Skopje - a modern metropolis located in a strategically important position in the central part of the Balkan Peninsula. The town is located in the narrow valley of the Vardar River, which is enclosed by the mountains of Skopska Crna Gora in the north and the Vodno in the south. Because of this geographic position, it is a characteristic elongated form of the city.

It is interesting to note that the history of this place goes far enough, assuming that the first settlements existed from prehistoric times. In ancient times in this area was the town of Scupi founded by Roman legionaries. In the Middle Ages, Skopje is part of the Eastern Roman Empire (later Byzantine). Instead of Scupia, who was devastated by the earthquake, king Justinian in the 6th century founded a new town called Justinian Prima. In 1346 the Serbian king Dušan declared Skopje to be the capital of his empire, which empire broke down after his death. In 1392, the Turks occupied Skopje and the town remained under their rule for more than 500 years. In the long period of the Turkish rule, the town of Skopje takes on the look of the oriental city.

Skopje is the largest and the capital city of the Republic of Macedonia, which is an administrative-political, economic, cultural and educational seat. The city is rich with cultural-historical monuments, hotels, restaurants and night clubs.
