Skopje - Post Report Question and Answers

Knowing what you know now, would you still move to this city?

Yes. - Jun 2023

Currently I would not go back there because I have a one-year old daughter and wouldn't want to expose her to the pollution. But my husband and I do miss the great food, cheap household help, outdoor adventures, and frequent trips to Greece. - Aug 2019

It's hard to say. I really like it three out of four seasons, but winter is SO bad for my kid with sensitive lungs. Other than that issue, I would still do it for sure. Skopje is a nice place to leave. - Jan 2019

Absolutely! We are leaving this summer and will miss our life in Macedonia. - Mar 2009

No. Mainly this is ecause of the pet care issues andthe horrible way Macedonians treat the 20,000+ stray animals in Skopje, but also it's too hard for me to deal without the variety of food I'm used to and the convenience of shops that are open late. - Mar 2009

Yes. It is sometimes difficult to live in such a trash-filled and poor city. But there is alot of fun to be had and the people are very nice and welcoming. It's a very small city, so it's easy to get around. The school is great; housing is nice. We love it here! - Jan 2009
