It's the largest Charshiya on the European soil but has lost its Christian and Jewish character due to non-existant Rule of Law in Macedonia.

Wonder around the cobble stone streets of the old bazaar and get lost in the nearby market. Great place to sit and sip your coffee or tea and watch people go about their daily business!

People on the street constantly trying to get you in their shops. I would have gone in more shops and probably bought something if I hadn't of felt hassled. Interesting area to walk around but expect the hard sell and all the usual lines.

I suppose the question is "Do they have a Christmas market?". As far as I know they have it on Macedonia square.
