Macedonia (FYROM) Country #35

Macedonia is also know as FYROM which stands for
Former Yugoslavian Republic Of Macedonia

Welcome to Skopje the city of statues.

The capital city of Skopje has an odd feel to it. The city is completely under construction with the government putting up roman style architecture. 

Musem building in the background

If you talk to the locals they are not impressed as they would prefer the money too be spent in better ways. There has yet to be a city I have been in with the number of states as found here.

Rumour is this statue of Alexander the great cost 30 million

Just another statue

The old part of town has a high Turkish presence with eateries and a bazar

Lunch in the old part of town consisted of Kabobs with bread, onions a tub of sour cream and a grilled pepper.
