“Big Balkan Adventure!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

I went here with my class few years back, this bazaar has everything, from jewelry, clothing, useful house items, food, trinkets, you name it! Be sure to stay in groups, as it's easy to get lost, or get swarmed by few shop-keepers who'd like to make you interested in their products. Be careful with your money, too.

“Traditional atmosphere for shopping”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

The old bazaar has a traditional Turkish feel and atmosphere with a variety of shops. The small winding streets make for a pleasant stroll.

“Only place with real flavour in Skopje”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Surprisingly big and animated place in the city. Souvenir from ottoman times, but bustling with people. Good restaurants too, but almost nonexistent places at night.

“A nicely said version of flair market”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

It's not really exotic and big like the ones in Istanbul or Cairo. It got spices, groceries, old electronic goods, cheap goods, traditional stuffs, cheap eats. I saw some fake Rolex in Efes, Turkey and I was wondering if they sell some here. They had Adidas, CK, Guess, and other relatively cheap watches. They have some Turkish music CDs, also. They also got some T-shirt and other items with Albanian logo. You can buy some Albanian souvenir here, too.

“Wedding dresses”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Windows of wedding dresses in jewel colors and extravagant styles caught my eye. Yes, it is a place which wants your tourist dollar. If this bothers you, go very early before shops open and enjoy the small, cobbled streets and window displays. Plenty of places to stop and eat cheaply.
