Beautiful tag-card from Anja(Macedonia)

This card is showing Old Bazaar in Skopje,Macedonia.

Skopje is the largest city in Macedonia.The Old Bazaar in Skopje is one of the largest bazaars in the Balkans and the largest in Macedonia. Situated on the eastern bank of the Vardar River, the bazaar has been the city's centre for trade and commerce since at least the 12th century. It rapidly grew and reached its peak during Ottoman rule, evidenced by over 30 mosques, several caravanserais , and other Turkish buildings and monuments. Although Islamic architecture is predominant, there are several churches as well.

Today, the Old Bazaar falls within the borders of Čair Municipality.
