Today, we visited a local history museum in Skopje. It was really fascinating to see all of the many historical artifacts collected there! Many things date back to before the days of Jesus Christ. Also, there was an interesting gallery of art work by various students that show their opinions of Macedonia's relationship with the European Union (EU). The last picture shows a clock that stopped working in 1963 during the earthquake in Skopje. This building was the old railroad station and now serves as the museum. It was a good day of learning about Macedonian culture.
