If you're not acquainted with the Balkans and the characteristic atmosphere, the Skopje Old Bazaar is, perhaps, the best place to start! Souvenirs, music, food for all tastes, shapes and sizes and much, much more! Don't hesitate!

The Old Bazaar feels a little more real. Not like all the new big white buildings at the River. Here you have still small stores and restaurants and everything looks like it has some history. It's very nice to walk arround old Bazaar and spend some time with shopping, eating and drinking.

Definitely spend an hour strolling this beautiful bazaar. There many cobblestone streets to explore here. Shops are plenty but finding something of quality to buy other than cheap souvenirs, and tacky clothing/jewelry is not really possible here. There are excellent kebab houses sprinkled throughout the bazaar, and a small strip of beer pubs. Definitely don't miss this place when visiting... More

Best place in Skoplje to buy something. You can go for the cheap bags or for a chevapchich. If Ou go further in you get to a vegetable market.

The old bazaar was a really interesting and nice place to visit. You can find a lot of small shops and a lot of small coffee bars inside this old bazaar. In the evening there is also live ludicrous and a cosy atmosphere to enjoy your night.

This reminds me of marrakesh in the souks. Worth a visit, lots of bars and places to eat, nice to walk around and soak up the atmosphere. Top tip: dress down and not too 'touristy' or you will be inundated with beggars. I kept loose change in my pocket for tha children, not sure if this is the right thing... More
