“Mussolini meets Las Vegas- Unbelievable Neo-Fascist Kitsch”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Absolutely bizarre in every way. Kitsch is the only possible adjective for the ludicrous Skopje 2014 nationist building programme with a whole city full covered with fibre glass columns, statues and marble fountains. Half billion Euros - possibly more spent on this in a poor country - possible only when the government controls all the main media. However it is both hideous (and somewhat creepy) and hugely entertaining, so I'm not whether to give it one star or five, I vote the former for the people of Macedonia, the latter for the visiting tourist who likes fun things.

“Skopje starts here”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

It seems everthing starts at this Square. There are two Shopping Centres in or close to the Square. Cafes and Restaurants on all corners, and prices are reasonable.

“Everything woth seeing at an arms lenght”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Pretty much centers the city (du'uh, it's the city square), and offers an overview of mostly anything woth visiting - centers around the huge, brand new statue of Alexander the Great, edges the stone bridge and river banks, offers excellent view of Kale fort and Millenium Cross as well as Gate of Macedonia. Restaurants and cafés as well as the huge shopping mall surround this place.

Reviewed 26 April 2014

Square and surroundings are really enjoyable and local people puts many efforts to make their city impressive. I think they succeeds.

“A touch of history”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

For those of us interested in Alexander the Great, this square was very fascinating - and stands as a great contrast to the rest of Skopje, which is rather dull if you ask me. There is a wind of history sweeping through this square. Liked it very much!
