3rd Meeting See&Share Project
Between July 25-29 See & Share trips arrived in Skopje in North Macedonia. Another typical Balkan country, with all the advantages and disadvantages that arise from this quality.
In the short time we had we visited a few emblematic places in the capital Skopje as Macedonia Square in the new city center where bridges, statues and headquarters of some institutions have been built with the mission to legitimize the new statehood of the country.
We also visited the memorial house of Mother Teresa, the Old Station, destroyed by the great earthquake of 1963, which was restored and now is the headquarters of the Skopje City Museum, the Holocaust Memorial, the Macedonian Independence Museum, the old bazaar, the archeological museum and Kale fortress.
Our best time, without any doubt, was our hike to the Matka Canyon, a few kilometers from Skopje. formed by the Treska River, with a lake and several caves, a great place for carstic diving. In the canyon there are also several monasteries built in the XIV and XIV centuries: The Monastery of St. Andrei built in 1389 by the son of King Vuca Min Mrniavcevici, the Monastery of Matka and the Monastery of St. Nicholas. Lovely place Matka Canyon, wishing to go back some day!
