Up to now 130 phantoms have lived in today's Skopje . There have not been found any written evidence of their existence until the middle of the 20th century. According to the investigation carried out from 2002 to 2005, in the disastrous earthquake in 1963, 95 phantoms were killed, 21 settled on the surrounding hills, while 7 stayed in Skopje until 2007, when all of them disappear.

The texts, drawings and the events are described according to the testimony of the people who have seen them or have had direct contact with them.

This is an homage to the lost phantoms of the city.


Ampo frequently amused soldiers at the entrance of the Hall of the Army, telling them dirty jokes.

He used to interrupt the retired people that gathered there in their long debates about politics by switching off their hearing aides. He did that not in revenge for them, but because he was allergic to the word coalition. According to the testimony of some woman, an employee in the Rubin Karmin store, he used to steal loafs of bread and baked goods from the Zhito Luks store and gave them to the beggars that slept on the benches nearby.
