"The main landmark of Skopje" Top 5 Page for this destination Kameni Most - The Old Stone Bridge Tip by Manara

 
 

The stone bridge over the river Vardar was built in the 15th century, under the reign of Mehmet II, the Conqueror. Together with the bridge, the city acquired a caravanserai and baths. This shows how much importance the Ottoman rulers gave to travels, that in those times were mainly done for trades, and to the needs of travellers. The building of the old baths still exists and has been turned into a place for art exhibitions.
