Explore Macedonia! We offer various tours and trips around the country
SKOPJE CITY TOUR
Skopje is the capital of Macedonia. A large part of the city is newly built, as many buildings collapsed during the earthquake in 1963. The city’s most attractive neighborhood is Skopje old town with its bazaar. The area is full of authentic shops and restaurants, and home to The Church of Holy Savior and numerous monuments from the Ottoman Empire era. This particular part of the city has a unique charm, the five hundred years of Ottoman influence in the region has left a strong mark, giving Skopje a distinct oriental feel and look. Many interesting and important historical and cultural monuments from that period have remained intact and on this tour we will visit most of them. Among the most prominent sites is the Sultan Murat Mosque (also known as Mustafa Pasha Mosque, famously built by Sultan Murat II), the Ottoman Inns (Hans), and the Old Bazaar which is a genuine Balkan experience with its many small streets and houses, handicraft shops, restaurants and coffee places. Once we cross the River Vardar over the ancient Stone Bridge which is the symbol of Skopje and a characteristic element of the coat of arms of the city and head to the modern part of town, we will arrive on the right side of the river. At the newly rebuilt Macedonia square, we’ll see the grandiose statue of Alexander the Great taking center stage, while smaller statues and buildings with eye-catching architecture surround it. Walking along the main street, Macedonia Street, we’ll come to the Mother Teresa’s memorial house. The Peace Nobel Prize winner Mother Teresa was born and brought up not so far away from the memorial house.
