When you first arrive at this square, the main one in Skopje, you have to take a minute or so to take it all in. There are so many fountains, statues and things going on. But that said, it has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere like I found everywhere in the city. I loved the in-pavement fountains, which are intriguing to... More

Dominated by the giant statue and encircling colorful fountains dedicated to the historical father of Macedonia, Alexander the Great, this vast space is testament to the aspirations of the new Republic of Macedonia to be recognized as the true heirs of this iconic leader, despite the protestations of the neighboring Greeks... The feeling one has, when confronted by the myriad... More

The square is a newly built place next to historical are. The planning and architecture here is not in line with the rest of the city, giving an artificial feeling. The statues are too big compared to the size of the square. Therefore it is not possible to enjoy the view of statues from far, while trying to look at... More

This square is really nice. It's dominated by a huge Alexander the Great statue on horse, just after the most beautiful Skopje landmark, the Stone bridge. All other buildings on the square are also renovated and look tidy and neat. If they stopped there it would be a goal. But, they added tons of other monuments all around so it... More

Most locals hate the square (compared to what was there before), however, for tourists it's a great spot to people watch or stop for lunch.Lots of water, statues and cobblestone.

With all the renovations of the place it got worse and worse. The amount of fountains, and above all statues is to damn high. Also the fake baroque buildings are really bad.

The Macedonia Square is a busy pulsing place daytime, and even so after sunset. The it also lights up in a cool variety of colors making it worth taking a few minutes to enjoy. This can also be done from several nearby restaurants and bars. The massive statue of Alexander the Great is just one of numerous such in the... More
