Fortress Kale can be seen from all over the city. There is not much of the fortress left but the walls have been preserved/restored. Some of the towers are still intact. Inside is a big open area, great for wandering around, it is free to...More

Nice old fortress. Best enjoyed from the outside, because the inside is under reconstruction. Nice panoramic views of city from top of fortress.

The Kale is a wonderful place to sit and relax once you've stood and looked out over Skopje and the surrounding mountains. Be aware it's a bit of a climb to get up there and inside, but it is well worth it!

Great views. Up hill walk. They started to build the area but then stopped. Too bad because it’s has a lot of potential. However it is free. And they have free cold water at the entrance worth the walk

There is nothing much here to tell you about the fortifications - so it is really just a good vantage point to see the city. Beware - on a hot day it gets very warm on the ramparts.

There's really nothing much to see of the fortress other than to walk the ramparts for the view out over the city. It's an interest walk up to the fortress through the Carsija neighborhood and there's no entrance fee so why not visit?

It's a fair hike up but worth it for the views across the city in all directions. There was not much going on otherwise but there were venues that appear to function in the peak season. I didn't go up later in the evening but...More

From fortress is beautiful view you can see Skopje from wall. Fortress is dirty and default but my opinion is you can go there for photo and view.
