Skopje Square (actually a rectangle) has many statues, like Alexander the Great on horse. Must visit.

The square is one of the main hubs of the city, so it's busy at pretty much every hour of the day. Surrounded by restaurants (many with outside seating), major hotels, and shops, there is a lot to see around the square. The focal point of the square is the massive fountain of Alexander the Great on his horse (technically known as "warrior on a horse"), which is nearly as tall as some of the nearby buildings. It's a great place to grab a bit to eat or just spend some time people watching.

Macedonia Square is the main square of Skopje and the biggest in Macedonia. It is located in the central part of the city, and it crosses the Vardar River. The Christmas festivals are always held there and it commonly serves as the site of cultural, political and other events. The square is currently under re-development and there are many new buildings around the square being constructed.

The city is spreading in all directions and is experiencing a number of new developments. The government had launched in 2010 the "Skopje 2014" project which aims to give a more monumental appearance to the capital and has erected a lot of statues, fountains, bridges and museums in the city.

In the center of the square, it is built a 22 meters high Monument of Alexander the Great riding his horse Bucephalus. The monument is in the middle of a circular fountain and there are eight soldiers guardians from the Macedonian Phalanx around Alexander. The whole ambience is enriched by eight lions, two and a half meters high, of which four are facing the fountain and the remaining four lions are mounted on stairs, standing in the guard position.

Macedonia Gate is a triumphal arch located on Pella Square in Skopje. The arch is 21 meters in height and is dedicated to 20 years of Macedonian independence. Its outer surface is covered in 193 m2 of reliefs carved in marble, depicting scenes from the history of Macedonia. It also contains interior rooms, one of which has a function of state-owned souvenir shop, as well as elevators and stairs providing public access to the roof.

La paza de Macedonia es monumental. Es bastante grande y tiene muchos monumentos. El más grande e importante de ellos es el del" Guerrero a caballo" dedicado a Alejandro Magno, luego destacan los monumentos de Justiniano I (emperador romano), del Zar Samoil (heroe nacional), y un par más. También está la entrada a un centro comercial, el comienzo de la calle peatonal de Macedonia y de la avenida 11 de Octubre.

En fin, de paso obligado en tu visita a Skopje desde ya que no te lonpodes perder. Pasá tabto de noche como de día.
