The Stone Bridge, Skopje

Bridge · Tourist Spot
Walk across The Stone Bridge to admire the 15th-century Ottoman structure and take in sweeping views of the capital city, the river, and the mountains around you. Spanning the Vardar River and connecting Skopje's downtown with its Old Town, the bridge serves both as an important piece of infrastructure and one of the city's most enduring symbols. Originally constructed during the middle of the 15th century, the bridge has survived earthquakes, catastrophic floods, and an attempt by Nazi occupiers to destroy it. Make your way to the bridge and amble along its 214 m (702 ft) length, noting its sturdy construction of countless solid stone blocks, considered one of the area's finest examples of Ottoman architecture.

  • Were expecting more beautiful and interesting view. But unfortunately it’s quite boring, the river looks very moody, the architecture around interferes each other.. Lil bit disappointing  more »
  • The stone bridge leads across the river to the old part of Skopje.All along the river are cafes and even a hotel shaped like an old galleon moored on the bank.  more »
  • It is a nice and an iconic place located in the center of the city. It connects the new with the old town through a fantastic construction. It is nice to stand there and take a picture on it since the views are really nice. The view of the river it also pays off.
  • The stone bridge is one of Skopje's best places to visit as a tourist. Located at the city centre, you can watch the river flow and look at the night stars.
