Skopje City Guide
Macedonia's capital, Skopje, is the only major stream of the country on two banks of the Vardar River. On one side Albanians and Muslims are on the other side and the city where the Orthodox Christians lives is also a historical Ottoman settlement. After Macedonians in the city, Albanians are the second and Turks are the third ethnic group. The Macedonians call Skopje Skopje.
Places to visit
Skopje is not only a historical city, but also the country's largest settlement. These two conditions affect the architecture in two ways, traditional and modern, and the fact that it was connected to the former Soviet Union reflects the architectural concept of this system.
Skopje Old Bazaar is also called the Turkish Bazaar. For this reason, most of the trades here are Turkish and the Turkish language is mainly spoken in the bazaar. The bazaar reminds me quite a lot of similarities in Anatolia. Indicating that you are Turkish is a very important key for enjoyable conversation and shopping.
Among the historical buildings to be seen in the bazaar are Mustafa Pasha Mosque, Kurşunlu Han, Sulu Han and Davut Paşa Baths as examples of Ottoman architectural tradition. Here you can also find examples of old Turkish houses.
The stone bridge was built in the 15th century. The 13-eyed bridge, a unique architectural structure built during the reign of Sultan Murad I, was one of the few surviving structures in Skopje, with 80 percent of the bridge devastated completely in 1963
The ruins of Skopje, which had been in ruins a few years ago, have returned to the old days with the restoration. The magnificent park is also interesting. It is possible to enjoy an insatiable sight of Skopje from the inside.
Although the city's old railway station is partly demolished, it is now considered a National Museum. Here you can find historical and cultural clues about Skopje and Macedonia.
The newest church in town Clementin Cathedral is right next to the Vardar River. You can visit the Clock Tower in Skopje with him, you can see the monastery of Sveti Spas, you can visit Khanjar, Yahya Pasha, Murat Pasha camels and visit the Double Hammam.
If you want to see Macedonia's other values when you arrive in Skopje, you need to see some travel. If you set aside a few hours, you can reach the city of Tetova, where the Turkish population lives mostly. The Turks know this place as Tetlands. Ohrid (Ohri) city and the lake, which is one of Macedonian's favorite places and they want to boast about, is about 150 kilometers away. The deepest lake in Europe resembles a sea of Ohrid; There are around 365 churches around.
Culture and Entertainment
The city Macedonian embodies Albanian and Turkish culture in its best form. While the Christian section resembles a modern and sophisticated European city, Muslim living spaces are more modest and traditional. Christians and Muslims live together in a very respectful way. Nevertheless, it is a fact that Christians have stood on top of a huge cross that can be seen at every corner of the city.
Yahya Kemal Beyatlı from our famous poets is born in Skopje. The poet defines the city as "the grave of the saint" of "the conqueror of Fatih." It is believed that there are many marriages in the region and this is the surplus of species found in the region.
There are plenty of parks around the Vardar River dividing the city into two. Üskküpler performs hiking and sports in these areas. Particularly Macedonian people are living in the center of entertainment with department heads and night clubs.
