Skopje is not only a city with centuries-long history and traditional values but also the capital of Macedonia as well. It covers an area of 225 km2 and its position makes it an important crossroads of south-eastern Europe.
The city’s origin can be traced back to the ancient city of Skupi, located 7 km northwest from today’s town. It was and it is settled on the roads that united Western and Eastern civilization, on the roads trodden by conquerors, believers, merchants, etc. Because of its geographical position at important crossroads, Skupi assumed a special role in the Roman Empire. Christianization spread to Skupi very early – it had an organized church since the time of Constantine I. Till the end of the 13th century, Skopje was a part of different kingdoms and empires. In 1392 Skopje became a part of the big Ottoman empire and as a crossroad of important Balkan routes connecting Europe and Asia, the city became increasingly important to the Turks as a base for their further conquests. Ottoman rule has left many signs and monuments in Skopje. Today Skopje is the biggest cultural, economic, and trade center in Macedonia.What Wikipedia says about Skopje
