Mother Teresa was born in Skopje - this museum & chapel was built on the site of the former Catholic church where she was baptized.


Old building

Old railway station built in 1938 to 1940. On July 17, 1963 and devastating earthquake destroyed 80% of Skopje. Two thirds of the station collapsed and the clock stopped working.
