Skopje is one of the few cities that have perfected the art of combining the old with the new, in art, culture and architecture.
The building of the Macedonian Parliament is near the Arc de Triumph, vis-a-vis of the Prometheus Temple. It was built in 1933, having a modest architecture. One would not even say it is a parliament building. In front of it one can see an equestrian statue.
After you pass near the Women Park your sight will be caught by the Arc de Triumph. It has 21 meters high and it is rather new, from 2011. It is white and has a few big dimensions statues that quadrates it. It was raised in the honor of the Battle for Independence of Macedonia, when it was split from Yugoslavia.
The Macedonia Square is very large and you can see many statues, monuments and other buildings of national importance here. In the middle of it one can see the statue of Alexandru Macedon, on a tall socle, with a sword in his hand and warrior lions all around. The statue has 26 meters high. During the afternoon the atmosphere is nice and cozy and with a lot of lights all around the square. The Macedonia Street is a pedestrian area, which starts from the old train station.
The Saint Theresa Memorial is another important touristic objective. She was born here in 1910 and has been an important figure of the Catholic Church. On the place of the church where she was baptized, it was built a memorial house in her memory.
The Kameni Most Stone Bridge is raised over the Vardar River and connects the Old City to the New City. It actually is the symbol of the city. The Old Bazaar is situated in the old area of the city, along the Vardar River. It is the second bazaar as far as the dimension concerns, from Europe; after the one from Istanbul.
