Amazing statue of Alexander the Great. Focal point in Macedonia Square, surrounded by many hotels, restaurants, shops, museums. Close to Vardar river and Stone Bridge, spent a whole day around the square and shops. Designated pedestrian area, no worries about cars.

Right in the middle of their biggest square stand the statue of Alexander Macedon, their nation pride. Still disputed with Greece, they clearly are entitled to be proud of the greatest hero their country has provided!

One of the most important monuments in the Macedonia Square is the Warrior on Horse and presents a majestic view. With illumination in the evening, it becomes all the more attractive.

This statue, orginally called Alexander the Great, had to have it name changed to the more anonymus "Warrior on a horse" as a part of the process of solving the historical name dispute between Macedonia and Greece. The statue itself was a part of the...More

The statue is occupying 1/3 of the whole square! It is nice one but too big for such a small square.

How much did the Macedonian government spend on this? People in Skopje are disgusted with it.. that money could have created jobs, fixed infrastructure. Yes, Macedonia needs to think of itself as a nation after centuries of being ruled by other nations.. but this doesn't...More

I do not know the last you knew about the statues and fountains, but there are tons of new ones. They really are tastefully done, and really gorgeous. Very fun to walk around and see.
