Skopje Day Tour from Sofia

Skopje Day Tour from Sofia is a great way to visit Macedonia in one day. Skopje is the capital of Republic of North Macedonia and its biggest city. In the last few years it emerged as an attractive tourist center with narrow streets and mixture of different cultures and people. You will visit its central part ornate with statues of kings, painters and writers.

The old part is very romantic with its sokaks and narrow streets, you will see the house of Mother Theresa and will learn more about her live and contribution to the Catholic world. This tour will give you a complete idea about the history of ancient and today’s Macedonia. You will also have the chance to taste some dishes from the local cuisine. Certainly you will find a lot of similarities with the Ottoman or the Arabic taste.

Appreciating the diversity of Balkan culture can be difficult, especially with limited time in the region. Explore Macedonian culture on a day tour to Skopje from Sofia, and tick off another Balkan capital in just one day. Travel the distance with ease via private vehicle, and discover landmarks including the Skopje Fortress, Memorial House of Mother Teresa, and Old Bazaar, with insights provided by your guide.
