sightseeing in Skopje

So, what do you do as a tourist in Skopje?
There is Macedonian Square like other squares in Europe. You can spend half a day at a cafe, checking out cute Macedonian, and do some shopping around the square.
And there is Old Bazaar, the area that you can see Turkish influence most. The photo is from the Old Bazaar. It is interesting area to explore. There are some old buildings, like a mosque, old Turkish bath and churches, and old streets, like narrow stone-paved roads, from the 11th to 15th century. I would say, "European meets Oriental" taste is all over. I guess that it is the Balkan, Macedonia. I kind of like this mixed taste. You can spend another half a day or more here.
