Skopje, 12 October 2018 (MIA) – Skopje's Haemus Center for Scholarly Research and Promotion of Culture has launched its Destination Macedonia! campaign, which features educational tours across the country to popularize Macedonia's rich cultural heritage.
The first tour, "Skopje's Ottoman heritage," will take place on Oct. 14.
"Old Skopje Palaces" comes next on Oct. 21, followed by "In the Footsteps of Ancient Romans" on Oct. 28.
According to Haemus, all tours were designed to provide participants with an opportunity to learn about Macedonia's cultural heritage through first-hand experience, insight, and interaction.
"The kind of tour we organize is unusual and hard to come by in the local market," says Haemus director Vasilka Dimitrovska.
"Visitors gain new knowledge, but also share their experiences and information regarding the sites we visit. We pass by some locations every day, yet know very little about their anthropological significance."
Haemus's tours are part of UNESCO's Open Educational Resources program and the European Year of Culture initiative.
Some of the tours have received logistical support from the City of Skopje, and all participants are provided comprehensive guides published by the Agency for the Promotion and Support of Tourism. mr/13:10
