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.

  • This bridge, also called Dusan, recently built, wants to remember the old one, built at the turn of the Vardar River, built in the 6th century yet. under the Byzantine Empire of Giustiano. Combines the old part of Skopje with the new part and liaises with Macedonia Square at the old Bazaar. A walk is absolutely worth it

  • The bridge is beautiful and connects the new and the old Skopje beyond the hot walking, you have countless sculptures, the most interesting, in my opinion, a woman swimming placed inside the water, representing how the local population used to enjoy the River in ancient times, as today is not clear. The picture from there to see the square with the monument is pretty cool!

  • A lovely landmark linking Macedonia Square to the old Bazar. It's nicely lit at night for good photography.
