North Macedonia's very own Arc de T is squashed in between adjacent buildings that now seem to dominate it. Before arriving in Skopje I expected this to be the prime monument but it is a little disappointing. Parked cars and barriers obscure any magnificence it...More

Skopje's Porta Macedonia has scenes of North Macedonian history on its facades, with roof-top access. There 's only 1 street through it (unlike Arc's convergence of avenues). It's worth a quick 5-minute glance.

This is another output of the recent frenzy of construction of monuments and civic buildings in Skopje. It's an arch in the style of a traditional Roman triumphal arch. Traffic passes underneath which is a bit of a shame.

On the picture’s it looks more interesting than in real.. it’s just a replica of the the one in Paris. You can’t miss it because it’s in the middle of the Centre, but that’s it.

If it works in Paris, it should also work in Skopje. Worth a quick walk by and a photo if you can time the light right. Near most lodging and the main square.

Interesting triumphal arch but in a sort of odd place. I was told at the free walking tour that there is an observation deck on top. I went at different times over three days and each time the gates were locked so I think maybe...More

Nothing really here to get one overly excited, after all its just a Gate to the city square. You wont miss it while out walking

Well, it sort of fits with the rest of the locale, so I suppose that it is OK from that point of view. It really doesn't warrant a separate visit.
