Skopje Aqueduct

The Skopje Aqueduct is an archaeological site located 2 km north-west of Skopje, Republic of Macedonia. The Skopje Aqueduct is the only aqueduct in Macedonia, and one of three in the former Yugoslavia.

It is unclear when it was made. One theory suggests it was built by the Romans. But it may only have been constructed as recently as the 16th century, by the Turkish.[1]

Under the Ottoman Empire it provided water for public baths. Today, 55 stone arches of the Skopje Aqueduct remain standing.
