Summer in Macedonia - 1999
home old skopje ohrid

During the summer school we visited a number of sites in Macedonia. Below are the remains of the old Roman city, Scupi, from which Skopje got its name. Several languages, including Albanian, use a variant of the original Roman name. The archeological site is slightly outside the modern city.
