Road P504 is an amazing road located in southwestern Republic of Macedonia. The road links two lakes and is 27.2km long. It’s closed in winters. There are a lot of twists and turns on this mountain road but the nature and views are spectacular.
It's an old military road. There are sheer drops virtually along the entire route and enough hairpins to make a whirling dervish dizzy. The road even in summer is bit difficult due to the potholes occurring during winter months and they are not always repaired on time. The road runs along the National Park Galicica. It includes more than 20 hairpin turns and offers wonderful views.
There are sheer drops virtually along the entire route and enough hairpins to make a whirling dervish dizzy. This route is not recommended if your passengers are prone to car sickness.

It runs between Lake Ohrid one of Europe's deepest and oldest lakes and Lake Prespa. The road climbs up to Galicica Pass, at 1.660m above the sea level.
