Macedonia claims Alexander the Great as their own and this is their monument to him. It's huge. There's a lot of smaller sculptures around the round tower. It'd be nice to have something interpretive for that.

A must see, it is so interesting to see such an unique piece of art! Definitely recommend to see this! The Macedonians have embraced their history and have emphasised the importance of their history to their current sociological climate!

Is it worth seeing? Yes. Is it impressive? Yes. Is it nice? No. Well Done. No. The whole city is bizarre. One of the strangest places I've ever been. It's very tacky, but I'm kind of glad I went.

Way high up on a column, surrounded by lions with their yes and genitals painted red! is a nice statue of Alexander the Great, a Macedonian warrior. BUT the sculptor has positioned the statue in such a way, that all one can see from underneath is the enormous horses genitalia. ( i asked the guide, and the answer i got... More

The warrior on a horse is a large statue in the middle of the main square of Macedonia. The bottom of the statue is well decorated surrounded by some water

While I haven't seen many warrior on a horse statues that I recall, this was really one that will be remembered. With a total height of 25 meters it is hard to avoid seeing, and the eight lions standing 2,5 meters tall are also mpressive. They were working in the area when we visited, so the fountain was out of... More

This is not just a "Warrior on a Horse". This is Alexander the Great! A true leader in Macedonian history, his statue stands tall in the city square, surrounded by lighted fountains and statues of lions. From this location, you can see a beautiful view of Mount Vodno and the River Vardar. It is also surrounded by restaurants and souvenir... More

The whole City Center of Skopje was remodelled into a pseudo-hellenistic past by building a lot of statues and blending buildings with fake historistic fassades. It cost a lot and is not really worth the effort as already now the slapshot building manner shows in cracks and fissures.

A good statue if you like expensive folly statues of men on horses. Features a big man on a big horse, with water squirting all about.
