"This plaque marks the spot... [Or it used to!]" Top 5 Page for this destination Mother Teresa Tip by shrimp56

Mother Teresa, Skopje: 2 reviews and 2 photos


This plaque marks the spot where the house stood in which Mother Teresa was born in Skopje. [She was of Albanian ethnicity.] There is a double irony here... first many people missed this plaque even though it was right on the walking area going towards the main shopping center. The second irony is that it is no longer there because people kept breaking the chains! [As you can see in the picture.] They have installed a [controversial] statue of her a few blocks away though.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
