Percentage participation of tourist profit of the Northeastern mountain region in the total profit of RM
From Table no. 52 the difference of the board and non-board expenditure in the last 3-year period can be seen, which is logical. The amount of the total expenditure in relation to the profit in the service establishments in the Republic of Macedonia has a too low percentage of participation. The board expenditure of the region participates with something more than 4% on average and increases in the analyzed period in insignificant values. In 2013 the board expenditure is 4,87%, whereas the non-board expediture notes a decrease in the analyzed period and an insignificant participation of 0,55% for the last year. Conclusions The dominant tourist destination of Macedonia is Ohrid lake, or the city of Ohrid, as well as the city of Struga and the surrounding areas around the Ohrid lake. The biggest part of accommodation capacities are located in the region of Ohrid lake. The bigger number of hotels in Macedonia are to be found in the capital city of Skopje and in Ohrid; In this moment there are 2 hotels in Macedonia connected to internation hotel chains (Holiday Inn and Ramada). The hotel brands focus its development strategies mainly on Skopje as the capital and largest city in Macedonia. The mountain resorts in Macedonia are still outside of the focus of the big hotel brands. In the Eastern and Northeastern regions only a few accommodation capacities are located, and the only tourist destination is Berovo and Berovo lake. Close by the Carev Vrv locality there are no significant accommodation capacities. The vicinity of the lake Kalimacni creates preconditions for development of several types of alternative tourism and creation of an integral toruist offer for 365 days.
