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.

  • 1000 m above the city. Simply great place
  • The cloudy day or rainy day may give you a big surprise after you climb up the hill with the cable car! The millennium cross was built above the sea level more than 1000! And you can see the scenery anov the cloud! So the cloud became sea after you climb all the way up to the cross!
  • A must in Skopje. Fantastic price to go up and down using the cabin. I've been there with snow, but must be also a fantastic spot in Summer.
  • Just so big and beautiful also it's very quiet
  • 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.
