Millennium Cross, Skopje

#7 of 85 in Things to do in Skopje
Monument · Tourist Spot
Set imposingly atop the capital city's Mount Vodno, Millennium Cross pays tribute to Macedonia's long history of Christianity. Standing 66 m (217 ft) high, the metal cross ranks among the largest on the planet. Make your way up the mountain via a bus from Skopje's main station or your own two feet, but be aware that the hike is a very long and strenuous one. Once you've reached the parking lot, hop aboard the cable car for the last stretch up to the cross itself, taking in the sweeping views of Skopje and the mountains as you go.

  • It is a worthy place outside of the city. You can go there to relax and enjoy the fantastic views of the city and the mountains surrounding the area. Buses are free at the weekend to go there and the cable car is 100 dinars return tickets. It is nice to bring some booze and enjoy the day. At the weekends is very crowded though.
  • Ride to the top was exciting and the views were amazing, you can see the rain coming on my pictures. Beautiful view of Skopje from this hill and nice spot for a chilling in nature.
