Kale, Skopje

#4 of 16 in Historic Sites in Skopje
Set atop the highest point in the historic Old Town, Kale has endured war, neglect, and natural disasters over the centuries and today stands as one of the city's major sights. Hike your way via a small hill up to the fortress, originally constructed during the 6th century, and explore the grounds. Wander around the interior, surrounded by stone walls, watch towers, and sturdy gates, many of which have been restored since the destruction of the 1963 Skopje earthquake. Be sure to bring your camera to take advantage of the sweeping view from the top over the city, the river, and surrounding mountain scenery. With our international travel planner, Skopje attractions like Kale can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • The view of this Fortress in the night is just stunning as I walk along the river. In the day, it is just as prominent as a landmark of Skopje.  more »
