SKYwatch Friday

                     in response to Skywatch Friday

                         Skopje Aqueduct


The question of when the Skopje Aqueduct was built is unclear. It was in use until the eighteenth century. Only about 386 meters with 55 arches of this structure of stone and brick remain. It is assumed that the aqueduct took water from the spring Lavovec (village Gluvo in mountain Skopska Crna Gora), 9 kilometers northwest from Skopje and brought water to city center.

  5. Wow! In your picture the building (or how you can describe it) looks almost endless. Beautiful!

  6. What a great piece of engineering - I wonder how modern building will cope with that length of time.
