You are on a plane over Europe. The captain announces that for some reason you have to land on an airport named "Macedonia". In which country do you think you are landing

You are in the country of Macedonia, or the Republic of Macedonia. It is a landlocked country in Europe. Declared it's independence from yugoslavia, Sept 8th 1991. In 1993 it was admitted to the United Nations under the provisional name The Former Yugoslav Republic Of Macedonia. the name is pending a resolution of the dispute with Greece over the name. Did I win? What is my prize?

hey I'm from the land in which you are landing :))) airport in Skopje now it's with new name "Alexander the Great". So if you have to land on an airport named "Alexander the Great" you must know that you are landing in Macedonia.
