The Warrior on a Horse is a monumental statue in the main plaza of Skopje. It's an enormous statue and has become somewhat of a symbol of the city. Although the government has never said it's meant to represent Alexander the Great - for political reasons with Greece - it's undobtedly Alexander the Great.

Dominando la plaza principal de Skopje, está la estatua llamada "Warrior on a horse", cuya traducción es "Guerrero a caballo".

Pero tiene una historia... ¿quién es en realidad este enigmático guerrero que merece ser puesto en el corazón de la capital de Macedonia? Si bien los macedonios no lo contestan abiertamente, lo saben, es Alejandro Magno. Esta estatua y otras cosas que llevan su nombre ha sido tomado por Grecia como una provocación (dado que el gran conquistador se supone que nació en la provincia de Macedonia en Grecia y hay un pedido por parte de la República Helénica de que este país cambie su nombre por otro).

Es por eso que desde Macedonia, aún sabiendo de quien se trata ese misterioso guerrero a caballo, lo muestra al mundo ocultando su identidad.
