About 80% of Skopje, including the neoclassical buildings in the centre of the city, was destroyed in the 1963 earthquake. Skopje was then rebuilt in modernist architecture, but then, after the year 2000 a number of buildings were constructed in ancient or classical style to give the city a more pleasing image. The centre of Skopje around Macedonia square and the Stone Bridge was remodeled with a number of builsings in ancient or neoclassical style and many statues with a connection to antiquity. As such the centre is very cute and photogenic.
