    Just stand on it
    Although possibly 'under-decorated' the old Stone Bridge, spanning the Vardar River, is still very elegant. It offers some wonderful photographic opportunities of itself, the river and the surrounding, impressive buildings along the river banks. The Bridge connects Macedonia Square to the Old Bazaar area, offering a lovely walk from one to the other. While the Bridge can be crowded, we were lucky enough to be there on a weekend, when locals weren't, so it wasn't too busy. I've also read reviews critical of the amount of graffiti on the Bridge. Yes, there is some, but again, perhaps we were lucky and there wasn't anywhere near the amount suggested. Perhaps it is cleaned reasonably regularly

    Perfect for photos
    This is an awesome stone bridge. It crosses the Vardar River from the newly built side to the Old bazaar. Pictures taken on this bridge will be very gorgeous, in any direction, because the backdrop is beautiful. The bridge is in a truly beautiful part of the city.

    Wonderful bridge
    This stone bridge is one of the greatest attractions of Skopje. It is several centuries old and connects the main square with the old bazaar. The centre of Skopje has changed completely in recent decades, only the old bridge has remained the same. There are many buffets nearby where you can enjoy a drink with a view of the old bridge.

    SIMPLE BUT SYMBOLIC BRIDGE
    This bridge is very symbolic in Skopje and is made up of very large breeze block type stone with numerous arches underneath that spread across the river. It lights up at night giving off a yellowish colour to the bridge but as the bridge of art or the eye bridge, there's nothing on it. It's a wonderful sight nevertheless. Just in front of it on top of the river flow is a small quaint statue of a diver along with the feet of another pertruding from the water as if they had just dived in

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Yes it's old, yes it's historic but ultimately it's a pretty unremarkable bridge. As it's the number three attraction in Skopje it kinda tells you about the general lack of significant sights.
They do like a statue here though.

The bridge connects Macedonia Square on the one side of the river to the old bazaar on the other side.
Throughout history, there have been attempts to destroy it by invading armies.
Fortunately, it has survived for us to enjoy.

The bridge connects the very new parts of the city with the old bazaar and is right in the heart of the city. Some prefer the more modern sister bridge next door (with fountains on the bridge itself) but this one has much more history).

Lively central point of interest in the very heart of Skopje, beautiful at all times of the day, a genuine lovely bridge between the neoclass8cal part and the Albanian part of town.

One of the most important and beautiful monuments in Skopje, so it is frankly appalling it is covered in grafitti. Of course you have to blame the vandals themselves, but the local authorities could make more of an effort to remove the graffiti.
