Full description

Discover the rich history of Skopje, Macedonia, on this tour through the Balkans. Drive with your guide from Tirana, Albania, to see how towns, cities, and countries were shaped by the communist era. Pass by old industrial complexes, bunkers, and political slogans, and learn about life in each area.

Notice the contrast of Yugoslavian and modern structures as you enter the city of Skopje. See the lasting damage of an earthquake in 1963, and the new structures that revitalize the city. Cross the Eye Bridge and Art Bridge on the Vardar River, home to dozens of statues of notable Macedonians.

Visit significant sites such as the birthplace of Mother Teresa, St Spas Church, and Mustafa Pasha Mosque, to appreciate the city’s diverse religious history. Feel thrown back in time as you enter the Old Bazaar and Fortress Kale, with stone walls full of centuries old tales.

Chat with your guide on the ride back to Tirana about the fascinating past of the region.
