Last week, Mike and I traveled to Skopje for the first time. We had originally planned to stay 4 nights in Warsaw but then decided to make a side trip to Skopje instead which actually turned out great. The weather was nice which was perfect as we were able to explore the city center by foot. As we had a late afternoon flight to Warsaw on our third day, we decided to visit the Matka Canyon which we highly recommend to all. We also had lunch in one of the restaurants there with breathtaking views. Below are some of my travel tips and as always, please feel free to comment on the comment section below for your own travel tips!
