Skopje is the capital of the Republic of Macedonia, in the center of the Balkan Peninsula. Over time it has experienced Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman rule. The 15th-century Stone Bridge connects the Ottoman Old Bazaar (Čaršija) on the Vardar River‘s north bank with contemporary Macedonia Square to the south. The Skopje (Kale) Fortress overlooking the river has defended the city for centuries.
For all those who love garlic (like me), this is the real thing, you’ll enjoy the taste and plus it will defend your body against cold and flu. Makalo goes well with barbecue and with everything else. The only drawback is that you’ll eat a lot of bread.
Traditional Macedonian table without a plate of fermented milk? It is not Macedonian table!Especially in mountainous parts where farmers produce fermented milk with consummate taste due to abundant pastures which are rich with thyme, oregano and other aromatic plants.You can also easily prepare it yourself. My grandmother used to prepare fermented milk 2-3 times a week, I don’t remember she ever bought one. With fresh whole milk and a little effort, your home can enjoy this extremely healthy food.
Who came to Prilep and has not tried shirden – it’s like one has not been in Prilep.This recipe is traditional Macedonian heritage of Oriental cuisine and can’t leave anyone indifferent. For those who don’t know, shirden is the lining of the stomach of a lamb. To prepare this specialty, you’ll need to spend little more time, but believe me, it’s definitely worth it.
In the old part of Skopje, you can visit a fort originating from the 500’s. The fort has since been rebuilt over the years and even destroyed by an earthquake, in the year 1963. But there are still some old parts left of the fort.
On top of the fort, you also get a great view of the city.
Skopje has a somewhat weird amount of statues standing around in the city. It has actually gone so far that the people rebelled against the government because they rather invest money in building statues and majestic buildings than to help the people.
As a tourist, you can, however, take the opportunity to admire all the magnificent and gigantic statues around the city. One favorite is the giant statue in the middle of Macedonia Square which is said to depict Alexander the Great (some claim that it is just a regular soldier). And of course, this magnificent statue has an equally grand fountain beneath him.
Another famous statue in Skopje is the Olympia (Alexander the Great’s mother) depicting her, when she is breastfeeding Alexander. This particular one is also the only uncensored statue in Skopje.
The reason for having so many statues is said to be that they want to showcase all the famous people and the country’s rich history.
Skopje locals go here to enjoy the peace and get away from the big city pulse. Mount Vodno offers a nice natural experience with great views and excellent hiking trails. On top of the mountain, you can also see the famous landmark, the Millennium Cross.
