Skopje is the capital and largest city of North Macedonia. This vibrant city is one of the oldest in the Balkans, having been settled for six millennia, but its glittering appearance is much newer. Much of Skopje was master-planned after a devastating 1963 earthquake, with green spaces and wide avenues placed at high priorities. The classical feel to the areas along the banks of the Vardar River and Macedonia Square are a result of a beautification campaign completed in 2014.
