Millennium Cross, Skopje

(360+ reviews on the web)
Monument
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 »

  • 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!
  • Excelent place to spend outdoor time. Great view on the city of Skopje and the beautiful mountains arround.
  • Great views and all (note: no water here bring your own)
  • It costs 100 dinars to go up and down. A local bus brings you to the foot and it is the ideal spot top have a picnic work several his built overlooking stunning vistas across the mountain ranges and the city of Skopje. Plus the ride itself is stunning. And then there is the awesome size of the cross up close and personal. Take your own food though as only a small shop with machine coffee and crisps etc seems to be at the top. A highly recommended activity for those coming to Skopje.
  • Excellent place for recreation and breathing some clean air. Good view of the city, very panoramic.
