Kale, Skopje

(1.9/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Set atop the highest point in the historic Old Town, Kale has endured war, neglect, and natural disasters over the centuries and today stands as one of the city's major sights. Hike your way via a small hill up to the fortress, originally constructed during the 6th century, and explore the grounds. Wander around the interior, surrounded by stone walls, watch towers, and sturdy gates, many of which have been restored since the destruction of the 1963 Skopje earthquake. Be sure to bring your camera to take advantage of the sweeping view from the top over the city, the river, and surrounding mountain scenery. Kale is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Skopje Edition.

  • In the winter, it is beautiful alone his ways. It's fun to course. Without having others constantly to himself. But is again m didn't spread. It is extremely smooth and very dangerous on the steps. Really nothing for trembling people. The ways are unfortunately not all accessible. But run for 1-2 hours is it. Maybe in the summer, when Tourimassen stream again a highlight

  • View is amazing,but there is nothing else to do, or to see. Nista specijalno, sem pogleda na Skoplje, ne mozete tamo provesti mnogo vremena uprijatnoj setnji, nije kao Kalemegdan. 
  • A leisurely walk up to and along the old Fortress gives you the feeling of the ancient history located here. You can see the layers of culture built up one stone layer at a time.
