Situated in the heart of the Balkans, Skopje is a beautiful metropolis which is fast becom-ing one of the region’s most loved cities! With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of 4 things you absolutely must do whilst in Skopje, the capital city of Macedonia…
1. Discover the Old Bazaar! Dating back to the 12th century, this stunning collection of artisan shops stock all manner of goodies from jewellery to arts, plus there’s coffee shops and hamams along the historic cobbled streets – it’s sure to be a treat you won’t want to miss!
2. Scale the Kale Fortress – offering spectacular views, rich history and unquestionable beauty all in equal measure, Kale Fortress still towers over this wonderful city 1,500 years after it was built!
3. Pay your respects at Mother Theresa House – Mother Theresa was actually born in Skopje and although her childhood home no longer stands, a beautiful memorial house has been built in her honour! Covered in white doves to signify peace, this popular at-traction offers tranquility and remembrance in an otherwise busy city.
4. Hang out in Central Square – what better way to learn about a city and its inhabitants than to get amongst the hustle and bustle! Grab a coffee and people-watch, admire the impressive statue of Alexander the Great or get talking to the locals in one of the many bars and restaurants.
But that’s not all! This wonderful city has a whole lot more to offer, so why not go and ex-plore it for yourself!
