On the picture’s it looks more interesting than in real.. it’s just a replica of the the one in Paris. You can’t miss it because it’s in the middle of the Centre, but that’s it.

If it works in Paris, it should also work in Skopje. Worth a quick walk by and a photo if you can time the light right. Near most lodging and the main square.

Well, it sort of fits with the rest of the locale, so I suppose that it is OK from that point of view. It really doesn't warrant a separate visit.

It's a beautiful piece that is nicely done. It's reminiscent of other gates like the one in Paris, the one in Rome and the one in Bucharest. It's worth a look.
