If you had asked me 10 years ago about my favorite spot in Skopje I would probably tell you some fancy trending bar, but as the years went by I started to look for a place in the city that has all the necessary ingredients for a perfect story and that’s the Old Bazaаr.
Most people around the world call these parts of the city Old Town, which to me has a very nice ring to it. That being said, Skopje’s Old Town has always had a charm and appealed to visiting tourists as a beautiful place to take a walk, shoot some photos, buy some traditional craft-works and possibly enjoy an authentic meal. And then suddenly things picked up a bit. It all started from one or two bars that opened at the peak of Old Town and, as we Internet folks like to say, it went viral.
Numerous cafes, restaurants and bars started (re)opening and Old Town got its long lost vibe back. Whether you are a coffee addict, a night-life party animal, a food and drink connoisseur – Old Town is perfect for you.
Want to try authentic Macedonian kebaps, drink a nice cup of Turkish coffee or tea, try traditional Macedonian and Turkish cuisine, or see handmade clothing? No problem, because that is all within a 200 meter reach.
Yes, I love Old Town. I love it for the secret places, I love it for the food and drink, and for moments such as the ones in my photo.
