Millennium Cross, Skopje

(3.3/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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 location is great in your access from the parking lot. Buy the ticket to go up by cable car to the top, where the Grand Cross view of all the city sights. But upstairs not does not much ... just a simple playground for children, a few benches and a store selling coffee and some snacks ... nor bathroom has. The view is nice, but how is a polluted city, on the day we went, we can't see much ... but ok. In the end, thanks!

  • The cross itself is impressive and the views are great. We drive up to the car park and then took the cable car to the top. I was surprised to see both walkers and mountain bikers coming up the side o...  more »
  • Very big and beautiful cross. Better go to cable car and catch a taxi to get to the base of the cable car. Walk in the top of the Hill.
