Bridge
Stroll across Skopje Art Bridge and inspect the 29 life-size statues portraying famous Macedonian artists and musicians. Fourteen sculptures executed in a realistic manner stand atop the high pedestals on each side of the bridge. At the center notice the only sculpture representing two people, one sitting holding a book and the other standing. Running parallel to this bridge is another lined with depictions of historical figures, which leads to the archaeological museum. Both were constructed as part of the Skopje 2014 project, which aimed to celebrate the country's cultural and historical legacy.

  • Looks nice but it's a bit too much, too many statues and it's copying other European cities since this is recent and looks like the bridges from other major cities. But the whole "new" Skopje is like that, so, oh well :)
  • Definitely you will enjoy ... view of the river, classical music in the background, small lessons of history ... worth to be seen!
  • Beautiful. I kept crossing many times on several subsequent evenings for a casual stroll and enjoyed the atmosphere.
  • Great place to hang out. When I visited there was music playing outside. Very nice
