Project: Skopje tour - City Tour of the Decade


What is cultural heritage about? Does people from some country can recognize in the present, what kind of category will be included on the heritage list in the future? What are the character and the impact of this heritage projects for the new generations? These are some of the questions I am facing of as an archaeologist and as a professional tourist guide every day. And actually, how it looks like for I day, if you imagine that you are a tourist in your own city, and you hiring a guide to tell you the story.

In his latest project entitled "City Tour 2000-2010", the artist Zoran Poposki hired me, because I work both, with cultural heritage and with tourism. This time I gave him a tour of the cultural landmarks created during the last decade in Skopje, the city we have lived in since our birth.

In the description of the project, he will write: ''The tour of the new icons of the urban cultural landscape is set out against a background of massive economic and social transformation of public space in this post-socialist city, resulting in an increased need for interpretation of this new topography of meaning''.

Photo documentation of the tour can be seen here.
