    Perfect for photos
    This is an awesome stone bridge. It crosses the Vardar River from the newly built side to the Old bazaar. Pictures taken on this bridge will be very gorgeous, in any direction, because the backdrop is beautiful. The bridge is in a truly beautiful part of the city.

    Wonderful bridge
    This stone bridge is one of the greatest attractions of Skopje. It is several centuries old and connects the main square with the old bazaar. The centre of Skopje has changed completely in recent decades, only the old bridge has remained the same. There are many buffets nearby where you can enjoy a drink with a view of the old bridge.

    SIMPLE BUT SYMBOLIC BRIDGE
    This bridge is very symbolic in Skopje and is made up of very large breeze block type stone with numerous arches underneath that spread across the river. It lights up at night giving off a yellowish colour to the bridge but as the bridge of art or the eye bridge, there's nothing on it. It's a wonderful sight nevertheless. Just in front of it on top of the river flow is a small quaint statue of a diver along with the feet of another pertruding from the water as if they had just dived in

    Picturesque Landmark, Simple Charm
    The Stone Bridge in Skopje is a beautiful architectural feature that adds character to the city's landscape. This well-preserved structure offers a pleasant walkway with nice views of the river and surrounding areas. While visually appealing and historically significant, it's a straightforward attraction without additional features or activities. A quick visit is enough to appreciate its simple beauty, making it a solid but not extraordinary stop on a Skopje tour.

The elegant arched stone bridge crossing the Vardar river in Skopje links the main city with the older part where the Old Bazaar is located. Being pedestianised it is always popular with locals and tourists alike. Unfortunately beggers have also taken over at the city end and can be an unwelcome sight.

Although possibly 'under-decorated' the old Stone Bridge, spanning the Vardar River, is still very elegant. It offers some wonderful photographic opportunities of itself, the river and the surrounding, impressive buildings along the river banks.
The Bridge connects Macedonia Square to the Old Bazaar area, offering a lovely walk from one to the other. While the Bridge can be crowded, we were lucky enough to be there on a weekend, when locals weren't, so it wasn't too busy. I've also read reviews critical of the amount of graffiti on the Bridge. Yes, there is some, but again, perhaps we were lucky and there wasn't anywhere near the amount suggested. Perhaps it is cleaned reasonably regularly

This is a beautiful and well preserved bridge across the Vardar River. You will be amazed by the new surrounding and how the historical bridge is preserved. It guides you from the Macedonia square to the Old bazaar. Have a look from the top of the bridge to the beautiful square.
Visit duration: 20 minutes.
Free.

It's a nice enough area in daylight, but at night, the bridge really shines. Very nice in the summer.

As mentioned in the title, the bridge itself is structurally perfect. I crossed this bridge several times during my stay in Skopje and managed to cross the river without getting wet. "A bridge is a structure built to span physical obstacles without closing the way underneath such as a body of water, valley, or road, for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle."

So honestly 5* for the structure.

It also is a great instagram spot, I didn't take any pics but I imagine I would have got around 30 likes
