Čifte Hammam

Ahmet Ersöz, Nadya Popova and 25,072 more people have been here

Cifte hammam (македонски. Чифте-амам) is a hammam in the Old Bazaar of Skopje, Macedonia. It was built in the mid-15th century by Isa-Beg Isaković in order to provide a regular source of income for his endowment.


Name of the hammam is derived from the Turkish word "çift" meaning "two" or "couple" as the building consists of two main parts. Since 2001 the object is used for exhibitions as a part of the National institution “National gallery of Macedonia”.


Male and female dressing rooms are apart with a joint bath area. There were three separate rooms with high temperature, of which one was constructed with a pool for ritual bath of the Jews in Skopje. Today it is not operational and houses part of the exhibition of the National Gallery of Macedonia whose head office is in Multimedia center "Mala stanica". Daut Paşa Hammam is also part of the National Gallery of Macedonia.

Sleeping in the old houses in the Old Bazаar gives you morning when the sound of the nearby church and mosque is mixed in the air while you're walking the old stone-rode like in the old french movies.

Keşke etraf böyle dökük olmasa.Dar sokakların güzelliğini bozan eski evler değil.Sponsorlu masa şemsiyeleri,içecek kasaları.Umarım tez zamanda aslına uygun hale getirilir.Üsküp'ün en güzel yeri <3
