“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

I found the old bazaar to be fascinating. You could really see, feel and smell the rich history of the place and the intermingling of cultures through times. We were there a night that Albania, Macedonia and Turkey respectively played football matches and it was just an amazing atmosphere that illustrated the rich diversity of the city/country.

“A natural excursion from Skopje square”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

Just walk over the bridge from the main square and you are there, loads of interesting shops for gifts and browsing, many place to eat and drink. A market place for everyday goods and foods is also there everyday.

“Rows upon rows of everything”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013

So.. we arrived from Prishtine, past the gold/silver/fur/junk/sequinned fantasy shops and headed for the food. Rows of fresh produce and a back pack full of herbs and spices not findable in Kosovo later, we staggered out. And then the old city...

“Old bazaar Skopje”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

Just returned from a few days in Skopje. The old bazaar is definitely a place worth visiting. There is a lot of building work on the river front but take a walk up to the bazaar and you get to see the authentic side of Skopje. Lovely old cobbled streets and tiny little shops. Well worth a walk through the stalls of the actual bazaar. The people are lovely and friendly and as others have said on here we felt totally safe.
