Exploring the Old and the New part of Skopje
Skopje is the capital of Macedonia and like the whole country it is a crossroad of tradition, culture, tastes and flavors, it's a crossroad of the old and the new. Skopje is like two cities in one, so the point of this tour is to explore the old and the new part of the city, to see all the monuments around and tell you the stories and the legends behind them. This tour is recommended especially for the first time visitors and people who don't have lot of time to spend in the city.

Elena was a very good guide. She gave us a wonderful overview of Skopje and its history. She was open and amicable and answered all of our inquiries. She even gave us extra time to have a social drink with us, old folks!
