Imagine a place that’s a mish-mash of people and cultures, a territory that’s been owned and fought over by empires and kingdoms over the centuries and where all of those players have left behind clues that they, too, were there.
It’s easy to imagine such a city, because it’s called Skopje. The capital of Macedonia is a safe, cultural melting pot in the Balkans that is unique and which is becoming increasingly popular with adventurous travellers like you.
Skopje is a diverse destination where you can step into an Ottoman old town, discover exotic-looking Orthodox churches and monasteries and mosques and behold the numerous new monumental heroic statues and buildings being built in the neoclassical style - it’s truly a city with deep traditions that’s also being reinvented!
And there’s no shortage of things to do in Skopje, either. Check out the Kale Fortress above the city that dates back to the 6th century, peruse the National Gallery which was once a Turkish bathhouse, or get some fresh air in the gorgeous Matka Canyon area outside of the city, where you can go hiking or canoeing, or visit the caves there.
Prices for rooms, food and attractions in Skopje are extremely reasonable - some say Macedonia may be one of the least expensive countries in Europe, so be sure to enjoy the charms of this wonderful place that won’t completely empty your wallet. Book your ticket to this Balkan treasure now!
