About us

The American Corner Skopje was officially opened in January 2005.

The purpose of the American Corner Skopje is to provide free

information to the general public about the United States through books,

magazines, DVDs and complimentary access to the Internet. Besides

serving primarily as a resource center, the American Corner Skopje

hosts a wide variety of events, such as:


  • guest lectures with U.S. Embassy officials
  • presentations on cultural programs
  • film and video showings
  • poetry readings
  • conversational hours
  • Readers Club
  • Kids clubs and story hours
  • Workshops


All of our services are free of charge.

In the field of education, we provide student advising for studying in the U.S. and we organize events with Fullbright scholars. The American Corner Skopje serves as an alumni center where Macedonian citizens who have been to the United States on exchange programs can gather, share their experiences with locals, keep in touch with each other and with their American contacts.

American Corner Skopje is supported by the U.S. Department of State and administered through the Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy in Skopje. 

Come and visit American Corner Skopje to discover the wide range of professional and personal development opportunities.
