Mountain of Vodno, Skopje

Categories: Mountains, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web
Forested with fir and pine trees, Mountain of Vodno provides panoramic views of the city and offers many opportunities for walking and hiking. At the top of the mountain stands an iconic 66 m (216 ft) tall cross, erected in 2002 to celebrate two millennia of Christianity. At the summit, stop for herbal tea, soda, or beer in a chalet near the cross and view the pictures of accomplished Macedonian alpinists mounted on the walls of the cabin. You'll also find the barracks of the Macedonian army in the vicinity. The slopes of the mountain shelter a medieval fortress and a monastery built in the 12th century. Be sure to bring a jacket, as it can be windy at the top. Mountain of Vodno is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Skopje Edition.
