Skopje sights and attractions

Skopje lies at the heart of the Balkan Peninsula, straddling the Vardar River in the Republic of Macedonia. It is the country's largest city, skillfully blending traditions that span 2,000 years and modern ideals, as the country's major economical, educational and cultural centre. Having always been at the centre of power in Macedonia, Skopje offers visitors much to discover. Historical monuments, archeological sites and old bazaars, Islamic structures, and ancient fortresses all showcase the impact of Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman and Yugoslav rule, while the city's contemporary skyline dances with futuristic steel, glass, and concrete architecture.

From exploring Ottoman and Byzantine-era sights to shopping in an old Turkish bazaar, Skopje's attractions create lasting memories.
