, about three-fifths of the population of Macedonia was urban. Historically, the Balkans Looking for small ladies in Macedonia experienced high rates of natural increase in population.
The rate declined remarkably in the 20th century in Looking for small ladies in Macedonia to industrialization and urbanization. The rate of natural increase in Macedonia at the end of the first decade of the 21st century was about three-fifths less than it had been in the mids. Birth rates for the same period declined relatively steadily by about one-fifth, to about three-fifths of the world average.
Movement from rural to urban areas in Macedonia in the early 21st century was much more common than the reverse. Emigration to other parts of Europe, as well as to North America and Australiahas also had a significant influence on demographic trends in Macedonia.
While this status undoubtedly brought much investment, several projects were placed without adequate attention to the supply of materials or access to markets. A prime example was the choice of Skopje as the site for a steel industry. About 70 percent of agricultural land was held privately, accounting for some 50 percent of output. However, privately owned enterprises were typically traditionalist in structure and outlook, and, even after Looking for small ladies in Macedonia liberalization of the communist system inthey were unable to develop a dynamic economic role.
Following the onset of the Yugoslav civil war inthe economic position of Macedonia became very precarious. United Nations sanctions against the rump Yugoslavia the federation of Serbia and Montenegro added Looking for small ladies in Macedonia these difficulties by throttling the transport of goods through Macedonia.
By the mids, however, Macedonia had begun to find new trading partners, and the economy began to prosper. Though gross domestic product GDP dipped at the turn of the 21st century, it rebounded quickly, and the country weathered the worldwide economic downturn that began in better than many other countries.
Nevertheless, unemployment remained high, exceeding 30 percent for much of the first decade of the 21st century. The main crops are tobacco, fruits including apples and grapesvegetables, wheat, rice, and corn maize. Viticulture and dairy farming are also important. The remainder comes from hydroelectricity. Manufacturing constituted less than one-fifth of GDP in Macedonia in the early 21st century and accounted for between one-tenth and one-fifth of employment.
Among the principal products associated with this industry are ferronickel, flat-rolled sheet steel, and seamed pipes. Automobile parts, electrical equipment, household appliances, and clothing are also produced, and there are wood- and plastic-processing industries. Imports included machinery, petroleum, and iron and steel.
The development of tourism in the Mavrovo-Ohrid area ensured new road building in the west. Airports at Skopje and Ohrid serve international destinations.
By more than half of Macedonians had Internet access, a fold increase in a period of just 10 years. There is an explicit separation of powers between the legislaturethe judiciaryand the executive. The prime minister and cabinet ministers, for example, do not have seats in the assembly. The president, who is elected to a five-year term, serves principally as a symbolic head of state and is the commander in chief of the armed forces; a president may serve no more than two terms.
In the constitution was amended to include a number of provisions aimed at protecting the rights of the Albanian minority. The Macedonian legal system is grounded Looking for small ladies in Macedonia civil law.
The judicial branch comprises basic and appellate courts, the Supreme Court, the Republican Judicial Council, and the Constitutional Court. The judges of the Constitutional Court are elected by the Sobranie. All citizens age 18 and Looking for small ladies in Macedonia are eligible to vote.
