      That’s right, Rajesh. The Balkan Peninsula is filled with amazing hidden gems many people aren’t aware of.

    Visited Skopje last autumn, and really liked the city! The new facades and the huge amount of statues in central area truly are a bit confusing sight, as well as the old brutal concrete buildings. A lot to see and do in the city. And I totally agree that Matka Canyon is worth a visit, as well as the Vodno Hill with awesome paths for trail running. 🙂

      Hi Anne, I’m not sure how I feel about the look of the city anymore because the government literally changed the way the city I grew up looked like. Today it’s a reason for Skopje to be described as a city without identity and that really hurts because underneath all the baroque buildings and statues of controversial people from history this city has a soul. And absolutely, Matka and Vodno are amazing 🙂
