The Stone Bridge, Skopje

(3.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Skopje, Macedonia, headquarters of the square is the ideal start of the old-old stone bridge over the Vardaron. Now the two shores and Vardar-world-class buildings.

  • We got a free upgrade because the satellite TV did not work. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant has on individual requests. We have just booked a follow-up visit in March.

  • The city is very stylish in its old town and the many statues to the distinguished Macedonians make downtown a real attraction. Out of all the big statue of Alexander the great. The bridge is an authentic work of art if it is thought that dates back to the 13th century
