Millennium Cross, Skopje

4.0
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.

  • 66 meters high rises this cross of Mount Vodno. The cable car up is really fun & expanses and the views are priceless. A must when you are in Skopje.

  • IF you are around , its great to go up to the Cross to see around , but there is other nice point to see a view of the city.  more »
  • Whether or not you make your way up to the cross, you can't help but see it wherever you are in Skopje. Lit up at night it does lend a certain ambience to the city.  more »

  • You can go there with a cable car; it is like a 5-minute drive. A place from where you can see the whole city while your kids play at the playground and you drink warm beverages.
  • Very windy the day we were there, 10/29/17. Exciting gondola ride and I was surprised that it was operating in the wind. Beautiful site and you can get coffee/capacino there too. Fantastic view of the city and the surrounding area. Really beautiful!
  • 100% worth a visit in Skopje! Sweeping views, beautiful nature, nice park and little cafe up top, inexpensive access, certainly a sight to see here in SKPJ MKDN!
  • Great view, great place to hike. Beautiful view of Skopje. Recommend at sunset. Plan transportation ahead of time, taxis wont pick-up here. Bus is a good option.
  • Great panoramic view of Skopje valley.

Where to stay in Skopje

The capital of Macedonia and a city of numerous sights, Skopje offers a good selection of places to stay despite its relatively modest size. Even though most hotels cluster in the center of town, you can easily find accommodation in other neighborhoods too. The selection ranges from several high-end hotels and fully-furnished apartments to many economical but charming places to stay. The city wide selection of hostels, many of which are very close to the city center, appeal to younger travelers.
