Tetovo, Republic of Macedonia

Each city has its own story.. Ours is a beautiful, peaceful and colorful one told in Albanian, Macedonian, Roma and Turkish, cherished and nurtured by a variety of cultural symbols, seen through the lenses of Islam and Christianity and lived in the simplicity of common human needs, dreams and aspirations. Therefore, we stand united behind our natural urge to love, respect and enjoy the perfect interplay of diversity in our society. Our city is a vibrant mixture of ethnicities, cultures and religions and we wouldn’t even imagine to have it any other way.

Teuta Arifi, Mayor of Tetovo
