Cifte Hamam in Skopje

In the middle of the XV century, located near Suli An was built Chifte Amam, the second largest during the Turkish time in Skopje.

Hammam is the work of Isa Bey, who is mentioned also on inscription in Isa Bey Mosque in 1531.
 At the time of the great fire in Skopje at the end of the seventeenth century, the hammam has not suffered major damage. Its use lasted until 1912.
Hammam was divided in two parts with separate entrances for bathing of men and women separately, because it bears the name Cifte Bath (double bath).
Cifte Amam today is used as an art gallery and within is located part of the exhibition from the National Gallery of Macedonia.
