The Stone Bridge, Skopje

4.2
Walk across The Stone Bridge to admire the 15th-century Ottoman structure and take in sweeping views of the capital city, the river, and the mountains around you. Spanning the Vardar River and connecting Skopje's downtown with its Old Town, the bridge serves both as an important piece of infrastructure and one of the city's most enduring symbols. Originally constructed during the middle of the 15th century, the bridge has survived earthquakes, catastrophic floods, and an attempt by Nazi occupiers to destroy it. Make your way to the bridge and amble along its 214 m (702 ft) length, noting its sturdy construction of countless solid stone blocks, considered one of the area's finest examples of Ottoman architecture. Put The Stone Bridge into our Skopje road trip planning site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Really not a great deal to say about this 15th-century pedestrian bridge that links the center of Skopje with the Old Bazar over the swift, shallow Vardar River..  more »
  • Definitely not a place to go and see. It's in the center of town. You don't want to, but you go through it repeatedly. It's an old stone bridge. A very symbolic structure for photography
