1b Travelling from Skopje (Macedonia) to Sofia (Bulgaria)

There is no direct railway line between Macedonia and Bulgaria. If you want to travel between the two countries by train, you will have to travel either via Serbia or Greece to do so.

If you travel via Serbia, travel from Skopje to Nis, then from Nis to Sofia. If you want to travel via Greece, you have to travel from Skopje to Thessaloniki then from Thessaloniki to Sofia.

However as both options require many hours of travelling you might instead choose to go by bus. Buses are available from Skopje directly to Sofia and are much quicker than the available options by train. Buy your ticket locally at the bus station.
