A shortstop in one of the oldest cities in Macedonia. The city has been founded as Heraclea Lyncestis in the middle of the 4th century B.C. by Philip II of Macedon. The city was also the last capital of Ottoman Rumelia. It was really long walk to the archeological park from the place where we parked. It took us some time and we got there just a few minutes before closing, but the guard left us there to scroll around to get some last pictures before sunset.
Our first visit – August 16, 2018
Our second stop was for overnight and to our surprise, the city developed a lot in the last few years, the main lively pedestrian zone was full of new shops, cafes, and restaurants. We took our dinner at Ravena (Spaghetti Carbonara – 250 MKD, Local cheese fondue – 260 MKD, Skopsko beer – 0,5 l / 100 MKD) and next day super cheap lunch at Vino bar Bure (Pork ribs – 299 MKD, Chicken Alfredo – 269 MKD, Mineral water – 0,75 l / 89 MKD). Huge parking is just a few steps away.
