Photographer's Note

New reality of Macedonia's capital Skopje are these Chinese-made Yutong Citymaster double deckers - a total of 202 have been ordered. The first test-bus appeared on Skopje streets in early 2011 and was followed by additional 40 that arrived in mid-August 2011 so to enter in mass use on Macedonia's Independence Day - 8 September. About Skopje legacy with double deckers: hundreds London double deckers were bought by the Yugoslav government in the fifties and shipped to Skopje. But in 1963 an earthquake resulted in destroying about 80 per cent of the city, wiping out public transport including those fancy buses.
