By 9am make your way to the designated meeting point near the Porta Macedonia, on Skopje's main square.
Listen as your guide tells you about the square's many important monuments and sculptures. These include the statue of Tzar Samuil, ruler of the First Bulgarian Empire, and statues of Goce Delchev and Dame Gruev, two leaders of the Macedonian liberation struggle in the beginning of 20th century.
Head out to the main pedestrian street in Skopje and visit the Memorial House of Mother Teresa, who was born in Skopje. Cross the Vardar river via the 15th-century Stone Bridge from where you can see more sculptures of figures from Macedonian history.

Your tour concludes at the Old Bazaar at 12pm. Ask your guide for recommendations for where to continuing exploring independently. Nearby attractions include the Ethnographic Museum, the Archeological Museum, and the Museum of the Macedonian Struggle.
