Skopje is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Macedonia.

It is the country’s political, cultural, economic, and academic center. Skopje is known as the City of Statues thanks to its impressive monuments situated all over the city.

In the center of town is the Macedonia Square, the biggest public space in Macedonia.
In its middle stands the Warrior on a Horse, a fountain and a statue of Alexander the Great.

The symbol of the city the Stone Bridge connects Macedonia Square to the Old Bazaar.

Around the square, which serves as a main entrance to the Old Bazaar, are:
The Museum of the Macedonian Struggle,
The National Theater,
And the Holocaust Memorial, a museum and multimedia center about the history of the Jews in the Balkans.

Nearby is another representative square with the Macedonian Opera and Ballet and a Philharmonic Hall.

And next to it is the Art Bridge, the most beautiful bridge in the city full of sculptures of noted artists.

Also worth a visit are:
The Porta Macedonia, a triumphal arch dedicated to 20 years of Macedonian independence.

The Mother Teresa House, a beautiful and tranquil modern chapel and a museum.

And the Church of St Clement of Ohrid, the largest cathedral of the Macedonian Orthodox Church.


One of the most important places to go in Skopje is the Old Bazaar. It is the largest marketplace in the Balkans famous for its cultural and historical values.

Beside the stores there are some interesting objects within the Old Bazaar, such as:
The National Museum, one of the oldest museums in the country.

The Double Hamam, a Turkish bath, today used as a gallery.

The Church of the Ascension of Jesus, a tiny orthodox temple with a pleasant courtyard.

And the Mustafa Pasha Mosque, one of the most beautiful Islamic buildings in Macedonia.

In the vicinity of the Old Bazaar there are other prominent mosques, like:
The Sultan Murat Mosque, the biggest mosque in Macedonia.

Macedonia Undiscovered Tresure HD

Visit Macedonia

The (former Yugoslav) Republic of Macedonia is a growing tourist destination, with much to offer. The capital Skopje, though resplendent with new modern eclectic architecture, has managed to preserve its historic Old Town with its large bazaar. Neighboring Matka Canyon makes for a wonderful day trip, but many people head straight to Ohrid, a charming town located on Lake Ohrid, a charming lake that forms part of the border with Albania. The lakeside town packs a lot of history into a small space too, including an ancient Greek theater.

I really wanted to go to this place because of Canyon Matka not knowing that Skopje can offer more than that!

If you are looking for specific place or thing to do in Skopje, you can skip and see timings below:
• My Hotel Room in Skopje Marriott Hotel 00:38
• Cable Car Ride in Vodno Mountain 01:59
• Millennium Cross 03:24
• Macedonian Village 05:24
• Lake Matka 07:41
• Boat Ride going to Vrelo Cave 08:25
• Vrelo Cave 09:11
• Dinner at Canyon Matka 10:13
• Roaming Around Macedonia Square 11:25
• Stone Bridge (Skopje) or Dušan Bridge 12:20
• Porta Macedonia 12:15

Things I forgot to include in my vlog:
• There's no entrance going inside or just to see Lake Matka, other than the boat ride, there's also rental of kayaks and some of the tourists go swimming. However, the water is super cold but very clear.

• 80 euros for the whole tour (doesn't matter if how many people are coming). Only INCLUSIONS are car (ofcourse LOL), driver/tour guide, gasoline, 1 bottle of water for each passenger, entrance fee of the driver/tour guide in each ride, and of course new found friends. EXCLUDED from the tour are the fee for your cable car ride, food and snacks, gratuities, souvenirs, boat ride/kayaking in Lake Matka.

• The duration of the tour from the Hotel - Millennium Cross - Macedonian Village -Lake Makta - Hotel is 7 full hours.

• There's no entrance fee going inside Macedonian Village.

• Room was paid by my company

• We haven't got the chance to visit Skopje Fortress, Old Bazaar and the Memorial House of Mother Theresa due to time constraint plus we were very tired. On a good note, there's a reason to come back, right?

Things to See and Do in Ohrid, Macedonia

Things to See and Do in Ohrid, Macedonia

TRAVEL HUSTLE REPEAT GEAR ►
MY FILM MAKING KIT ►

In this episode, David takes us with him as he checks out the top things to see and do in Ohrid, Macedonia – a city at the center of Lake Ohrid tourism.

David starts with what to see in the city of Ohrid. He begins in the Old Town, which is home to several beautiful buildings like the historic Robevci House. He then makes his way up the hill to see some of Ohrid’s historical monuments. First up is St. Jovan de Kaneo, a Byzantine-style church perched above the shore of Lake Ohrid. This is one of the most photographed places in Macedonia.

Another beautiful church to check out is St. Clement Church. David’s guide Zivka gives some background on St. Clement. Then it’s time to head to to Tsar Samuil’s Fortress for amazing views over Lake Ohrid. Samuil was Tsar of the First Bulgarian Empire and best known for defending Bulgaria against Byzantine domination. He eventually moved the capital of the Empire to Ohrid and built one of the greatest strongholds in the Balkans. Today the fortress is a great place for panoramic views of the Lake and the city of Ohrid. Admission is 30 Macedonian denar.

Up next: The Roman Theatre. It was built to accommodate 4,000 spectators and was used for gladiatorial battles. Recently it was uncovered and is free to enter. The acoustics here are wonderful!

Heading back down the hill David visits one of the most important monuments in Macedonia, the Church of St. Sophia. Again, Zivka chimes in with some more information about the Church. The surviving frescos dates back to the 11th, 12th, and 13th centuries.

David and the team walk back to the main square of Ohrid to shop for Ohrid’s famous pearls. He introduces us to a man whose family was the first to bring the tradition to Macedonia. The Talev family workshop has been here since 1924.

David reminds us that no visit to Ohrid is complete without first taking a boat ride on Lake Ohrid. From here, you’ll get magnificent views of the city and lakeshore. Hire a local captain from the Ohrid Marina for one-hour tour.

The next day, David embarks on his first day trip from Ohrid, bringing him south of the city to National Park Galicica. The park separates Lake Ohrid and Lake Prespa. It’s a popular with hikers and nature lovers who want to enjoy the clean, fresh air and stunning views of the lakes and towns below. You can also take your own car like David did.

A visit to the Monastery of St. Naum and the Black Drim springs is also a fantastic day trip from Ohrid. The monastery is located on a rocky outcrop at the southernmost part of Lake Ohrid near the Albanian border. Inside this cross-shaped church is the tomb of St. Naum. David sees if the local legend is true – you can hear St. Naum’s heartbeat if you put your ear to his tomb… it’s up to you to judge!

Once finished seeing St. Naum, David heads down to the riverbank to hire a rowboat to take him to see the crystal clear springs of the Drim River.

So that was David’s list of top things to see and do in Ohrid. Definitely one of the highlights of his Macedonia trip and a gorgeous destination to experience in the Balkans.

Europe's Best Lake? Where Albania & Macedonia Meet | Skopje To Ohrid Tour

Lake Ohrid is one of Europe's deepest and oldest lakes, a gem of Albania and North Macedonia we had to see. In this vlog we travel on a Skopje To Ohrid Tour with Skopje Daily Tours to...⬇ More Below ✈ Our 220 page guide on how to travel non-stop —

Lake Ohrid is a name we've heard a heck of a lot during our time in Albania and Macedonia / North Macedonia — so during our time in Skopje we couldn't miss it. We've spent the past 2 months exploring both countries and the most common tour we get told about is Lake Ohrid. It's one of Europes largest and deepest lakes and it's accessable from both Albania and Macedonia, so both countries recommend it highly.

We took a private tour from Skopje to Lake Ohrid with a company called Skopje Daily Tours, they have trips country wide to all sorts of attractions so we can definitely recommend them —  This was a 7-10 hour tour from Skopje because of the driving distance, dependant on how long you spend in Ohrid and at/around the lake itself.

The lake was surprising in a way that we should have expected - its far more developed than we had imagined. It's no wonder our new Albania and Macedonia friends were telling us to check it out, for a weekend it would be epic. As a quick taste to share the experience we loved it, a tour from Skopje to Ohrid is a lot easier than a bus or hiring a car as well.

So is it Europes best lake? Honestly, you tell us, we've not seen enough of them to know - can only imagine Lake Camo is high on that list purely for it's class and beauty? But we can say we've had at least 20 message from people telling us Lake Ohrid is the greatest of them all, but as with all travel destinations, that's subjective.

(North) Macedonia First Impressions | Skopje Free Walking Tour | Travel Vlog

Our first day exploring the country now officially known as North Macedonia - with Free Skopje Walking Tours we discover...⬇ More Below ✈ Our 220 page guide on how to travel non-stop —

Skopje is such an interesting city to explore! We didn't expect the most polarising place we've ever visited to be in Macedonia / North Macedonia - but we're glad to be here and taking a free walking tour to get more of an understanding of this country.

Taking a tour of Skopje was vital - there's so much information to consume, so much history, so many oddly placed statues and layouts that it was definitely the best way to visit and understand how Skopje has become the city it is today to travel. It all just feels a bit random, a bit prepared and incredibly polarising, for all the reasons we mention in the video... but theres definitely some charm that goes with all that and made for an interesting day.

In our last travel video we arrived in North Macedonia and had plenty of conflicting comments from people, not about Skopje itself, but about the name of North Macedonia vs Macedonia. We always research so were well aware of the situation before arriving but the reality is we can't please everyone. Macedonians don't want to be called North Macedonia, yet that's officially what's been agreed upon and there are a few countries (one in particular) that passionately will not accept the name as Macedonia only. Tricky situation that we can't win either way regardless of what we say - we highly recommend you give it a Google and learn more if you're interested.

If you're visiting Skopje definitely check out Vasko was an awesome guide and showed us all a great time on the walking tour.

Ohrid, Macedonia. The best touristic spot in Macedonia

Ohrid is Macedonia's most attractive destination, with an atmospheric old quarter cascading down a hill, full of beautiful churches and topped by the ruins of a medieval castle.

The town is notable for once having had 365 churches, one for each day of the year, and has been referred to as a Jerusalem of the Balkans. The city is rich in picturesque houses and monuments, and tourism is predominant. In 1980, Ohrid and Lake Ohrid were accepted as Cultural and Natural World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

Samuel's Fortress is one of the main touristic places. The fortress is situated in the old town center. It was the capital of the First Bulgarian Empire during the rule of Tsar Samuel at the turn of the 10th century. Today, this historical monument is a major tourist attraction and was renovated in 2003.

According to recent excavations by Macedonian archaeologists, it was contended that this fortress was built on the place of an earlier fortification, dated to the 4th century BCE, which was probably built by King Philip II of Macedon.

Antique Theater is the only visible monument from ancient times. It is also the only Hellenistic theater in Macedonia, the other three are from Roman times. Only the lower section of the theater is preserved.

Though Ohrid never was an important trade center, it also has a small bazaar consisting of just one street. It starts with the food market. After the market the bazaar begins with a small square. On the square there is a 1000 year old tree and a nice fountain. Above the square the clock tower of Ohrid stands.

As you walk down the bazaar on your left there are couple of stone stores, which is the only section of original stores in the bazaar. In the past, the bazaar was covered with grape vines, protecting shoppers from the sun and the rain. The bazaar ends with the main square that used to be the food market in the past.

Lake Ohrid is one of Europe's deepest and oldest lakes, preserving a unique aquatic ecosystem that is of worldwide importance, with more than 200 endemic species. It also has lots of swans that are clearly got used posing for tourists.

Generally speaking, the town of Ohrid is perhaps the most popular tourist destination in the country, which is largely due to the beaches and atmosphere.
