Tvrdina Kale, Skopjehttps://static.xx.fbcdn.net/images/emoji.php/v9/t2/1/16/1f60d.png");1926 vs.  the 26th of November 2006 vs. 17th of June 2018

The devastating earthquake of the 26th of July 1963 left the city in ruins, almost half of the buildings severely damaged, over a thousand deaths and a 120.000 homeless. The scenery of the city changed dramatically as these photos of the fortress show.

I visited Skopje The Capital Of Macedonia three times, in 2006, 2017 and last June. Last decade the city centre changed again, this time by the hand of humankind. Some people call it Disneyland now. I think it is impressive, not sure if I love it, the overwhelming changes of the 2014 project, but I do like to wander around the center of Skopje, have a chat and take lots of photos
