Kale, Skopje

3.0
#3 of 15 in Historic Sites in Skopje
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. With our international travel planner, Skopje attractions like Kale can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Nothing fantastic, nice view of the city, no shops or historic museum to see here. Go if you have nothing eldse to do. It's a short walk from the city.  more »
  • The fortress in Skopje is not very special, but there's good views of the city from up there. You may visit it if you do a free tour  more »
  • It was very sad to see that such a great potential is literally falling apart. I guess the fortress will be a nice place to visit in a couple of years when the city starts to reconstruct it, right now...  more »

Where to stay in Skopje

The capital of Macedonia and a city of numerous sights, Skopje offers a good selection of places to stay despite its relatively modest size. Even though most hotels cluster in the center of town, you can easily find accommodation in other neighborhoods too. The selection ranges from several high-end hotels and fully-furnished apartments to many economical but charming places to stay. The city wide selection of hostels, many of which are very close to the city center, appeal to younger travelers.
