Skopje to Serbia by road or train, if possible to Sarajevo, Zagrab by Albania and Montenegro

by iitpp0

http://sas.com.mk/ is not fully function in English version, please tell me from Skopje to Serbia the Road or train stops ? because I don't want to bypass the problematic Kosovo area to hinder Serbian entry.

And is it possible from Skopje to Sarajevo, Zagrab by road or train by Albania and Montenegro but not passing Kosovo ?

Re: Skopje to Serbia by road or train, if possible to Sarajevo, Zagrab by Albania and Montenegro

Skopje-Belgrade is very trivial by both train or bus, takes about one night, tickets costs from 15 Euro.

All these trains go via Nis, by-passing Kosovo.

The main reasons: the line via Nis is electrified, no need to change the train direction, significant part of the line is double-tracked.

Currently - due political situation - there is no train traversing Kosovo. One has to change the trains.

I was countless times in all parts of Serbia - Kosovo included - and the situation for the tourist is not any worse than in any city of West Europe or America. In the fact, you have much higher chances to be mugged / robbed / whatever nasty thing in, say, Paris than in Pristina.

Going via Albania is also possible, the infrastructure (in particular trains) is a problem. I never was in Albania, so can't tell about my personal experience.

Belgrade-Zagreb costs 20 Euro by train, the trains are very frequent. The trains between Belgrade and Sarajevo aren't that frequent, only one a day - but it should be sufficient. There I would suggest to use very frequent busses. The bus station in Belgrade is next to the train station.

Re-Serbian entry: the old "Serbian stamp" problem is no more, the Serbian border guards would just invalidate the Kosovo stamp. If you have EU citizenship you can enter Serbia with your ID only, that makes your entry in Kosovo invisible.

Sometimes Kosovo-Albanians don't stamp passport at all, in particular if you ask them. Once I did not ask - and even despite that they did not stamp.

GyuriFT has covered Skopje-Belgrade-Zagreb. It is possibly to travel from Skopje to Sarajevo or Zagreb via Albania and Montenegro by road (not by train), but it involves a series of buses and is likely to take a lot longer than going via Serbia. You would probably first have to reach Tirana, then a bus to Shkodra, then either taxi to Podgorica or if you don't want to take taxis a minibus to Ulcinj and then a bus to Podgorica. Finally a bus to to Sarajevo. Other variations are possible but they are all long. Could be an interesting sightseeing trip, but if you are just interested in transport rather than visiting places, the Serbia route is both quicker and simpler.

I'm not sure if you want to get to anywhere in particular in Serbia or if you in fact want to reach Sarajevo. In the latter case you also have the option, rather than going as far north as Belgrade, of taking a train or bus to Nis and a bus from there to Sarajevo.

Travel Tips for Skopje

Project Skopje 2014

by Vanity666

Project Skopje 2014 is project of Macedonian government that should bring Skopje great changes and change a city perspective. The project plans numerous monuments, fountains, new bridges, and buildings that have disappeared during a large earthquake in 1963., such as the Old National Theatre.

July 26, 1963

by Manara

For people of my age or older it is impossible to mention Skopje without thinking immediately of the terrible earthquake that hit the city in 1963.
Macedonia is in the Mediterranean seismic belt, and the Skopje region is one with a long history of seismic activity. In 1555 the city suffered a catastrophic earthquake, but nothing in the history of Skopje ever resembled the earthquake of July 26, 1963. In a few seconds 134,843 people lost their homes, 1070 people lost their lives and over 3300 were seriously injured. Less than 20% of the city buildings remained non-damaged, or so slightly damaged as to be usable immediately after the earthquake.
In the ten years that followed Skopje was completely rebuilt as a new city, with new criteria not only with regard to the construction of buildings, but also with a redesigned urban development plan and new infrastructures.
The most evident memento of that tragic earthquake is the old railway station: part of it still stands, with its clock marking the time of the moment when the earthquake hit the city, and stopped that clock forever.

Skopje Collage: Kale & churches

by shrimp56

From downtown Skopje the Kale is always visible -- and we all know the famous churches such as Sv. Spas, with the wooden tower [in the carsija], but there are orthodox churches throughout the city. The one on the top right was in Karpos IV near the "Green Market".

Making Rakija

by kathy_and_ej

Rakija is one of the local spirits of Macedonia. You can buy it in stores, but if you are lucky, maybe one of your neighbors makes his own .... and you can sample it. If you see a homemade still, and steam pouring out of it ...most likely they are making Rakija. The first distallates which come off the still are not high enough alcohol content, and so are not for drinking. They are however used for window washing, engine de-greasing, etc.

Packing List

by batto

I recomend you to take backpack because that is the best type of bag for trip to Skopje. Your luggage will be secure, and always with you In spring and summer Skopje knows to be a very hot town. So in that part of the year do not forget T shirt. In every Skopje's shop you can buy everything that you need but... you should bring all hygiene stuff and important medicins.
