3.9
The Skopje Aqueduct is an aqueduct and archaeological site located in the village of Vizbegovo 2km northwest of central Skopje, Macedonia. The Skopje Aqueduct is the only aqueduct in Macedonia, and one of three largest and well preserved in the former Yugoslavia along with Diocletianus Aqueduct near Split, Croatia and Bar Aqueduct in Montenegro.The question of when the Skopje Aqueduct was built is unclear. There are three theories: during the reign of Rome ; according to this theory the aqueduct fed water to Legionary settlement Scupi.during the reign of Byzantine Empire ; according to this theory, the aqueduct shipped water to the new settlement Justiniana Prima.during the reign of Ottoman Empire; according to this theory the aqueduct was built in the 16th century for a large number of Turkish public hamams. This aqueduct was in use until the eighteenth century. Only about 386m with 55 arches of this structure of stone and brick remain. It is assumed that the aqueduct took water from the spring Lavovec, 9km northwest from Skopje and brought water to city center.

  • The aqueduct for me personally just a pile of stones, but what struck me so breathless journey on it and getting to know the old Skopje, not the image of where everything is beautiful and clean, but where are the street rozborene people choose and the garbage polorozpadnute homes and zatoulani dogs:) Worth seeing! I recommend walk:)

  • We made it out to the aqueduct - along a bumpy road in a taxi! It was worth the visit to see this fascinating piece of history. I was impressed with the scale of the construction.  more »
  • The aqueduct is located at a considerable distance from the main fresh "attractions" the Macedonian capital, but it just went to him for a favor-do not go here, the crowds here most often no one walks. So you will have a lot of time on the beautiful pictures or on a romantic stroll next to Macedonian cows, goats, hens and dogs. Pass and go to aqueduct better and safer just by Boulevard (northern part of Skopje).

  • I hawe been there dont miss
  • Is beautifully for watching
  • nice and no one knows this place
  • If you are with a car, it is not difficult to reach. Just come from the Boulevard Slovenia road (from the Northern city side instead of the South). From the Boulevard Slovenia, go south in the direction of the military base (go south from the Boulevard Slovenia). And take directly the first road to the left. This is a dirt road and we felt a bit like; is this going okay???, but it will lead you directly to the aquaduct.
  • Nice old structure.
