"Roman ruins just off the highway" Stobi by shrimp56
Stobi Travel Guide: 42 reviews and 183 photos
You CAN see the Roman city of Stobi from the highway probably AFTER you have missed the poorly marked exit! It is about 20 minutes south of Veles.
Stobi is considered the most significant of the Roman sites in Macedonia. It certainly is the biggest!
The entrance off the highway is at the bottom of the map .
Please click on the picture to enlarge the map of the site.
The MAIN entrance is not the one you'll use if you are coming off the highway. The museum and guard station are on the other side near the railroad and the river on a local road. Don't worry about buying your tickets -- they will find you:)

- Pros:Absolutely stunning in its size and beauty
- Cons:No cafe or bathrooms and hot in the summer
- In a nutshell:Come prepared for the "cons" and enjoy yourself!
Wear good walking shoes. If it's hot bring drinking water or soda or you may end up on your side like these columns!!... more travel advice
There's more to Stobi than mosaics, amphitheatres and columns. Don't forget to look at the local flora and fauna :) more travel advice
