Walk across The Stone Bridge to admire the 15th-century Ottoman structure and take in sweeping views of the capital city, the river, and the mountains around you. Spanning the Vardar River and connecting Skopje's downtown with its Old Town, the bridge serves both as an important piece of infrastructure and one of the city's most enduring symbols. Originally constructed during the middle of the 15th century, the bridge has survived earthquakes, catastrophic floods, and an attempt by Nazi occupiers to destroy it. Make your way to the bridge and amble along its 214 m (702 ft) length, noting its sturdy construction of countless solid stone blocks, considered one of the area's finest examples of Ottoman architecture.
