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. 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.

    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.

    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 »

  • 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!
