What to see?

The most important things to see when in Skopje can all be found nearby, either in the city itself, or in the surroundings close by. You can decide on visiting the peak of the mountain Vodno where the Millennium Cross is built, go to the Canyon Matka, or just take a walk in the city center and experience the urban spirit. For those who wish a more nostalgic feel, you can visit the Old Bazaar.

Vast, magnificent and inarguably beautiful, the Canyon Matka is easily Macedonia’s most distinguishable landmark – and an artificial wonder that you simply have to see to believe.

The Old Bazaar (Macedonian: Стара Чаршија, Stara Čaršija from the Turkish: Çarşı meaning marketplace, Albanian: Çarshia e Vjetër) in Skopje is the largest bazaar in the Balkans outside Istanbul.

The Mother Teresa Memorial House is dedicated to the humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mother Teresa and is located in her hometown Skopje, in Macedonia, where she lived from 1910 to 1928
