Old Skopje Bazaar

June 8th, 2010

The Old Skopje Bazaar is one of my favourite parts of Skopje for its great atmosphere, delicious eateries and pittoresque quarter.

The Old Skopje Bazaar is a Turkish market and you will be able to find and taste all kinds of delicacies from fresh baked bread and fruit baskets filled with banana's and strawberries to roasted nuts and local cheeses.

The narrow streets of Old Skopje add up to the pittoresque feel of this quarter and you will be able to get some great views from the Daut Pashah Hammam Art Gallery chapels, the tower of the Church of Saint Dimitri and the minaret of the Mustafa Pasha Mosque which is also located in the Old Bazaar of Skopje.

Some of these buildings are nice from the outside but simply stunning from the inside like the Church of Saint Dimitri which is open to the public and one of the most beautiful churches I have seen.

We also entered the Daut Pashah Hammam Art Gallery which was really interesting because here some of the most important parts of Old Skopje are preserved and looked after like the city's ancient baths.

The two city parts of Old Skopje and New Skopje are connected by Skopje's Stone Bridge which is beautiful at night when it lits up and offers a nice view of the Vardar River.

From the Stone Brigde you can see Mt Vodno and Millennium Cross in the distance. Of course New Skopje has a lot of nice sites too like the beautiful orthodox churches and the tasty restaurants!
