邻近 Skopje, Grad Skopje (Северна Македонија)
If you are looking for a piece of history, that’s been greatly preserved and conveniently located near the capital, an impressive brick and stone structure awaits. This loop route will guide you to 2 archeological sites which are perhaps the most impressive cultural heritage.
1) The Roman Aqueduct near Skopje:
surprisingly preserved, it blends perfectly with the wilderness around. A layer of thick grass is covering the top, applying what can only be described as a post-apocalyptic camera filter. And stretching for an impressive length of 386 meters, with a height of about 5 meters and 54 arches in near-perfect condition, the Roman aqueduct can be considered as one of the most important archeological sites in Macedonia and the region.
2) Skupi Archeological Site: shows the early origins of the city, a remaining of a Roman military colony from the 1st century C.E. called Scupi. During the late antique period, it gradually became one of the biggest cities in the Balkans. It was a city with all the comforts of roman life: cobbled streets, water supply, and drainage system, large granary, public bath with floor heating, temples, house of the city council, etc. Perhaps the most important, and definitively the biggest structure was the roman theater.
