The palaces of Skopje were built during the first half of the 20th century, capturing the charms and spirit of the old Skopje between the two world wars.
Located in the very center of Skopje and in the Bohemian Quarter, in these objects can be noticed the influences of many European styles such as Expressionism, the Art Nouveau, Academicism, Vernacular and the Modern styles of architecture. Often these styles are complemented with elements of the Byzantine tradition, Classicist, Renaissance and Baroque features.
In the past the rich and famous of the capital used to live in them. Today, these buildings testify about the life in Skopje which culturally, socially and economically has intensively developed during the period 1918-1941. Most of these palaces represent companies, national restaurants, hotels or private family homes, and some of them host EU embassies.
Some of the palaces are protected by law and proclaimed as cultural heritage of the Republic of Macedonia.
