If you're like me, when the country of North Macedonia is discussed, it seems like the main topic of conversation should be ancient history. While the area does have a very long history, it also has many beautiful natural features to explore today.

8. The highest mountain in Macedonia is also the highest mountain in Albania. What is this border-straddling alpine giant?

From Quiz The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia

Answer: Mount Korab

In the 2001 Macedonian Insurgency, Mount Korab's border status worked against it, as the area surrounding the Macedonia/Albania border was saturated with land mines to prevent Albanian guerrillas from crossing over. The area on the Albanian side is much safer, though it seems that would-be climbers have had trouble from time to time with aggressive dogs!

9. Jordan is known for its city of Petra (carved directly into the rock), and Egypt is known for its pyramids. Macedonia is known for its "stone town" made of natural "earth pyramids" near what village?

From Quiz The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia

Answer: Kuklica

The Stone Town of Kuklica is a striking natural formation of natural stone pillars, some over 30 feet high, which have eroded out of the surrounding hills. The 120+ pillars look, to the romantic eye, somewhat like people, giving rise to legends telling of a bigamist's wedding party turned to stone for their disrespect, or an invading army flash-frozen in the wasteland they created. In more geologic terms, the pillars are a result of uneven erosion. The volcanic hills surrounding Kuklica were formed by volcanic activity. Portions of the hill cooled very quickly, resulting in a soft outer composition of glass and ash known as ignimbrite. Within the ignimbrite, more solid granite bodies formed as the lava cooled more slowly. Over time, the soft ignimbrite has worn away, leaving the more durable columns.

10. How many at least partially recognized countries border North Macedonia?

From Quiz North Macedonia Mania!

Answer: Five

The countries are Greece on the south, Bulgaria on the east, Albania on the west, and Serbia and Kosovo to the north. Kosovo's status as a country is controversial.

From Quiz North Macedonia Mania!

Mount Korab is 2,764 meters (9,396 feet) high. Mount Olympus, the mythical home of the Greek gods, is the tallest point in Greece, Ben Nevis is the highest point of Scotland and Great Britain. Grauspitz is the highest point of the tiny European principality of Liechtenstein.
