Macedonia (Greek: Μακεδονία) is a region in northern Greece.
The region is divided into three peripheries :
- West Macedonia
- Central Macedonia
- East Macedonia
- Olympos National Park
- Rhodope Mountains National Park
- Pangaion Hills
- Nestos Natural reserve area
Macedonia is the largest region of Greece in area and second-largest in population.
Greek is the official language of Greece and thus, the vast majority of the inhabitants of Macedonia speak it as their native language. English is spoken by many people, usually under the age of 40, and mostly in big cities like Thessaloniki or in tourist resorts, like Chalkidiki.
