150 Year of Macedonian Railways

Skopje, April 7 – Transport Community delegation took part in celebrations of the 150th anniversary of the railways of North Macedonia.  To mark this significant date in Europe’s transportation history, a ceremony was organised in Skopje as a reminder that, for more than a century, the railways of North Macedonia have connected nations and people and spurred economic growth and prosperity.

In 1873, the first railway link connected Skopje with the port of Thessaloniki. A century and a half later, Transport Community is assisting North Macedonia to remain on the same track – improving connectivity. The railways of North Macedonia have been a symbol of progress and innovation, and they continue to play a vital role today. With EU support and rail corridor VIII, North Macedonia will become a connector between Adriatic and Black seas.
