The sixth century bridge history, by itself, would make it sufficient for this bridge to represent one of the most important locations for visiting the city. Due to its historical importance, it should be properly maintained and authenticly restored and conserved. But this is not the case with this bridge. on top of it, at the last restoration, the restorers, due to carelessness, break down the guard towers on the bridge, which in many ways disrupted the authenticity of the bridge. The tragedy to be greater, to date, no one is interested in fixing the strap.
The very specific symbol of City of Skopje, situated in the heart of downtown, hysterical spot as a memory of long rain of Turkish Empire, the leftover of it. It needs constant improvements and cleanings, especially below the bridge surfaces. Highly recommended to visit while in Skopje visit, along with another modern structures, that make this city unique...................
Connection betwean old bazzar and main square. Nice to see, but river seems not really clean.
One of the main attractions in Skopje. Located next to Macedonia Square. The bridge is 500 years old
An icon of the city... can't miss it... literally central between the main square and the old bazaar.
