Welcome to Skopje, the capital of the Republic of Macedonia, a city located in the heart of the Balkan Peninsula, at the crossroad of vital communications, a city with a 2000 years old tradition.
I would encourage you to take a walk along the beautiful quay of the Macedonian river “Vardar”, to stroll along the narrow streets of the Old Bazaar, which is the biggest bazaar preserved in the Balkans today, to climb up the Upper Town (the "Kale"), in order to feel the spirit of the 1500 years' old fortress and enjoy the panorama of Skopje, to visit St. Pantelejmon church and admire the  frescoLamentation of Christ”, bearing the first signs of the Renaissance. I would also invite you to feel the treasures of Skopje and to visit the Islamic monuments Sultan Murat’s-Hjunkar Mosque and, the Daut Pasha Hamam.
Skopje is internationally famous for being the birthplace of Mother Teresa. I am confident that,  she would be proud of the helpful and, hospitable attitude that Skopje citizens demonstrate towards visitors.  Despite the turbulent history of the Balkans, Skopje has blossomed into a thriving, stimulating city to explore, defining itself as superb tourist destination.
After the exciting day spent in Skopje, you can enjoy the tasty Macedonian cuisine and delicious Macedonian wines.
I am convinced that during the time of your stay in Skopje, you will feel the hospitality of its citizens whenever and wherever you are.
I do believe that the visit to our city will stay in your memory for a long time as an unforgettable experience. From now on, it is your city because the enjoyable moments will stay in your memory forever.
Have a pleasant stay!
