From the majestic fortresses that stand as sentinels of the past to the lively squares and green spaces, Skopje offers a unique mix of Balkan charm and urban adventure.

Exploring Skopje

Skopje is fascinating because it shares its stories through special places and its people. Start exploring in the center at the Stone Bridge. This famous bridge links today's city to its past with the Ottomans and Romans. Walk over the bridge to get to the Old Bazaar, a big, old market in the Balkans. There, the smells of spices and the noise of people making things will make you feel like you're in a different time.

Continue exploring to find the Skopje Fortress, also called Kale. Here, you can walk on old walls and see great views of the city. Close by, you can learn about Mother Teresa's life at her Memorial House; she was born in Skopje in 1910.
