Islamic architecture in Macedonia
With their five centuries long presence in the Macedonian territory, it is natural that the Ottomans have left their strong imprint in many aspects of life, particularly in the architecture. They did it through the construction of religious buildings, various public buildings such as inns (Kursumli An in Skopje), "amami" - public baths (Daut - Pasha Amam in Skopje), clock towers (The Saat-kula in Skopje), bridges (The Stone Bridge in Skopje), although some believe it dates as far back as the VI century A.D.)
