Skopje is the capital of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, a city located in the heart of the Balkan Peninsula, at the crossroad of vital communications, a city with a 2,000-year-old tradition. Skopje is an ethnically diverse city, located in the Valley of the River Vardar. You can take a walk along the beautiful quay of the river or stroll along the narrow streets of the Old Bazaar, which is the biggest bazaar preserved in the Balkans today, to climb up the Upper Town (the "Kale"), in order to feel the spirit of the 1,500-year-old fortress and enjoy the panorama of Skopje, or visit St. Pantelejmon church and admire the fresco “Lamentation of Christ”, bearing the first signs of the Renaissance.
