The road leading to the Roman Aqueduct leads trough houses and industrial facilities, not having any landscape qualities.Bike Tour Skopje Roman Aqueduct 01

However it does show a different, almost hidden side of Skopje. First we get to pass trough the city park and enjoy some nature. Then, trough the inner streets of an industrial area we get close to the Aqueduct. We take a dirt road to get to the Aqueduct, going around the Macedonian Army barracks. When we get to the Aqueduct we go around it and also enjoy a view towards Skopska Crna Gora Mountain. Then we take a different road to go back. We pass along a Roma neighbourhood and get to the Bit Pazar marketplace. Passing trough a rush of people selling all kinds of stuff we get to the Old Bazaar. Then trough the Old Bazaar we get to the City Square.

The Roman Aqueduct is believed by one group of scholars, though with not full certainty, to be Byzantine, and dating from the sixth century. Other scholars believe that it was built by the Ottoman Empire. Either way, the Aqueduct has been repaired very often and has been in use until the early 20 century. The Aqueduct is 386 m long, though it is believed that is was a part of a 10 km water supply network running from the Skopska Crna Gora Mountain. Today it is a magnificent historic construction that stands in the open field, over the river Serava.
