ABOUT SKOPJE

Welcome to Skopje, the capital of the Republic of Macedonia, a city located in the heart of the Balkan Peninsula, at the crossroad of vital communications, a city with more than two thousand years old tradition.

We encourage you to take a walk along the beautiful quay of the river Vardar, to stroll along the narrow streets of the Old Bazaar, which is the biggest bazaar preserved in the Balkans today, to climb up the Upper Town (the "Kale"), in order to feel the spirit of the 1500 years' old fortress and enjoy the panorama of Skopje, to visit St. Pantelejmon church and admire the fresco ”Lamentation of Christ”, bearing the first signs of the Renaissance.

You can feel the treasures of Skopje and visit the Islamic monuments Sultan Murat’sMosque and the Daut Pasha Hamam. Skopje is internationally famous for being the birthplace of Mother Teresa. Despite the turbulent history of the Balkans, Skopje has blossomed into a thriving, stimulating city to explore, defining itself as superb tourist destination.
