Skopje is the capital of the Republic of Macedonia. This area is full of shops and restaurants. Here you can also see the beautiful Church of the Ascension of Jesus (Sveti Spas) as well as most of the monuments from the Ottoman era. The old part of the city has a beautiful atmosphere and charm – the five centuries of the Ottoman influence in the region left Skopje in a special oriental style that is felt and seen in many places. Many of these interesting and important historical and cultural monuments from that period are still standing and are a true tourist attraction. Among them is the Sultan Murat Mosque, also known as the Mustafa Pasha Mosque, built by the sultan Murat II, as well as the Ottoman baths, and the Old Bazaar, which is a true Balkan experience with many small streets, shops with handmade items, restaurants and cafes . Going along the main street, Macedonia Street, you will come to the memorial house of Mother Teresa, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. Here is the newly renovated Macedonia Square, where the grandiose monument of Alexander III of Macedon is located.
