Why locals love it

About 2 km from Skopje, between Skopje Fortress and archaeological site Skupi, over the river valley of the small river Serava is located this important cultural monument. The Skopje Aqueduct is made with great skills and precision, from stone and brick.

Why you should visit it

The Aqueduct has a lenght of 284 meters, 54 main arches erected on massive pillars and 42 small holes that serve to facilitate weight. According to some researches, the Aqueduct was built in VI century during the tenure of Justinian, while others believe it is made later in the XV century.

This was interesting, mainly because it looks nothing like the picture so you're in for a surprise. The architectural and building work is spectecular, however the area has been sadly neglected and full of rubbish - not to mention the faul smell. Still, I have to it was worth the visit, just because the atmosphere is quite unexpectedly different and there is this certain country feeling. You can get a ride for the tourist fare of 600 denars from the old town bazaar and if you're lucky, you'll come across a sheep herd just like we did
