Millennium Cross, Skopje

4.0
#3 of 25 in Sightseeing 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. Take a look at our Skopje family vacation planner to schedule your visit to Millennium Cross and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • The park, the cable car ride and the view from the top are worth the trip to the top. The cost of the cable car is 50 MKD each way.  more »
  • The view is beautiful but there isn't much else to see apart from the cross. The cable car is reasonably priced. If you have more than a day to spend in Skopje, I would certainly recommend a visit.  more »
  • View is very nice to the Macedonian lands. If you're lazy it's very easy to go up. Bus 25 from Rekord centre and after the cable car.  more »

  • The cable car ride is awesome, and the views are beautiful. It's lovely to walk on the trails in this area. The cross itself is a huge metal monstrosity. The park they've built for children is really nice too. Great place to come with kids, nice view for adults.
  • Cross on the top of the mountain, with beautiful view over Skopje. You can go up with nice little cable car at decent price
  • One of the places on MUST SEE IN SKOPJE list. Place where you can see all Skopje from above. Good picnic place. You can get to the top by hiking or with cableway. Price for cableway 100 MKD (return ticket)
  • THE MILLENNIUM CROSS IS A 66- METRE TALL CROSS SITUATED ON THE TOP OF THE VODNO MOUNTAIN IN SKOPJE, REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA AND IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST CROSSES IN THE WORLD.
  • Great views, cross isn't finished and the lift inside of it isn't working. A lot of trash everywhere, sadly. Still a great trip, though!

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.
