Fondest memory: Old Town


Skopje Old Town is the most attractive section of the city. It comprises about 1,000 shops, grills, restaurants, and pastry shops. The Old Town is also the location of the Church of the Holy Saviour with its unique iconostasis executed in masterful woodcarving (18-l9th centuries). The yard of this church houses the sarcophagus with the body of the ideologist of the Macedonian national liberation movement, Goce Delcev (1872-1903). Also to be found in the Old Town are the Kursumli An (l6th century) and the Suli An (l5th century) caravanserais, and the Daut Pasha Baths (l5th century) with its two large and eleven small domes, now housing the Art Gallery. Other buildings which may be found here are the Hjuncar Mosque (l5th century), the Clock Tower (l6th century), the Isak-Bey Mosque (l5th century) and the Mustapha Pasha Mosque (l5th century). The old Skopje fortress, called Kale (10-l2th centuries), is situated directly above the Old Town.
