(2.4/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I'm not sure of the vintage of the bridge, but it's lined with statues of saints from Macedonian history. Really reminded me of a certain bridge in Prague that's been around for centuries. 
  • Beautiful bridge, with classical music playing in the luminaires. Built in 2014 and with 29 statues. Romantic.

  • Bridge across the Vardar. With Mother Teresa Square on the north side and South side café and restaurant-lined streets. On both sides of the bridge were arranged alternately and shiny street lights brand new statue 10 pieces as through. Compared to traditional heavy feel the historic stone bridges on the upper side, was built in the Ottoman period (kamenn_mosuto), as well as eye bridge next to the excess decoration too. Maybe this is part of a development project in Skopje, but wrong direction somewhere like.
