Photographer's Note

I was on the same trip as Piotr, so I visited the same place. A rather difficult task for me to show my photos after his beautiful pictures.

From Ohrid, we went north through wonderful Mavrovo National Park to Canyon Matka. The cruise in the small boats was beautiful. We also visited a cave.

Matka is a canyon located west of central Skopje, Macedonia. Covering roughly 5,000 hectares, Matka is one of the most popular outdoor destinations in Macedonia and is home to several medieval monasteries. The Matka Lake within the Matka Canyon is the oldest artificial lake in the country.
Matka Canyon is home to a wide variety of plants and animals, some of which are unique to the area. Roughly 20% of the plant life found at Matka is endemic and only found here. The canyon is also home to 77 indigenous species of butterfly. The canyon is also home to the most venomous snake in south Europe the Viper. The canyon's caves are home to large populations of bats.
