Hello everybody, I'm leaving for a 3-day weekend in Sofia and I'll try visiting some stuff outside the city (I rented a car). Even if the stay is short, I'd still want to try to cross the border to Macedonia (since I should have visited Skopje in May with a friend but I broke an arm so I couldn't go). Since I'll probably return to Bulgaria with my GF to see Plovdiv and Varna, it's OK to do an all-day excursion outside the country. My questions are:
Apart from Skopje, is there any notable place I should see around there?
I also thought about a Sofia / Skopje / Niš triangle, but... is it possible to cross to/from Serbia? What's the political situation with EU and stuff? Is the Ukrainian war making it less safe in any way for tourists?
