SKOPJE

Two days in the capital of the Republic of Macedonia, in the center of the Balkan Peninsula. We tasted some local specialities, enjoyed parking just stone away from major monuments and experienced local way of clubbing. Over time it has experienced Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman rule. The 15th century Stone Bridge connects the Ottoman Old Bazaar (Čaršija) on the Vardar River‘s north bank with Macedonia Square and a statue of Alexander the Great to the south. The Skopje Fortress, or Kale, overlooking the river, has defended the city for centuries.
