Skopje - Post Report Question and Answers

What do you wish you had known about this particular city/country before moving there?

I wish I had known how bad the pollution was in the winter. - Aug 2019

Aside from THE POLLUTION (seriously, it's really, really bad), it is harder to travel out of the country than we expected. Unlike similar countries in the EU, there is not easy train access to other countries, and some of the flights are more expensive to get in than they might be elsewhere. - Jan 2019

I wish I had known how terrible the air pollution was. I never would have come here if I had known about it. - Sep 2016

The pollution and the state of the schools. We would not have come. - May 2016

There is a cheap airline called Wiz Air - I would have liked to know all the cities connecting Skopje for under 100 bucks round trip. - May 2014

Don't be scared off by the graffiti and litter. At first glance, it seems dirty and distasteful here. There are a lot of stray dogs, trash everywhere, and a shocking lack of street cleaners in public places. If that stuff bothers you, go inside somewhere. Indoor spaces are well maintained and welcoming. - Oct 2013
