This interactive, gamified experience captivated children and youth, offering insights into traditional Macedonian mythology, customs, and beliefs. Participants embarked on a journey armed with a ‘Mythic Map’, a ‘Magical Handbook’ and a plethora of specially crafted cards, tokens, puzzles, and challenges. Their mission: piece together these elements like a puzzle to unveil the secrets behind magical storytelling.

Creator and host of this unusual adventure was archaeologist Vasilka Dimitrovska, M.Sci, Director of HAEMUS, heritage consultant, certified interpreter, national coordinator of Interpret Europe for Macedonia  and founder of the “Young Explorer” and “Storytelling Skopje” interpretive programs.
