Airbnb Skopje, Macedonia

If you ever get a chance to visit Macedonia, and don’t want to stay at a hotel, I definitely recommend booking a room at my friend’s place on Airbnb. Milena is a very welcoming, and warm person that will make your stay in Skopje very pleasant.

She has a cozy, local Airbnb place by the city’s park and stadium, which is also close to the center of the city.

About The Neighborhood


Milena’s home is located in Skopje, Macedonia. It’s 16 miles from Skopje Alexander the Great Airport.

Debar Maalo is considered the heart of Skopje. The city’s prime places for having a coffee, enjoying the “kafana” (restaurant) atmosphere, sports entertainment (located by the city’s stadium), and a lot of concerts (Super Skopje)  and parties are located here.


Getting around

There are several walking routes that take you to the City Center within 10 or 15 minutes, depending on your pace. Generally, all important things in Skopje are at a walking distance from here.

Getting a taxi is quite easy and getting to the City Center, City Mall Shopping Mall, Sistina Hospital etc. should cost approximately between 1.50 and 2 EUR.

Both Partizanska and Ilindenska have bus stops, but you will need a special electronic bus card for using public transportation, which can be purchased on the bus or special public transportation kiosks.

If you do happen to visit Skopje, and got few days to spear, then I recommend visiting Canyon Matka. It’s about a 45-minute drive from the center, but a beautiful canyon with a lake, caves, and nature to see. You can read more about Matka, and even get our free travel guide for Canyon Matka here.
