I ended up having a great time in Skopje. Here are some of my travel tips for anyone looking into visiting North Macedonia.

Things to do:
Besides the obvious walk in the Old Town, here's some of my recommendations.
• The Museum of Macedonian Struggle – very well made museum with a huge collection of items and wax figures representing iconic moments from the country's history.
• Matka Canyon – a walk in Matka Canyon is a must when visiting Skopje. It's 20-30 minute drive from the city. There's a well made walking path on the Canyon, a few restaurants and cafes on the way. You can also get a kayak and enjoy the views form the water.
• The house of Mother Teresa.

Food and Drinks:
• Padobranec – super soft almond cookie, bought from Rigara in the Old bazaar (charshia).
• Old Town Brewery - you can buy local craft beer. It's also a bar at night.
• Mola Coffee Bar – fresh juice and smoothie place in the Old bazaar (charshia).
• Space Burgers – an interesting interpretation of space food – each burger has a different colors and planet name.
• Forza Restaurant - some of the most delicious pasta I've tried. Italian cuisine with amazing desserts and wine.
• Kantina Restaurant – delicious cuisine!
• Kino Karposh - a nice bar to meet friends.

Expect to see double deck busses as public transport in Skopje – they were specially made for the city (they're not from London).
