Skopje

3.6
Bodies of Water · Bridges · Historic Walking Areas
A melting pot of cultures from Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, and Yugoslavian rule, Skopje serves as the nation's eclectic capital. The Old Turkish Bazaar was one of the city's only sites left unharmed by an earthquake in the 1960s, and today it still represents a mixing place for Christian and Muslim locals as well as tourists. Since the earthquake, much of the country's largest city has been rebuilt and modernized, and now boasts a vibrant nightlife and art scene. Nevertheless, the past remains present here, and visitors are still wowed by the historical attractions, some dating back to ancient times.

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.
