Early in the morning, we woke up and had a quick breakfast at Urban Hostel & Apartments. We then went to Skopje‘s centre and split up. Ana and I went to the Memorial House of Mother Teresa, which was the Skopje walking tour starting point. In the meantime, Tim went to walk around in the city on his own.
Skopje Walking Tour
It was the first walking tour I had ever been on. It was interesting that we had a diverse group of Americans, Australians, Germans, plus us two Romanians, among others. However, don’t worry: the group will never be too large. That way, everybody can gather round at certain objectives and be able to hear the guide.
Speaking of the guide, we found him next to a roll-up banner, with the TripAdvisor logo on it. Miha was all smiles, very tanned and dressed all in white. He was friendly and chatty, but he made sure we all left on time, at 10.00, and, as the sun was rising on the sky, he took care to keep us in the shade for as long as possible.
The Skopje walking tour will take you on the capital’s colourful streets, to the main square, inside the Memorial House of Mother Teresa, the old railway station, across the Vadar and back, to the Mustafa Pasha Mosque, to what used to be an inn in the past, then to the Old Bazaar and Kale (Skopje’s fortress), and ends in front of Sveti Spas (Church of the Ascension of Jesus).
At the end of the article, you’ll find a quick guide with more information.
