Macedonia Square, Skopje

3.2
Historic Walking Area · Tourist Spot
Take a stroll around Macedonia Square, the largest plaza in the country and one of the capital city's primary meeting places and public areas. Though surrounded by communist-style buildings, the square has undergone intensive government renovation in order to transform it into a modern and inviting space. Walk around the square, taking in the nearby mountain scenery. Pass by the numerous monuments that dot the plaza, including those honoring Roman emperor Justinian, Tsar Samuel, and several groups of Macedonian revolutionary figures. Be sure to get up close to the towering statue of a sword-bearing warrior on horseback, controversially said to represent Alexander the Great. Take a look at our Skopje tour planner to schedule your visit to Macedonia Square and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
