The capital and largest city of Macedonia. Skopje is the political, cultural, economic and academic centre of the country. The city has a modern infrastructure and a wonderful Old Town. The old quarters of the city has many narrow alleys and streets, and the Old Bazaar, is the largest in the Balkans outside of Istanbul. Islamic architecture is predominant in the bazaar but there are several historic churches as well. Skopje has several fine museums and an annual Jazz festival that is one of the cities highlights. The city has an abundance of good restaurants offering traditional Macedonian wine and food. Skopje´s  nightlife is diverse and vibrant.
