Skopje Art Bridge, Skopje

3.3
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.

    Very impressive bridge in the middle of the town. Amazing at dusk and dawn!

    Definitely you will enjoy ... view of the river, classical music in the background, small lessons of history ... worth to be seen!

    The bridge is nice, with a water fountain in the center, but all the statues and fake architecture surrounding it is off-putting

    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 :)

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.
