(North) Macedonia First Impressions | Skopje Free Walking Tour | Travel Vlog
Our first day exploring the country now officially known as North Macedonia – with Free Skopje Walking Tours we discover…⬇ More Below ✈ Our 220 page guide on how to travel non-stop —
Skopje is such an interesting city to explore! We didn’t expect the most polarising place we’ve ever visited to be in Macedonia / North Macedonia – but we’re glad to be here and taking a free walking tour to get more of an understanding of this country.
Taking a tour of Skopje was vital – there’s so much information to consume, so much history, so many oddly placed statues and layouts that it was definitely the best way to visit and understand how Skopje has become the city it is today to travel. It all just feels a bit random, a bit prepared and incredibly polarising, for all the reasons we mention in the video… but theres definitely some charm that goes with all that and made for an interesting day.
In our last travel video we arrived in North Macedonia and had plenty of conflicting comments from people, not about Skopje itself, but about the name of North Macedonia vs Macedonia. We always research so were well aware of the situation before arriving but the reality is we can’t please everyone. Macedonians don’t want to be called North Macedonia, yet that’s officially what’s been agreed upon and there are a few countries (one in particular) that passionately will not accept the name as Macedonia only. Tricky situation that we can’t win either way regardless of what we say – we highly recommend you give it a Google and learn more if you’re interested.
If you’re visiting Skopje definitely check out Vasko was an awesome guide and showed us all a great time on the walking tour.
