Departure from Skopje around 15 arrival in Ohrid around 18. Dinner and overnight at a three star hotel.
SKOPJE– a sunny capital with a taste of good wine, capital of Macedonia where you will be greeted by a recognizable southern spirit, hospitality, people who love life and celebrate it every day. As much as it can be said that they are similar to us (after all, it is a city only 400 km from Belgrade), they are so different, so traveling to Macedonia is a new experience. Maybe even more than you expect.
Macedonia is not big, and you can use the trip to Skopje to make a plan to visit not only this city, which has a lot to offer and which is otherwise well connected with all regional centers, but also nearby sights.
Most of the unavoidable sites are located within the so-called Old Bazaar, at the foot of the Kale Fortress.
The Old Bazaar is a craft, cultural and historical part of Skopje that testifies to the Ottoman influence and is certainly the most visited part of the city when it comes to tourists. It is located on the stretch from Dušan’s Bridge to Bit-pazar (markets – literally translated as flea market), and from the Kale Fortress to the Serava River. In this area there are two churches, a mosque, as well as the Museum of Macedonia and the Museum of Contemporary Art. There are also numerous restaurants, shops…
The stone bridge or Dušan’s bridge connects the old and the new part of Skopje. It is also a rare building that was not destroyed in the 1963 earthquake. Near the bridge, on the banks of the Vardar, there is a promenade with many cafes and restaurants.
The Museum of Macedonia contains ethnographic collections, exhibitions of old objects, money, costumes, jewelry – objects that testify to the past and history of Macedonia. Working hours are from 9 am to 5 pm, slightly shorter on weekends, while Monday is non-working.
Museum of Contemporary Art (Samoilova bb), contains works by Macedonian and foreign artists. He often organizes exhibitions, panels, film screenings and lectures.
Kale – a fortress from the 6th century, originally a Byzantine and then a Turkish fortress, today is a witness of time and an excellent lookout point from where the city and the river can be seen as in the palm of your hand. It is interesting that it was here that Tsar Dušan was crowned Emperor of Serbs and Greeks on Easter, April 16, 1346.
