The much larger than life statue has the pose from the famous mosaic from Pompeii of Alexander at the battle of Issus. A fountain at the base where locals and tourists gather for photos.

the statue itself is quite impressive and nice. but the plaza itself is not that special... it is a very touristy center but worth a visit.

Probably the biggest statue in Skopje but then they are all huge. It isn't easy to get a good picture simply because it is so high and so big it is hard to represent its scale. There is a fountain below the statue and it...More

This massive statue and fountain is of truly "monumental" proportions. In a bow to Greece the statue is called the Equestrian Warrior. But if you see it, you can draw your own conclusions. The fountains create a really beautiful setting.

It certainly is a great looking statue that is easy to get to and plenty of seating to enjoy the view.

This is the monument that has caused such controversy between Greece and Macedonia over who should claim Alexander the Great and the name Macedonia. The statue is huge and very impressive and definitely worth seeing.

Warrior on a horse is the name of the statue, but it is really Alexander the Great on his horse. The statue is a city landmark.

Read about "Skopje 2014" on the internet, and the conflicts with Greece over who really has the rights to say Alexander is their favorite son. He was a warrior, but it is really Alexander!!

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.
