ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the history of Macedonia, a country in south central Europe. The country has been a crossroads for both traders and conquerors moving between Europe and Asia Minor. This gave Macedonia a rich and varied cultural and historical tradition. It came under the Byzantine Empire with the fall of the Western Roman Empire. The Ottoman Empire ruled the country for four centuries. It became one of the constituent republics of Yugoslavia after the end of World War II. It gained independence in 1991.
