The Stone Bridge, Skopje

3.8
#2 of 25 in Sightseeing in Skopje
Bridge Tourist Spot
Walk across The Stone Bridge to admire the 15th-century Ottoman structure and take in sweeping views of the capital city, the river, and the mountains around you. Spanning the Vardar River and connecting Skopje's downtown with its Old Town, the bridge serves both as an important piece of infrastructure and one of the city's most enduring symbols. Originally constructed during the middle of the 15th century, the bridge has survived earthquakes, catastrophic floods, and an attempt by Nazi occupiers to destroy it. Make your way to the bridge and amble along its 214 m (702 ft) length, noting its sturdy construction of countless solid stone blocks, considered one of the area's finest examples of Ottoman architecture.

  • Historical significance including a famous execution on this site. Reconstructed many times. A walk along this is a must. Plenty other attractions are accessible through the bridge access.  more »
  • The old stone bridge links the city from old town area to new. Just over the bridge on old town side is a lovely statue commemorating mothers - well worth a look.  more »
  • Crossing from the square to the old fort and bazaar side. Great views of the great buildings and river. Good photo op.  more »

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.
