They will change the name to Uskub and the place will convert into unique of its kind town, which will be called home from numerous Ottomans, Bulgarians and Albanians. In 1912, the city will be liberated from the Ottomans during the First Balkan war and eventually become a part of the Serbian country.

Such an interesting place to visit - so much history and tasteful rejuvenation following the earthquake in 1963. Lovely tributes to Mother Teresa. Our Guide Ivan was fluent in English, charming, attentive company, making us feel safe and able to ask lots of questions. Our lunch stop was carefully selected and the day’s agenda fluidly adapted to suit our interests. He drove safely (4 hours each way from Sofia) and made regular pit stops to suit our needs.
A great way to get a taste of North Macedonia, which is very different to Sofia.
Happy to Highly Recommend this Tour.
