Review of Warrior on a Horse

Warrior on a Horse
Ranked #13 of 92 things to do in Skopje
Attraction details
Reviewed April 14, 2013

The statue "Warrior on a horse" is in the middle of the Macedonia Square. Although it's not directly said, it portrays Alexander the Great on the back of a horse. This is the main statue of the tens of other statues that have or are being built in and around the square as a part of the megalomaniac Skopje 2014-project. If these statues would be old you would be admireing them, now you just wonder if this has been worth the millions of euros.

I can't help imagining what the square looked like before this massive statue and fountain was built in the middle of the square. It's impressive, but maybe a bit much?

Although Alexander deserved the grand object on our square, unfortunately he got tasteless white marble monument which destroys the aesthetics and attracts the eyes.Materials look poor, and the fountain is the only consolation to those who have never walked away from Macedonia.
