One day package - Skopje and its surroundings

We pick you up from the hotel and start early morning, about 30 minutes before sunrise at Kale Fortress. This location offers a beautiful view to the city. You can capture the morning sun casting shadows and orange light on the buildings.

Continue walking down to the Old Bazaar (Old Ottoman Carsia), the largest marketplace in the Balkans outside Istanbul. This location offers a great opportunity for street photography and to capture the Ottoman architecture. Watch as the city wakes up, little shops become busy and locals go on about their daily lives.

Crossing the old Stone Bridge and continuing in the new part of the city, we walk through Macedonia Square to the Old railway station that was destroyed in the 1963 devastating earthquake. 

From the station we walk through the bustling Green Bazaar, where you can watch and photograph local farmers and traders selling their goods and bargaining with their customers for a better price.

After the bazaar, the car will be waiting you outside and we will continue the tour up to the Millennium Cross on Mount Vodno (1066m).

We will reach the top by cable car and have a short walk to the Millenium Cross (please note: it is also possible to hike to the cross, if requested). After we spent quality time on the top and take some panoramic shots of the city and the surrounding mountains, we will descend by cable car again. After a short drive we will get to "Macedonian Village" , a complex built in the traditional spirit of the Macedonian architecture from the 19th and 20th centuries. Here you can enjoy a traditional Macedonian lunch and drink and we will discus your photos taken during the day.

After lunch we will have a 45 minutes drive out of the city towards Yasen National Park to an amazing viewpoint from where you can take magnificent landscape shots of Lake Kozjak and the numerous peaks surrounding it. This is a perfect sunset spot so we will watch the sun go down behind the mountains, painting everything beautiful orange and purple.

After sunset we have dinner an authentic restaurant in Skopje and enjoy a great Macedonian meal after your long day.
