Most visitors of Скопје climb up to the Kale fortress. From there it is only a stone’s throw to the museum of contemporary art – if you managed to find your way on broken steps up the hill. I found the museum rather empty but probably I’ve been there at that wrong point in time. But that didn’t matter, from the museum building you’re having amazing views on the capital city of North Macedonia. And that was already worth the sweat necessary to get up.

The history of the museum dates back to the year 1963 when an earthquake destroyed major parts of the city and for sure also the art collections. As a result artists around the globe called for a new art museum at Скопје and the government of Poland organized the creation close to the Kale fortress; the architecture was planned to remember the ancient fortification. The collection contains important works from the 1950s to the 1970s.
