There are number of tourists daily travelling and visiting various places and sites in the Republic of Macedonia. For better navigation and discovering new places some of these tourists use travel guides. The purpose of this paper is to make a contribution to the history of tourism, and to the history of travel guide literature published for Macedonia. This paper presents the historical development of the printed travel guides in Macedonia, from the first printed in 1854 until today. Since the emergence of the first travel guide until today, we define three stages of development: the first from 1854 to 1944, the second from 1945 to 1991, and a third from 1991 onward. This paper gives a description of the oldest travel guides and a historical review of the existing travel guides presented in a summary table. For full accomplishment of the research, we have reviewed the existing literature related to travel guides and we have used the Internet for obtaining important information related to this specialized tourist literature.
