Entertainment & Nightlife in Macedonia


Skopje has a rich cultural life, which includes concerts, theatres, cinemas, opera and ballets. The Macedonian National Philharmonic performs at the National Theatre. Many festivals are held throughout the year in Skopje and other cities. One major highlight is the Skopje International Jazz Festival held in October, that hosts many famous American musicians. The last festival in 1999 featured jazz great Herbie Hancock. Other famous jazz musicians, such as BB King and Ray Charles, have also participated. Some of the other popular festivals include the Ohrid summer festival, the Struga poetry evenings, and various art festivals.

There are many café‚ bars and some discos in Skopje. While most cafes and bars will have foreign beers, the local ones are tasty and much cheaper, and most outlets will carry either Skopsko or Zlaten Dab. There's no shortage of places to drink them, most cafes expect you to take at least one beer with your meal. It's not hard to find good cafes but a good place to start is by the riverside near the old bridge, and at night this becomes a lively party area as well.

In addition to local cafe's, you'll also find the city's Irish bar where you can go if you feel the need for a more familiar drinks menu. London Pub – on the "Macedonian" side of the river opposite the old bridge, has a fine selection of imported lager.
