Nice pics. I think there is a plan for renovation of the Transportation Center, but I dоn't know exactly when it will happen. Greetings from Skopje.

As far as the ruins around the Old Railway Station, there is planned to build a business and commercial center, if I'm not mistaken. A Turkish company got the tender and now is tearing down all temporary facilities around the station. I don't know the end date of the implementation of this project.

I have to agree. Out-dated monumentalism that doesn't even look like they used the classical principles of balance, proportion, scale and harmony in those constructions. Couldn't someone point out the golden mean rule to those architects? It looks like it takes inspiration more from tacky Vegas than classical Athens.

Pity really, instead of trying to stamp a false sense of cultural and architectural heritage they should have gone for something innovative and bold, which of course would have followed the principles and philosophy of classical thought, which they so much want to call their own.

On top of that, I must add that a poor country should be spending money on hospitals and education instead of 19th century jingoistic monumentalism. perhaps that's why there's been so many demonstrations lately by the locals against their government too, with physical confrontations even in parliament.

The project Skopje 2014 has been approved by barely 30% of the population in Macedonia. Unfortunately, the current government is right-wing nationalist party, and there is no prospect that things will change in the near future. Certain buildings of this project were necessary for the city of Skopje (the Old theater, the buildings of some state institutions...), but I personally would have been happier if they were built in a modern style instead in a neoclassical kitchy style.

Loved the vintage room (the one with the TVs), awesome retro design!
Which museum is that?

I think it's in the Museum of the city of Skopje, which is located in the old railway station

Great pictures, but it´s really depressing to see how a poor country like Macedonia wastes so much money for a ridiculous project like Skopje 2014 instead of building modern and proper flats for the people that are living in the slum-like houses you can see in your last pics.
