Discover Life in Skopje

Where else but in Skopje could you expect to see majestic Ottoman temples sitting alongside ornate neo-classical depictions of Alexander the Great and Philip of North Macedonia cast in bronze? The capital city of this small Balkan republic has undergone a striking 21st century makeover, transforming it into an ostentatious tourist attraction with a strong sense of history. A former state of Yugoslavia, North Macedonia owes its unique cultural blend to centuries of occupation by various world powers — from the Ancient Greeks to the Romans to the Ottoman Empire. Nowhere is this more apparent than when strolling through the streets of Skopje. An increasingly modern and cosmopolitan city, Skopje attracts much foreign investment through key industries such as banking, telecommunications, services, and food processing, with tourism and education also bringing many expats to the city. The sheer diversity on display here, combined with good-humored and friendly locals and a relatively high standard of living marks Skopje as a city with an international profile very much on the rise.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world.
