Mother Teresa was born on 26-08-1910 in Skopje from Albanian parents, as Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu. She died in 1997 at the age of 87 in Calcutta, India. Mother Teresa won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 for her humanitarian work.

In Makedonija Street, a statue of Mother Teresa has been raised, see the pictures.

In the nearby Beys Tower or Feudal Tower, a painting with a poem, and a small museum can be found.

The former house of Mother Teresa where she was born used to be between what is now the Makedonija Square and the GTC shopping center. A memorial stone and some marks on the street show where the house used to be.
