The old railway station, destroyed in the earthquake in 1963. Today it's a museum of the City of Skopje. The clock stopped at 5:17 am, when the first wave of the earthquake hit the city.

The Skopje Aqueduct is an archaeological site located in the village of Vizbegovo 2 km northwest from central Skopje, Macedonia. The Skopje Aqueduct is the only aqueduct in Macedonia, and one of three largest and well preserved in the former Yugoslavia along with Diocletianus Aqueduct near Split, Croatia and Bar Aqueduct in Montenegro.

The question of when the Skopje Aqueduct was built is unclear even today. There are three theories:

- during the reign of Rome (1st century), according to this theory Aqueduct has led the water to Legionary settlement Scupi

- during the reign of Byzantine Empire (reign of Emperor Justinian I), according to this theory, Aqueduct shipping water to new settlement Justiniana Prima

- during the reign of Ottoman Empire, according to this theory Aqueduct is built in 16th century for a large number of Turkish public hamams.

This aqueduct was in use until the eighteenth century. From this impressive structure of stone and brick, nowadays is remained only about 386 meters with 55 arches. Today is assumed that the aqueduct took water from the spring Lavovec (village Gluvo in mountain Skopska Crna Gora), 9 kilometers northwest from Skopje and brought water to city center.

Holocaust Memorial Center for the Jews of Macedonia, a memorial to the holocaust of the 7,148 Jews from Macedonia and the history of the Jews in the Balkans.



The Holocaust Memorial Center is a multimedia center, consisting of several functional parts.



The Memorial Center is located in the so-called Jewish Quarter of Skopje, which was the center of Jewish life in this city until the deportation of the Jews. The museum is located behind the Museum of the Macedonian Struggle, which faces the Vardar River.



The Holocaust Memorial Center for the Jews of Macedonia was officially opened on 10 March 2011, exactly 68 years after the Bulgarian Forces deported the Macedonian Jews to the Treblinka extermination camp.
