Because of its location on the border between Greece and the rest of Europe, hundreds of thousands of refugees, mostly from Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq, traveled through Macedonia in 2015 and 2016. Since borders closed in 2016, the situation has since stabilized, but some refugees still remain and seek asylum in the country.
