Old Bazaar - Review

The old bazaar was never used for living, it always was a shopping area and contact zone of the Christian and the Muslim population as they lived in separate parts of the town.Although some portions of the old bazaar have been replaced with parking lots and streets, it is still the biggest bazaar in the Balkans

Old Bazaar, Skopje Reviews

  • History, religion, food, culture, atmosphere... the list goes on. It was my first time here... although it does have that authentic feel, touristic amenities seems to be coming in fast. Nice to visit and wonder around. Every corner is differen. For shopping I think there are better places unless you are looking for that particular souvenir to take back home which will keep reminding you of Skopje.

  • The vivid memory of many centuries, this place gives you a good idea of the size, functions and architecture of beautiful old Balkan towns. Even if the genuine local Macedonian touch is barely visible now in the old market, under the strong Turkish influence, you have a chance to see the fine blend of ethnics, religions and peaceful vicinity now.... A lot of small souvenir shops (don't forget to bargain), coffee shops, sweets. I liked the unexpected, impressive changes in the new city center nearby, too.

  • Unique religious, cultural and artistic mix you won't find anywhere else! Do not think about this bazaar as just a market. Every corner here, tells its own story. The Old Bazaar is a cultural and artistic center in which a number of cultural and historic monuments are located. Most of the buildings that once were used to host the travelers or as hammams, were transformed into museums and galleries, which today are used with the main purpose to host art exhibitions, concerts and other cultural events. The area is also home to several mosques, churches and a clock tower. The authenticity of the Old Bazaar can be experienced through food but also a lively nightlife during weekends.

  • Fantastic and historic old bazaar featuring food, drink, jewellery, clothing, souvenirs, and basically everything under the sun. Churches, mosques, below the street hookah parlours......I could go on and on. This is a definite must see when in Skopje. I'm staying in the relatively inexpensive but beautiful Hotel De KOKA adjacent to the old market place. I recommend it.

  • Nice place, but reeks of tourism. Aside from old buildings not so much old style to it. I would recommend hitting up one of the modern shopping malls and food courts to get a feel how locals shop and live.
