The North Macedonia’s capital, Skopje, is known for its warm hospitality and has made a name for itself as a city break destination. Skopje is located in the centre of the Balkans, approximately halfway between Belgrade and Athens.
Visitors can visit the city’s historic bazaar, explore the Kale fortress and take in the rugged beauty of the nearby Matka Canyon, before sampling some of Macedonia’s finest foods and beverages.
Some of the many cultural sites include:
Skopje is relatively close to the many historical sites in North Macedonia, such as the city of Ohrid and lake Ohrid (one of only 28 sites that are part of UNESCO’s World Heritage that are Cultural as well as Natural sites), the ancient city of Stobi, Isa Beg Hammam, the megalithic observatory “Kokino” – an archaeo-astronomical site, and many more.
There is a diverse and exciting nightlife in Skopje, with the city center and the City Park both home to a wide choice of bars, restaurants, and nightclubs
