Alek, where on earth you found that prices??
I looked at some tourist/bus organisations like Rule Tours who manage the Skopje bus station and I found Skopje-Ljubljana for 73 Euro one way.
Also check www.touring.de they go Skopje Dusseldorf, but you get out in Ljubljana... With Touring SK to Duss is 200 Euros return and 120 Euros on way. Wll Ljubljana is half way.Worth checking out.

With the prices of train travel:

NEVER BUY Skopje-Ljubljana "at once". The trick is, that a significant part of your travel is in the so-called "SET" zone where train tickets have at least 50% discount. And there are special discounts, too - even better than SET.

So here are the steps:

#1: Buy Skopje-Belgrade-Skopje round-trip ticket in Skopje. The price is 32.60 Euro (it's a special discount).
#2: Buy Belgrade-Ljubljana-Belgrade round-trip ticket in Belgrade. The price is 25 Euro in each direction, round-trip is 50 Euro.

The total is thus only 82.60 Euro for the round-trip.

Compare it with the regular price of 106.40 Euro each way and you see, why you should break up the ticket in two pieces!

Travel Tips for Skopje

Dudi needs a doctor

by etfromnc

This 6-year-old little girl, Dudi, has a heart problem that cannot even be properly diagnosed in Macedonia. She has several problems, including staph, and has fainted several times because of an irregular heart beat. There was a doctor in Skopje who said she had to go to Germany to get a proper diagnosis, since the necessary machine does not exist in Macedonia. Please pray that we can find a way to get a proper diagnosis, and proper treatment here in Macedonia. Any ideas, or offers of help, would be most gratefully appreciated.

Makedonija square

by DPando

the most important place or the central area in the city..this is the place where mostly people come together and go to the pubs, restaurants or the mall around it
Its just side by side to Vardar river ..quite beautifull with a nice bridge over it that split the new and the old or turquish quarter full of minarets and mosques

Pastrmajlija

by Vanity666

If you want to try something local, try this. Great dish, originally consisting of lamb meat, but nowadays you can find chicken, pork and with many variations of preparation. Looks a bit like pizza, but with no tomato sauce (red color is from red peppers).

Most of them are named by the name they come from, like Stipska and Veleska.

Flea Market

by mikey_e

I was in Skopje in mid-September, when students get ready for the new year by buying books. In most Balkan states, books must be purchased by the students and are not provided by the state. This creates a thriving used textbook market every September. This one was across the river from the Holiday Inn, and was packed with books for students of all ages, as well as other books of general interest. I bought a phrasebook here for 1 euro, although it was mainly because bargaining was so much fun. You won't be able to find much here if you don't read Macedonian (not even Greek or Serbian speakers will have much of a selection), but I always find it fun to go through markets and listen to people bargain and haggle.
