SKOPJE, MACEDONIA - JUNE 20: A general view of Skopje, Macedonia, on June 20, 2014 as part of "Skopje 2014" project which aim to give more classical appeal to the destroyed city by the old earthquake that hit the Macedonian capital in 1963. The makeover has attracted a growing number of tourists in recent years and visitors curious to see the city’s new monuments and statues. (Photo by Erhan Elaldi/Anadolu Agency/Getty Images)

Skopje has plenty of charm. Its Ottoman- and Byzantine-era sights are focused around the city's delightful Čaršija, bordered by the 15th-century Kameni Most (Stone Bridge) and Tvrdina Kale Fortress – Skopje's guardian since the 5th century. Don't miss the excellent eating and drinking scene in Debar Maalo, a lovely tree-lined neighbourhood.
