Bitola Museum re-opens famous Heraclea Lyncestis mosaics for the public

Expert teams from the Bitola Museum prepared the mosaics in the ancient city of Heraclea Lyncestis for the visitors. The mosaics are covered with sand every winter to protect them from the snow and cold, and re-opened with the coming of the spring.

The tourists, coming with a charter flight from Amsterdam, booked their holidays through tour-operator "Corendon" and local partner "Fibula Travel".

The tourists were welcomed at the Ohrid airport, some coming for the first time, while others as regular guests in Macedonia. According to them, the good food, the favorable weather and the hospitality are the reasons for their visit to Macedonia.

The tourists making their reservations via tour-operator "TUI Arke Travel" are set to arrive in Ohrid on May 10.

The tour-operators offering Macedonia as a summer destination say the sale of summer packages has risen by about 20 percent compared to the same period last year.

"This is owed to the new programmes, such as the 'all inclusive' service, but also the numerous trips offered to tourists", said Asim Medjedovic of "Fibula Travel".

Zoran Krstevski, general manager of company TAV, which operates the two Macedonian airports, voiced satisfaction from the return of tourists from the Benelux states.

"We expect about 30000 tourists at the Ohrid airport this year. Wizz Air launches the London and Basel flights on June 10 and July 1 respectively. Along with the flights from Switzerland, Austria and the charter flights, we expect an increase in the number of tourists", stressed Krstevski.

Corendon is set to operate three charters per week during the coming summer season, the same as TUI Arke Travel.

The last group of tourists from the Benelux will depart Macedonia in mid-October. According to tour-operators' estimates, about 25000 tourists from Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg are set to spend their 2015 summer holidays in Macedonia. ik/12:40
