City overview

Skopje is the capital of Macedonia and the country's largest city. This destination has experienced an extensive degree of transformation and as a result, more tourists have begun booking flights to Skopje.

The city has much to offer. It is naturally beautiful and the weather is especially pleasant during the spring and autumn seasons. There's a good number of events and festivals, featured throughout the year, and boat tours and hiking trails make this destination one of wonder and great adventure. The modern face of Skopje is striking and quite breathtaking to behold. Thankfully, the city's makeover has not destroyed the important and historical distinctive landmarks, such as the prominent Stone Bridge. This monument represents the old city and is one of its most ancient relics. It is still used, providing a walkway across the Vardar River to the Old Bazaar. Here you will see locals relaxing and socialising, enjoying food and beverages from quality restaurants and quaint bars and cafes. The trip to the Stone Bridge is a definite must and well worth it, with the Old Bazaar gems situated at the other end. A visit to Lake Matka is highly recommended. Even though the lake is a man-made feature, the beauty and tranquillity of this site is in no way diminished. The Matka gorge is another highlight as it contains one of the deepest underwater caves in Europe and is accessible by boat tours. Travellers taking a flight to Skopje in search of a hiking excursion should head to the Mountain of Vodno, which is ideal and provides stunning views of the city from the summit.
