    Visit Skopsko Kale -- the medieval fortress overlooking the city.
    The ruins of the fortress are interesting, but what is NICE is the park that has been developed on top since my first visit. The views over the city can now be enjoyed from benches, paths and lookout points.

    Kale means "Fortress" in Turkish language. Enjoy there just before the dawn and watch the sun set from there.

    Kale Fortress offers nice views at Skopje. The entrances of the fortress are at the eastern side of it, close to the Bazar and bridges to the south part of Skopje. Just look at the pictures.

    Ottoman Castle

    Since it is located at the center of Skopje, the view from top of the castle is beautiful. The sunset is fantastic, too.
