Skopje is the capital and largest city of North Macedonia. The city was struck by a disastrous earthquake in 1963 which killed more than 1,070 people and left 200,000 homeless, with 80 per cent of its buildings destroyed. Reconstruction has concentrated on reducing density and creating new green spaces and infrastructure for future expansion, but many historic monuments and structures were lost. In recent decades some urban initiatives have focused on the reconstruction of former Neoclassical landmarks, which had been lost as a result of the earthquake.
