This is definition of the facepalm meme. The only thing missing is an Elvis impersonator to perform marriages.

The sculpture is huge and part of the nationalistic approach to the problems with Greece by some Macedonian.
I think most people who are not Greek, support Macedonia in their fight to be able to call their country Macedonia, but then you see this man on a horse! To me it makes it more difficult to feel sorry for their problems with the name and difficulties to start the negotiations with the EU.

The highlight of " statue row". It has a wow factor at night, aided by lights, fountain and music. Not a biggie by day though

The whole downtown Skopje is pretty amazing. They have invested millions (in any currency) on making modern, but classical style, statues and buildings. This is the centerpiece. The warrior on a horse is huge, and a beautiful sculpture. It is on a pedestal that somehow is too modern and flashy to match it. The fountain is great and ever-changing, and the place is alive with music, restaurants and bars. Now, I know all the political overtones of this and the other statue, and the argument that it was a waste of money, in an earthquake zone, and some of it (like the pedestal) I don't like, but the 5/5 is not because I liked it, but because I think it was memorable. I want my vacations to be memorable, and Skopje exceeded expectations in this. The warrior horseman was one of the things I will not forget.
