Night-Trains in Macedonia
The Night-Trains in Macedonia, the FastTrain, are old but decent trains to let yourself be transported by during the night. There are plenty of options for various types of accomodations, from simple straight-up seats to shared compartments. These Macedonian Night-Trains can bring you all the way accross the Balkan area, from Skopje to Belgrade and Thessaloniki. This is the only way to travel outside of Macedonia by rail. From Belgrade there are connections all the way to Switzerland, and from Thessaloniki there are connections towards Bulgaria. Traveling in the Balkan area is an adventure, and these Night-Trains are prone to hours of delay. Even considering the customs-checks in the middle of the night, and the lack of information before and during travel, there is a certain charm while traveling on these Night-Trains to/from Macedonia. For all Night-Trains in Macedonia a supplement is required
