Old Bazaar, Skopje, Skopje

3.7
#1 of 10 in Shopping in Republic of Macedonia
Step back in time at Old Bazaar, Skopje, the city's primary historical center of trade and a showcase of historic Ottoman architecture. Located along the Vardar River in Skopje's traditional merchant quarter, the marketplace still buzzes with commerce today. Visit the bazaar and explore the multitude of shops, cafes, and other businesses that line its street. Note the mixture of both Turkish buildings--including bathhouses, mosques, caravanserais, and a clock tower--as well as remnants of Skopje's even earlier Byzantine past. Be sure to stop into one of the many eateries in the bazaar for a bite of some classic Macedonian food, including the meaty dish known as "chevapi."

  • This part of town is definitely worth a visit. Many nice restaurants and many shops with wide variety. Simply charming to walk around in these streets. I shaved me for a euro, fun experience of a pro shaves which was very nice.

  • We were disappointed by this market, where we see more an artisan work, where products and prices are very modern and close to ours, and where there is bad taste. The main interest is to have lunch on the terrace to observe the life of the Macedonians.
