We enjoyed the many statues on the sidewalks.
Skopje's big claim to fame, besides being the capital of Macedonia, is that it is the birth place of Mother Teresa. There was a special church dedicated to her, and a few statues. We liked this one the best:
The symbol of the city of Skopje is its historic Stone Bridge, over the Vardar River. It really wasn't too impressive on the cold and dreary morning.
Looking back at Skopje from the bridge, you can see the Macedonian flag at half past due to the Lake Orhid tragedy, the empty Ploshtad Macedonia square, and in the distance, the huge cross on Mt. Vodno.
On the far side of the bridge is the old town, and its Turkish Bazaar. The streets were empty and the shops closed. This was strange to us, as it was a Sunday morning and we had assumed that the Muslim section would be busy.
