One of the "must do - must see" things if you are traveling to Skopje. Do it both during the day and at night.

What I liked about Skopje is their effort to make the city visit-able. And this square encompasses all their effort. The buildings surrounding it are still being constructed, but their national pride hero, Alexander Macedon already has a huge statue in the middle of it....More

You couldn't avoid Macedonia Square if you tried. It's at the heart of the city with the statue of Alexander the Great towering over it. In November, the fountains are off but what a statue to see day or night. The square itself is always...More

Nice place with lots of people and activities. Many fine eateries and places for a drink at the place itself and the nearby river. Big but for us foreigners, some weird statues that show ancient heroes, but more important to the people and the nation....More

It's a kitsch square with a statue that steals the Greek ancient history. The statue shows clearly the Greek Macedonian Alexander the Great, King of ancient Macedonia (part from ancient Greece). What's most disgusting, is that the label of the statue is just "equestrian warrior"...More

The local government borrowed the hero of Greece to boost tourism but they over built too many buildings

It's a nice place to just walk, snap a few photos, enjoy a coffee or some food at one of the many restaurants. Prices are very decent even in the nice places right in the center and the food is quite good.

Mediocre tbh, lots of megalomaniacal statues and monuments in an attempt to establish national identity. But points for trying to beautify the central city.
