The tour tells the stories of the past written on Skopje's buildings. Enjoy a journey through medieval walls, Ottoman mosques and hammams, bourgeois palaces, socialistic megastructures, and eclectic contemporary facades. It involves some of the most popular touristic spots, like the old town, but also others that aren't promoted anywhere. The tour develops all the way up to contemporary times, even showcasing the current lifestyle in the city. The last part takes you out of the central urban ring, into a more residential area, where we will discuss the current architectural trends and how they are constantly affected by our society.
