At the periphery of Skopje, near the road Skopje – Kacanik, is located the old aquaduct, built up with stone and brick. Valuable monument from the 6th century BC. The aquaduct was supplying the city with clean and drinkable water from the mountains of Skopska Crna Gora.The archeological site Skupi is located west of the aquaduct, where the rivers Lepenec and Vardar meet. This is where Skopje under the name of Skupi was located 15 centuries ago.
This archaeological site is located in Vizbegovo, close to the City of Skopje. The date of construction was not known for a long time and there are two assumptions about that who built the Aquaduct in Skopje. One says that the aqueduct was built during the reign of Justinian I, between 527 and 554, and was built to transport water from the spring Lavovec, in the village of Gluvo and was connected to the ancient city Skupi. Another says that because of similar construction with buildings as Kurshumli An aqueduct was built in the 15th century, and served to transfer water baths and newly mosques in Skopje. The length of the aqueduct varies according to many historical sources. Some say that he had 60 laka, some say they had even 200 laka. According to sources who say that it was built in the 15th century aqueduct had 55 laka and a length of 386 meters.
