See http://www.sas.com.mk/en/timetable.php

You as well can consider going via Nis, since Nis has slightly better connection to Sarajevo + it used to be a cheaper way to travel from Skopje to Sarajevo, than by direct bus, while timing is almost the same 15-16hours

is there also a connection via pristina by any chance? i've had a look on the website and it's useful, but it obviously doesnt have details of connections from pristina.

Re: buses between skopje and sarajevo

by kopvas

If you intend to travel via Pristina you can take Skopje-Pristina bus (numerous during the day), afterwards go from there to Montenegro (buses from Montenegro to Sarajevo - http://www.centrolines.ba/loc/template.wbsp?wbf_p_id=2) or it seems there is a direct bus to Sarajevo from Pristina (http://www.sarajevo-tourism.com/eng/autobuskisaobracaji.wbsp)
Anyway it would not be a problem to travel from Skopje to Sarajevo via Pristina with one or two changes...

Re: buses between skopje and sarajevo

by alek

you have connection skopje to sarajevo via nis every day at 13:10 and the price is 2130MKD and direct connection via kosovo every wednesday and sunday at 20:00 and the price is 3170MKD (1EUR=61MKD). the info on the official website (sas.com.mk) doesn't seem to be right. as for the time, i have no idea how long it takes:)

Hey Alek,

I wonder where you get that information? Is there an alternative website? It's good to know that the website of the Skopje bus station might be outdated...

Cheers,
Dennis

Re: buses between skopje and sarajevo

by alek

no actually thats the only website. the info you are getting there is usually correct (i'm talking about the schedule, not the prices) but it's far from complete. there are many connections that are not shown when you do a search, and less likely but possible, when you do a search, a connection that is running just few days per week will be shown as every day connection just like in this case.

Travel Tips for Skopje

Come and see . I cant write...

by Julijana

Come and see . I cant write nothing because I don’t have words to describe all human and nature beauties of this country and of Skopje. The Republic of Macedonia is a small country but is very rich in natural and human resources. It is located in the central part of the Balkan Peninsula, an exceptionally favorable geographical position. It lies between 400’50' and 420’20' north latitude and 20027’30' and 2300’5' east longitude. Many significant transport routes cross the country, connecting the countries of Central and Eastern Europe with the countries of the South and South-Eastern part of the continent and further to the countries of the Middle East and beyond.

Macedonians constitute the largest ethnic group in the country, while the most numerous ethnic minority groups are the Albanians, Turks and Serbs. The Republic of Macedonia is abundant in natural attractions, earning her the title of 'the pearl of the Balkans'. It has a great number of mountains, various types of dense forest, deep rivers and large lakes that make her potentially a great attraction for tourists.

The Republic of Macedonia is a real treasure of cultural riches. As a matter of fact, Macedonia was one of the foremost ancient civilizations, a fact which is not very well known around the world.

Macedonians settled here more than 4,500 years ago. Since that time, many civilizations and cultures have passed through the land, leaving traces of their presence.

The wealth of traditional folk art, architecture and customs reflect the rich material and spiritual culture of the Macedonian people that has been nurtured here for many centuries. The traditional handicrafts, that are still practiced here, take us back to past times.

The main political, administrative and cultural center is Skopje, with about 555,000 inhabitants. It was also a main center of the ancient Dardan Province because many important transport routes went through it, even at that time. Other large cities include Bitola, Prilep, Kumanovo, Tetovo and Ohrid.


The climate is mainly Mediterranean, continental in the centre of the country and Alpine in the mountains. The average air temperature is 11.30C, while the average summer temperature is 20.80C. Daut-Pashin amam

This project is one of the most prominent monuments of the Islamic profane architecture. The Turkish bath was built by the grand vizier of Rumelia, Daut Pasha in the XV century. In the first time it was used for the needs of its harem, and later it served as a public bath. Today, the Turkish bath is turned into an art gallery with a wide choice of Macedonian icons of the XIV to the XIX century, collective works of Macedonian artists- pictures, sculptures, graphics, and drawings and more recently in the rooms of the Turkish bath also concerts are held, promotions of books, theater performances with chamber orchestra etc.
The Aqueduct

On 2 kilometers north-west from Skopje, the aqueduct was built of stone and bricks with 55 arches supported on massive pillars. For the building of the aqueduct there were shared opinions in the science. According some scientists it was a Roman aqueduct whereas according to others it was a Bysantium building. The last scientific researches connect the building of the aqueduct with Isa bey, which means that it was built during the time of the Turkish rule and more precisely in XVI century

Monastery St. Panteleimon

The monastery is located on 8 km south-west from Skopje, in the village of Upper Nerezi. The monastery church devoted to St. Panteleimon was built in 1164. On the walls of this church a unique gallery of the master pieces of the Bysantium art is presented. Still what is a main subject of the scientific interest are the unrepeatable compositions 'Take Down From the Cross' and the 'Mourning of Christ'. In the monastery yard are the palaces surrounded with high walls, which are composed of one big, one smaller and a few auxiliary buildings.

Feudal tower

Makes part of the House of ARM, the unique preserved monument in the new part of the city. The time when it was built and the one who built it are not known. Most probably it is a feudal tower of some Turkish bey. Today it is in good conditions.
Mustafa – Pasha mosque

In the vicinity of Kursumli-an, in the old part of the city this monument of the Islamic culture attracts the attention with its size and beauty. The mosque was built by Mustafa Pasha in 1519, the vizier of the Sultan Selim I. Particularly attractive part of this building is the tall minaret, made of cut stone, whereas the expanded part is decorated with ornaments.



St. Spas church

It was built in the beginning of the XVII or XVIII century, upon foundations on an older church. Part of the fresco painting on the southern side was found from this older church which origins from XVI century. In contrast to the modest outside appearance of the church, after one enters inside, he immediately becomes astonished in front of the beauty of the iconostasis on the eastern side. The iconostasis is 6 meters high and 10 meters long. On this space, the carving group managed to show numerous scenes from the bible, important geometrical ornaments and figures from the flora and the fauna.

A must!!!

by Malecka

I HAD TO ADD THIS ONE AS WELL... Mustafa pasha Mosque! Jan, 4th 2002 I went into this mosque for the first time in my life, and I was amazed.
It is a gorgeous mosque, built in 1492... And it survived two huge Earthqueakes. It is definitely 'A MUST' when you're in Skopje. It is located just above the Church 'SVETI SPAS' - another example of the interesting mixture of... culture and architecture that can be found in this city!

Money

by mikey_e

The local currency in Macedonia is the Macedonian Denar (MKD), which is certainly not a hard currency, but is still not subject to the sort of crushing import/export restrictions and conversion restrictions that you would find in Caribbean or other developing countries. There are plenty of exchanges (menjalnice), especially in the Carsija, and some of the jewellery shops double as exchange booths. You can make larger purchases in euro, and USD and EUR are both easily convertible in the capital. Make sure to buy MKD, however, if you plan on purchasing at smaller restaurants, bakeries and above all in the Bit Pazar. Its not that the traders won't take your hard currency - its that they will probably give you a pretty bad exchange rate.

Above all - EXCHANGE MKD BEFORE YOUR LEAVE THE COUNTRY!!! Its not that you will be arrested or fined on departure if you don't, its just that you won't be able to do anything with your MKD once you leave. Even if you're heading to Serbia, Bulgaria or Albania, convert from MKD to EUR. It's more expensive than converting between Balkan currencies directly, but it ensures a quick and fair transaction.

Packing List

by Julijana

It depend how long you will stay…… Sport clothes might be very useful for all day time and recreations You can find everything here ( unless you use some special treatment medical) Any kind of photo camera will do.

Many Mosques

by mikey_e

The Imam at Hjuncar told me that Skopje (Skupi in Albanian) has 33 mosques, so don't be surprised if you are wondering around trying to find the famous ones and you stumble on something else. This mosque is at the northwestern edge of the Pit Bazaar and I mistook it for the Mustafa Pasha Dzamija. I have now forgotten its name (I didn't have a pen to write it down at the time) but I just remember that it had a beautiful interior and a very sad looking cemetary outback. The people were fairly relaxed and didn't mind me entering. Don't forget to remove your shoes before you go in!
