Red bicycle in old Üsküp

Red bicycle in old Üsküp, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

There is a par of Skopje, the other (north) side of the river which houses the old souk area, with lots of cute old shops, mingled with mosques, hammams, fruit markets and a very large caravanserai. Overseeing this is the massive castle on the hill. This area represents Skopje's Ottoman past and seems to be the area mostly inhabited by ethnic Albanians. In all honesty, it lacked a bit of charm, but presented us with some nice photo opportunities.
