The love stories included in this tour are inspired by real events and persons throughout the centuries which stay carved in the local memory as tales. The stories of the queen consort Maria Palaiologina, the writers and feminist Rebecca West and Simone de Beauvoir, the tragic love story of Neta Koen, the palaces of the local upper class families such as Shkaperda or Arabic house built for their bellowed ones, or the story about the Fanka and Joshe Gavrilovi, the locals whose house on the main square by the river Vardar bordered Mother Teresa’s house, will make you believe in love again. Walking around with us, you will also learn about the soul of the city and its interesting residents who marked toponyms related with love.
