It is worth making the effort to walk up to the fort - free entry - for the views over the city. However, the wooden steps to the first viewing platform with a telescope were non-existent and having walked all around the battlements the last tower - which would have given the best views - was locked up!

In my opinion one of the most important landmarks in Skopje. If you ever visit Skopje make sure you take a walk in the old bazaar and then here. Really peaceful place.

There is not a huge amount left in the fortress but the walls have been rebuilt. In one place you can actually see the Byzantine and the Ottoman walls. It is certainly worth going to the fortress to get a good view over the city.

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 go in. You can walk round the walls for great views of Skopje. Recommended.

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