Skopje is the capital city of the Republic of Macedonia and it is located on the crossroad between Northern and Southern Europe and Western and Eastern Europe and also the Asian countries. There are 750.000 inhabitants unofficially, but\ officially according to the census of 2002 there are 506.926 inhabitants. There are around 200.000 tourists per year in Skopje, but according to the national statistical office there are 119.634 tourist arrivals, not counting the visitors that are staying in private accommodation. Most of the arrivals are business motivated. Skopje is the most important business center in Macedonia and it is the main congress tourism center. 37% of the total hotel accommodation capacities in MKD are located in Skopje. 45% of the total travel agencies are located in Skopje.
