“Great renewed square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

It was just simple square couple of years ago, but slowly but surely is becoming attraction that will bring a lot of tourists, there is the great fountain of Alexander the Great, interesting monuments that are showing the real face of Macedonia... The only thing they need to stop is building more things on the square, because it will become very crowded. Anyway, its great place to visit and snap some pictures.

“the square”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Too many statues, way too many and way too big.They could 've spent the money for something more useful like hospitals or fixing the old buildings that are everywhere in the city.

“A tribute to Alexander the Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

The square is dominated by a massive statue of Alexander the Great with its magnificent fountains set to music. So many bronze statues set on marble surround the square and each exit is of great interest. The Stone Bridge, Mother Theresa's birth place, The Porta Macedonia (Marble Arch) and has views of snow capped mountains and the 66m high millennium Cross set high on Vodno mountain.

“Skopje Megalomaniac”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Square is nice and i was lucky to see the old square that now is a brand new square with the "need to get identity" issues that can be seen everywhere... Big and ugly Alexander th Great statue and Macedonia labels everywhere... the old square was great and i believe all former yugoslavic people should ask for the old again... yet their policy is to copy Greek history so those of you that know history will be dissapointed from the "megalomania" of the fyrom goverment, putting fake statues everywhere like old Romans did.. Shame cause "Vardaska" (old FYROM name) used to be a good country with knowledge of their Slavic history..
