    What to Expect
    Skopje is the capital of Macedonia. It is situated at a distance approximately 250 km from Sofia. During this day tour you will have the chance to visit one of the most bizarre cities on the Balkan Peninsula. Skopje is a mixture of authentic monuments from the Ottoman period, and new neo-classical buildings, complete with ornate columns and rooftop figures of nymphs.

    After the reconstruction of the new center has been done, as per the “Skopje 2014” project, the city became one of the popular destinations in Eastern Europe. Despite the highly divisive opinions on the new appearance, Skopje definitely is a must-see place.

    Itinerary: Our day tour will start with pick up from your hotel/accommodation. After approximately 3-hour transfer we will reach Skopje. The walking tour of the city will start from Skopje Fortress from where we will have the chance to admire a wonderful view of the city. Our next visit will be the Church of Holy Savior, which despite its simple construction hides fantastic iconostasis. We will continue towards Sultan Murat Mosques and the Old Bazaar, where we will have the chance to see Caravanserais (inns) from the Ottoman period, when Skopje was one of the main trade centers on the Balkans. We will stop to have a lunch a typical Macedonian restaurant. Afterwards we will continue our walk. We will cross Vardar River and start our exploration of the new part of the city. We will visit the new neo-classical square Macedonia and continue to Mother Teresa memorial house. The walking part of the tour will finish at the Gate Macedonia (newly built triumphal arch). The tour ends with drop off at your hotel/accommodation.
