Bus
A number of bus lines connect Macedonia with all neighbouring countries and other European cities. Buses are frequent, and offer relatively inexpensive fares and professional service. Usually they depart from Skopje bus station.
Travelling on public inter-city buses in Macedonia used to be quite an interesting experience, since it usually included loud folk music and the risk of having to travel next to very different people with sometimes not so pleasant habits, subject to many urban legends and jokes. At present, public buses have improved and most of them have air-conditioning as well. Still, if you decide to travel by a public inter-city bus, do check it first before buying a ticket.
