Many Balkans countries are presenting Mother Tresa as their citizen. In Skopje you can find the house where she was born in the main square, meanwhile in the main pedestrian street you can find a very modern house dedicated to her, with a modern statue. Inside a small but nice Museum to know her better.

While the Albanians have named streets and an airport after Mother Theresa, in fact she was born in Skopje, and the locals make a lot of it. This museum is devoted to the life of Mother Theresa, and incorporates a church on the top floor.
When we arrived parts of it were locked up for no apparent reason. However, they were opened up for us when we asked.
While Mother Theresa is a religious icon, I'm sure there were other, non religious, parts of her life that could have been featured.

Also the Memorial House of Majka Teresa is typically Skopje: newly built with the intention to honour the old, humble and famous woman, but with such a bad taste that it seems unappropriate to honour her with this weird funny-looking modern-like house.

Very ugly building. Since she spent most of her life in India and her parents were from Kosovo I don't really understand the purpose of it either. Perhaps a nice statue could be more interesting.

It is not really big but it has a lot of things that Mother Teresa received. Free entrance, and very nice exhibition.....
