North Macedonia - Classic North Macedonia

Stobi, located near the village of Gradsko in the Povardarie region of North Macedonia, is a vast collection of ruins. Kavadarci, located approximately 20 km south, is the closest urban centre.

Established initially as a Paeonian settlement, it was later integrated into Macedonia. In the 2nd century BC, it was taken over by the Romans and became the capital of the Macedonia Salutaris province, experiencing a substantial expansion. However, robberies, an earthquake, and Slavic invasions in the 6th century destroyed the city’s economy and infrastructure. Excavations at the site, which began in 1924 under the auspices of the Museum of Belgrade, are still ongoing.
