The capital of North Macedonia, surrounded by mountains on the Vardar River, is the largest city in the country. The city is an economic and tourist center. After a visit to Skopje, you may have mixed feelings. On the one hand, it has a rich historical heritage, and the locals try hard to highlight it by erecting monuments to their former governors. On the other hand, when you start to dig deeper into history, you start to understand that many of them are pedestals to kings, who ruled in Bulgaria. And a military commander Alexander the Great, whose monument stands on Central Square, has nothing to do with Skopje and Macedonia. The name of the country was also adopted. There is a region of Macedonia in Greece. For the first time in history, a state had to change its official name and add “Northern”. But despite such contortion of facts, Skopje remains a homeland of mother Theresa, a cosmopolitan capital, and a city where you can find the Millennium Cross, one of the world’s largest.
