The cross is a very impressive and famous icon in Skopje and although you can see it from the centre it is worth heading up the mountain for a closer look in particular because of the great views at the top.

You can easily reach the place with cable car for small amount of money. The cab is running every 30 minutes and from uphill the sight of the city is impressive. In summer time great place to relief from the heat. Nice walks and facilities for picnic

The Millennium Cross can be found at the top of Mountain Vodno and its history is very nice and important to the Macedonian people. You can get there by the cable car or walking. There is a small cafe where you can get a hot coffee in winter days.

The Millennium Cross is a 66-metre (217 ft) tall cross situated on the top of the Vodno Mountain in Skopje, Republic of FYROM. It was constructed to serve as a memorial of 2,000 years of Christianity in FYROM and the world.

It is the top of the Vodno Mountain, rising above the center of the city. For me is basically same thing as all the mountain of Vodno because I usually go up there hiking. But since the cross was built, a cable car was also built and it helps people who never could walk up there to go and visit.... More
