The paper presents geomagnetic investigations carried out in the territory of the Republic of Macedonia. It also gives the geologic and geographic location of the country on the Balkan Peninsula. The detailed description of the tectonic setting contains reference of the neotectonic distribution. The paper presents investigations that commenced in the 19th century and those carried out in 2003. Geomagnetic investigations have been separated from investigations of the normal magnetic field and those of the anomalous geomagnetic field and presented in a chronologic manner. Analysis of activities carried out during geomagnetic investigations indicate that the most intense were those of 1950s and 1960s for the discovery mineral deposits and those in 1970s for the investigation of normal magnetic field. Of note are investigations that have been carried out since 2002 in order to study the normal magnetic field in the territory. During this short period of time a grid of repeat stations was established and the site for the construction of the geomagnetic observatory in the country was selected.
