Skopje

   City in northern Macedonia (q.v.). It was destroyed by earthquake in the early sixth century. Thereafter the city's history is obscure until Basil II (q.v.) seized it in the early 11th century. In 1282 the Serbs (q.v.) occupied it; Stefan Urosh IV Dushan (q.v.) was crowned there in 1346. The Ottomans (q.v.) captured it in 1391. The lovely church of St. Panteleemon at Nerezi (dated ca. 1164) is located near Skopje.
