Archaeological Site – Stobi
Stobi (Στο′βοι, Стоби) is a settlement from ancient times at the rivers Black (Erigon) and Vardar (Axios). The earliest records of Stobi are from the Roman historian Titus Livius (Livy), 59 BC – 17 AD, who mentions that in 197 BC. Philip V defeated the Dardanians near Stobi.

2. Heraclea Linkestis – Stobi – Pautalia (Kyustendil, Bulgaria) – Serdika (Sofia, Bulgaria).
According to historical data, the city of Stobi existed until the end of the 6th century.
The first excavations of the site began in the mid-19th century, and to this day it is continuously explored.
The archaeological site of Stobi is owned by the Republic of Macedonia and is a cultural monument of national interest of first category.
