Free Adventure At Coos Bay Library

K-DOCK 92.9

The “Armchair Film Adventure” series at Coos Bay Library
continues on Tuesday, September 10th at 2pm in the Myrtlewood
Meeting Room. This month’s adventure is a “7 Days” video tour of
Macedonia.

Macedonia is a young Balkan republic that is a combination of both
Orient and Occident. Skopje is the capital of Macedonia and is located in the Vardar River Valley. It has a dramatic history that spans many thousands of years and forms the junction of two trading routes in southeast Europe that unite both western and eastern civilization. The legacy of Ottoman times is omnipresent in Skopje. One of the city’s most well-preserved mosques is that of the Gazi-Isisa-Bey Djamia. In the seventeenth century it is believed that there were up to a hundred and twenty mosques in the city. Ottoman rule began in 1392 and lasted for more than five hundred years.
Macedonia is a wild land full of natural splendor and with a long and
dramatic history that is well worth a visit.
