Skopje is full of reminders of Roman and Ottoman rule. The city offers great food, wine, and adventure. And if there is anything you cannot find here, you are probably just a two-hour ride or flight from it. Skopje is so close to any city in Europe!

The city is filled with amazing and interesting statues. They all embrace the history and culture that our country has and the sacrifices that many people have made so that our country can now be free and no longer be under slavery. There are a lot of tourist attractions but not many places to have fun, the city is only useful for sightseeing.
