The old part of Skopje over the Stone Bridge has many mosques, which speaks of the rich and organized spiritual life of the Muslim community during the Ottoman Empire. Further visit of the Old Bazaar: Daut Pashin Hammam, Kapan An, Chifte Hammam, Suli An, Bezisten, Kursumli An, Mustafa Pasha mosque.
At the end of the tour of Old Bazaar we will stop at Church of Holy savior. The 19th century iconostasis of the church of the Holy Savior, carved in walnut wood, combines a profusion of plant and animal motifs with the figures of saints in local costumes. This realistic high-relief carving is work of the skilful craftsmen of Debar area, who included their own figures in one corner of the iconostasis. The iconostasis is 6 meters high and 10 meters long. On this space, the carving group managed to show numerous scenes from the bible, important geometrical ornaments and figures from the Macedonian flora and fauna. The iconostasis at this church is one of the finest samples of traditional woodcarving which can be found on the territory of the Republic of Macedonia along with the iconostasis of St. Jovan Bigorski Monastery.
Tour will end with sightseeing of Skopje fortress.
