Skopje is the capital of the Republic of Macedonia which is one of the ‘Balkan Counties’ and is located in South Eastern Europe. Some people still refer to it as ex-Yugoslavia, but it has had its own identity for more than 22 years.
This country has had such a diverse history and has been shaped by the Roman Empire, The Ottomans and has even had a Communist influence too. In the last few decades it has taken on a more European feel with Dutch, Italian, German and Turkish playing more of role in its growth.
Add all of the above factors together and you can see why Macedonia is so unique both culturally and historically and Skopje is the best example of this.
The ‘Stone Bridge’ which connects the new and old towns of Skopje and runs into the main square is a very famous structure. It is built over the river Vardar and is an essential and well used structure. It is said to be the point where the Muslim and Christian faiths meet, or are separated, depending on your point of view. Over its existence this bridge has seen many historical events, not all with good outcomes for those taking part.
Skopje has statues of King Phillip 11 and Alexander The Great, two of its best known sons. It is also the home of Mother Teresa Museum, she being their best known daughter.
Skopje city centre is very compact, so everything can be seen and visited whilst walking around the capital, such as the; Museums, Winery’s, Parks, Churches and Mosques etc.
Whereas the Main Square has a modern and stylist European feel to it, when you walk over the ‘Stone Bridge’, you feel like you have gone back in time and it is far more traditional. The buildings and small narrow streets of the ‘Old Town’ are quaint and charming. Then there is ‘the market’ which has a busy bustling atmosphere with vibrant sounds and smells filling the air.
Macedonia has 270 sunny days a year, 45 mountain ranges over 2,000 metres high, 50 lakes, and over a 1000 churches. It also has over 5000 archaeological sites throughout its beautiful landscape too, so whether it is your camera, iPad or phone, your picture collection will be vast.
Another city in Macedonia definitely worth a visit is Ohrid, which is a massive tourist destination and is in the south of the country. It is surrendered by beautiful and scenic mountain ranges and even has a number of beaches. It has one of the oldest and deepest lakes in Europe and attracts visitors from around the world. It has a number of modern and traditional bars and restaurants where you can sample the freshly caught fish and locally grown fruit and vegetables.
Macedonian Wine is beginning to get worldwide acclaim and there are many Winery’s throughout the country. Visiting one or more of these is highly recommended, not just to taste the wine and traditional food, but to learn about the different regions and the actual wine making process.
Even though Skopje is the Capital, the prices for virtually everything remains low compared to many others cities throughout Europe. Beer and coffee approximately EUR 1.25, bottle of wine EUR 3.25 and a main meal in a restaurant for EUR 4.50.
Skopje and Macedonia in general, promotes it’s self as being a friendly and safe place to visit as it does not suffer from the crime levels seen in many major European cities. The locals and worldwide travellers have only recently discovered it as a tourist destination, so visit now, before everyone finds out about it!!
