Daut Pasha Hamam (National Art Gallery)

Skopje’s extraordinary 15th-century Daut Pasha Hamam (bath house) holds the National Art Gallery, although the building is far more interesting than any of the art you’ll find inside. Daut Pasha was the Grand Vesir of East Rumelia in the second half of the 15th century who according to legend built the hamam for his harem. The 13-dome building was designed for separate male and female bathing. The two large domes at the front covered the two dressing rooms and originally contained fountains. The remaining smaller domes covered individual bathing rooms. The building now houses a modest collection of modern art as well as a few paintings from the 18th and 19th centuries. The hamam sits somewhat forlorn next to the decrepit bridge building south of the bazaar.
