Bigger, better, more up to date Macedonia guide

Following my trip in May, I have finally got around to updating the Macedonia pages in Balkanology. You'll find a new guide to Skopje and its very interesting surroundings, including Matka Lake and Tetovo. There is also a page about the Pelagonia, covering Bitola, Prilep, and Krushevo. And the Lake Ohrid page has been expanded to cover more excursions around the lake, such as Struga, Vevčani, and Galičica National Park.

New guide to hiking in Montenegro

Montenegro is potentially a great country for hiking, but up to now it has been frustratingly difficult to get hold of relevant, up to date information in English. So I was very pleased to hear that Cicerone have just published a guide to The Mountains of Montenegro.

The guidebook includes single-day hikes and multi-day treks. Not surprisingly Durmitor National Park features strongly, but the guide also covers ranges that are less well known to foreign visitors, such as Orjen and Prokletije.
