The Stone Bridge is one of the most iconic landmarks in the city.

It spans the Vardar River and is a popular spot for both locals and tourists alike. If you’re looking to get a great photo of this bridge, head to the Old Bazaar, where you’ll get the perfect view of the city.

The Old Bazaar is one of the oldest parts of Skopje.

It’s a colorful place to wander around and explore all the shops and stalls, and yes, take some amazing pictures. You’ll find everything from traditional Macedonian souvenirs to delicious food.

Be sure to take some time to explore this unique part of town and, of course, take a few Instagram selfies.

The main square is the central point of Skopje and is home to many of the city’s most popular attractions.

From here, you can get a great view of the Stone Bridge as well as all the museums on the other side of the river Vardar.

Besides being very picturesque with all its monuments and vibrancy, the Square is also a great place to meet locals and take in the sights and sounds of the city.

With The North Macedonia Flag

In the Square, you will also find a massive (and I mean massive) flag of North Macedonia.

This is a great place to take some photos, and it’s also a popular spot for locals to gather, especially in the evening when the main square is buzzing with city lights, people, and live music.

Given its immense size and the vibrant colors of the North Macedonian flag, this spot is definitely on my list as a very Instagrammable spot in Skopje.

For a dose of luxury to your Instagram feed, be sure to head to the Marriot Hotel & Casino.

It has a gorgeous bright-white facade making it stand out amongst all the other buildings in Skopje, and if you’re lucky, you might even get a glimpse (and a photo opportunity) with one of the many celebrities who choose to stay here whilst vacationing in Skopje.

If you’re feeling lucky, you can also visit the Casino for some fun and games and more Instagram reels.

Porta Macedonia

Adjacent to the main Square, you will also find the Porta Macedonia arch, which was built to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Macedonia’s independence.

It’s a beautiful structure depicting scenes from the history of Macedonia and, of course, makes for a great photo op.

The Vardar River Boats

Along the river Vardar, you will also see 3 boats which are not really floating but serve as a great spot for some breathtaking photos.

They offer amazing views of the cityscape, especially at night when all the lights are on. So be sure to take a walk along the river and hop on board one of these boats for some majestic shots.

The Matka Canyon

The Matka Canyon is a great spot for nature enthusiasts.

It’s located just outside of the city and is a popular spot for hiking and climbing. The canyon also has a few caves that you can explore and take photos in.

If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, this is the perfect place to go.

For the best view of Skopje, head to Mount Vodno where you will find the Millennium Cross. The cross was built to commemorate 2000 years of Christianity and stands at 62 meters tall.

From here, you will be able to take some stunning panoramic shots of the cityscape, and if you’re up for a bit of a hike, this is definitely worth the trek.

You should also consider going up there in the evening to catch the sunset and take some beautiful photos of the city lit up at night.
