Kouzon Corporation was founded in October 1997 in Vienna, Austria under the name of Kouzon and Co. as a tour operator for the territory of Austria. In 1998 the company changed its location to Skopje, North Macedonia, and focused its activities to the Balkan countries. Besides its first main activity, Kouzon started working as a student service agency, mainly with the Work and Travel to the USA programs intended for full-time students. In 1998 Kouzon started operating as a recruitment agency for the biggest cruises companies in the world such as Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Celebrity Cruises, Azamara Club Cruises, Carnival Cruise Line, Princess Cruises, MSC Cruises, Viking Ocean Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, etc. and we started using the commercial name of Kouzon Corporation.
