Package Itinerary

Meeting with your local guide at the reception of the hotel at 09:00 o clock. We’ll take a short picturesque drive to the nearby mountain Vodno to St Panteleimon Monastery – a church built in the 12th century, hidden in the high monastery walls. Perched on a plateau on Mt Vodno this monastery gives a magnificent view over the Macedonian Capital. The frescoes in St Panteleimon brought big changes in the development of Byzantine art and Macedonian in particular and gave basis to suppose that local painters, though reared in the tradition of decorative Byzantine painting, could make brave steps even in the 12th and the 13th centuries towards a new art which was later, in the 14th and the 15th centuries in Italy known as the Renaissance Art.

Tour continues back in Skopje to visit the “Old Town” where we will have our lunch at the famous Kapan An. Further visit of Stone Bridge, Memorial House of Mother Theresa, City square, and many monuments from the project Skopje 2014 as well as Macedonian Parliament. Tour will end with sightseeing of Skopje fortress.
