Skopje

Welcome to Skopje, the city where diversities unite

The largest city of Macedonia, Skopje is home to various events, festivals, happenings throughout the year. Since very early ages Skopje was prone to transformations in order to adapt to the circumstances. Owing to that, currently the city carries the spirit of Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman and Yugoslavian periods. While the river Vardar divides the city to two halves, Stone Bridge connects the two sides in a most joyous way. In this city, the ancient meets the contemporary, and time travel becomes an everyday routine. During the Roman period the city was known under the name Scupi, which probably comes from the Greek ἐπίσκοπος, i.e. episcopus (lit. “watcher, observer”). The Skopje Fortress, Kale, graciously stands on the north bank of Vardar River as if to watch over the city through centuries. Come and be a wanderer in the perennial alleys of Skopje, where every corner is a hidden gem.
