    Locally Owned Budget Hotel in Skopje

    by

    Well we had quite a nice room with a balcony and quite large enough for the suitcases. There was free wi fi and a computer downstairs..
    Not far away are some shops and a tiny post office but the PO takes a bit of finding.

    Breakfast was very nice and was included in our price.

    For any longer than a night I would prefer to be closer to the Square. For those more adventurous you could walk to the Square from Kapistec Hotel and I am told there is a bus...more adventurous still if you have only English.

    This little hotel is budget category.

    Unique Quality: You can walk through the hills of Mount Vodno...I am told. They will organize transport for you to the airport or surrounds.

    Directions: Look for the local MacDonalds and you are close. Under the slopes of Mount Vodno.
    The Austrian embassy is close by.

    Hotel Kapistec

    by

    Hotel Kapistec is a cheap but good place to stay during your stay in Skopje.
    For about € 20,- per person a night you have a room for two or three.
    The beds are not always comfortable, but the breakfast makes it more than good.

    Unique Quality: The breakfast is various and tasty. You can choose your own time to have breakfast.

    The staff speaks German and some English as well.

    Directions: It's located southwest of the citycentre. Take bus 57 out of the citycentre to the west and ask the driver which stop is near Hotel Kapistec.

    Nothing fancy.

    by

    Although describing itself as a hotel, this is really just a B&B. It is adequate and spotlessly clean, but nothing special. In fact, to be honest, it's a bit frayed round the edges.

    It's about a twenty minute stroll from the centre of the city, situated in a pleasant suburb under the Vodno mountain. There are numerous bars, cafes and restaurants nearby, as well as a supermarket and a MacDonalds, if that's your thing. If you don't fancy the walk, there is a regular bus service on the nearby str. Ivo Lola Ribar.

    The lady who runs the place is extremely friendly and has some English, although her French is considerably better.

    Breakfast is the typically European cereal, fruit juice, bread, cheese and cold meats affair, but you can eat as much as you like, which gives you a good start to the day.

    In a town where hotel prices are comparatively high, it's a good budget place to stay.

    Directions: Check the website - it explains it much better than I could.

Train Travel: Skopje to Pristina/Skopje to Tirana

by aboutdone

I need to make a trip from Skopje to either Pristina or Tirana to the airports there and was looking for the fastest/easiest route.
Does anyone know the train schedules from Skopje or have a website that I can look this information up on?
Thank you,

Re: Train Travel: Skopje to Pristina/Skopje to Tirana

by MacedonianUK

Best bet is bus.
for that one try www.sas.com.mk
That is the website of Skopje bus station. There is no train anymore to Prishtina at all.
You can take bus to Prishtina from Skopje at least 4 times a day
and once a day to Tirana via Tetovo, Gostivar, Debar, Ohrid, elbasan to Tirana.
Any other info on Skopje and travel links including train timetables, try www.skopjeonline.com.mk
or the multy link www.macedonia-timeless.com
Phone to Skopje train station is :
00389 2 3234255 or 00389 2 3118177
Hope this helps.
Happy travels.

Travel Tips for Skopje

Far from an architectural diamond...

by Yiannis2000

Skopje is the proud home to the new country's Parlament but it gives still the feeling of a provincial Yugoslavian city...
There are picturesque neighbourhoods and streets, but the centar is dominated by huge blocks of flats. There are spacious avenues but still traffic is heavy during work hours!

See the old train station, or...

by shrimp56

See the old train station, or what remains of it after the devastating 1963 earthquake. The clock remains stopped at the time the quake struck. The building behind is now the City Museum of Skopje and worth a visit!

Religion in Macedonia

by Olgeorg

The Constitution of the Republic of Macedonia is clear, and states the following:
"The freedom of religious confession is guaranteed. The right to express one's faith freely and publicly, individually of with others, is guaranteed."
In accordance with this basis, there are more than forty active religious communities in Macedonia which build relations of mutual respect and tolerance. Two-thirds of the population of Macedonia are Orthodox Christians, 30% are Moslems, 0.5% Roman Catholics and 2.8% are of other religious affiliations.
The Archbishopric of Ohrid was the first autocephalous Slav Church. It was established by St. Clement and St. Naum, outstanding students of the brothers Ss. Cyril and Methodius. In 893 A.D., St. Clement of Ohrid became the first Slav archbishop.
The Macedonian Orthodox Church has played an extremely important role in uniting and organizingMacedonian expatriates in Australia, the United States and Canada, and recently also in West European countries. The Australian Eparchy and the Canado-American Eparchy comprise 44 churches and 2 monasteries. The activity of the Macedonian Orthodox Church in foreign countries is of exceptional educational and cultural assistance and of irreplaceable importance for the unity of Macedonians, their better mutual understanding and the preservation of their national traditions and constant concern about their national identity.
Macedonia has about 1,200 churches and 425 mosques. There is a Roman Catholic church in Skopje, and the other religious communities have their own places of worship in the capital and in other towns in the Republic.
The Orthodox and the Islamic religious communities each have a secondary religious school in Skopje. There is an Orthodox Theological College also in Skopje.
The believers from all confessions solemnly celebrate their religious holidays and the most important of these are non-working days.

Shopping for food in Skopje

by shrimp56

While there are supermarket chains in Skopje [see next tip] most shopping is done either at openair markets or in specialty stores such as this meat store and fruit/vegetable store.
.
Outside the supermarket we use in Karpos III there are often individual vendors seeling fresh produce.
.
These two shops are in the downtown area.

KOMITI: Fan group of Vardar

by Dirim

Komiti was established in 1987 like many other Yugoslav football fan groups. The name stems from "commitees" fighting against Ottoman rule in the beginning of 20th cc.

The fans are located in Western side of the Gradski Stadion (City Stadium) in Skopje.
