I visit the city the summer of 2018. It is a lovely city full with historical sites that I highly recommend to be visited. The square is large and full with statues of Alexander the Great and his family. It is shocking to see so...More

I would like to report about the false name of the square. I can not understand why it is called Makedonia square. Makedonia is an area name in Greece. They had no more names to think so they start stealing from others? A big faul...More

The place is like a movie set. Just plain kitsch. If you are numbed by the awfulness of it all, head to one of the many eateries in the surrounding areas and seek solace there.

One of the "must do - must see" things if you are traveling to Skopje. Do it both during the day and at night.

What I liked about Skopje is their effort to make the city visit-able. And this square encompasses all their effort. The buildings surrounding it are still being constructed, but their national pride hero, Alexander Macedon already has a huge statue in the middle of it....More

You couldn't avoid Macedonia Square if you tried. It's at the heart of the city with the statue of Alexander the Great towering over it. In November, the fountains are off but what a statue to see day or night. The square itself is always...More

Nice place with lots of people and activities. Many fine eateries and places for a drink at the place itself and the nearby river. Big but for us foreigners, some weird statues that show ancient heroes, but more important to the people and the nation....More

This is not a question that I am posting but a message of thanks for the two locals who came to my rescue on Saturday evening after I and my colleagues left the showing of Rigoletto at the Macedonian Opera and Ballet House. We were accosted by three young but incredibly aggressive Romas (in England this is the term we tend to use to describe travellers/gypsies) in Macedonia Square, who certainly took a distinct liking to me and were refusing to leave me alone.
