Ancient Macedonian Mosaic in the Alexander the Great Fountain

At the pool base of the Alexander the Great fountain is a very large mosaic made after the typical ancient Macedonian scroll mosaics which are found not only in ancient Macedonia, but throughout the Macedonian Empire including Egypt, Syria, and Asia Minor. Below is a picture gallery of the mosaic. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

          

The Alexander the Great fountain was officially unveiled on 8 September 2011, on the 20-year anniversary of the Republic of Macedonia's independence, in the center of the capital Skopje. 

The fountain has been a instant tourist attraction since the moment it arrived to square "Macedonia" in downtown Skopje. Not only Macedonians, but also tourists from all of Macedonia's neighbors (including Greeks) have flocked to see the impressive monument.  And the number of tourists visiting Skopje continue to break records every month.  Organized large groups of tourists from European countries, USA, Canada, Australia, Japan, China, etc roam the downtown of the Macedonian capital and take pictures, not only Alexander the Great, but also of all other monumental classical buildings, bronze and marble sculptures that were erected as part of the government project "Skopje 2014".
