Skopje City Museum

  Kiril i Metodij bb      +389 23 11 36 09     07 Apr 2019
Drawing on a collection of almost 22,000 individual artefacts, what this fascinating museum housed inside the ruined carcass of the city’s exquisite 1940 train station lacks in financial support it more than makes up for in content. Among the exhibits are costumes, photographs and personal possessions from a number of Macedonian minorities including the Albanians, Jews, Romani, Serbs and Vlachs, and the 6,000-year-old, 15cm clay Adam from Govrlevo (Адам од Говрлево) statue, discovered in 2000 and put on display here six years later. The statue is ranked among the world’s top 10 Neolithic artefacts, as is perhaps the earliest representation of a human figure including ribs, spine, belly button and a regrettably chopped-off erection.
