Based on the classic definition of “citizenship”, it means the direct legal link between a citizen and a state. However, starting from recent and modern developments, it can be concluded that this concept of citizenship is undergoing constant changes. This is the result of the weakening of the dependence of the citizen on the state and the changing of the boundaries of this concept from a regional or state concept to a universal one. After the 1990s various forms of citizenship appeared, one of which is the citizenship of the European Union, but very different from the classical one. This form of citizenship for the first time emerged with the entry into force of the Maastricht Treaty in 1993. In this paper, the rights of EU citizens included in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU will be analyzed in detail. Within these rights include: the right to vote and to stand as a candidate at elections to the European Parliament; the right to vote and to stand as a candidate at municipal elections; the right of access to documents; the right to petition; freedom of movement and of residence, which are directly related to the EU citizen. In a word, these are rights that can be enjoyed by citizens of R. North Macedonia after full membership in the European Union.
