You'll either love it or hate it. Skopje really was one of the craziest places i've visited. It made me laugh and it made me love it! Worth visiting in the day and at night to make the most of the view

I do not know the last you knew about the statues and fountains, but there are tons of new ones. They really are tastefully done, and really gorgeous. Very fun to walk around and see.
