Stone Bridge in Skopje Macedonia

In Skopje city center, on the river Vardar, exist the monumental stone bridge, which today connects the old and new part of the City.

According to Turkish sources, the bridge was built in the second half of the fifteenth century, during the rule of Sultan Mehmed II. However, there is another belief that the bridge is older, built in the first half of the fifteenth century during Sultan Murat II (1421-1455). The latter is supported by the fact that on the east side of the bridge there was a panel on which was inscribed the date of building of the bridge. In addition to this belief, is also the inscription in Isa Bey Mosque, where it is written that the stone bridge was built during the rule of Sultan Murat II.
Stone Bridge in Skopje Macedonia is one of the greatest monuments of this kind. Built from well-formed stone blocks, while his massive construction relies on power poles interconnected with semicircular arches.
