If you are in Skopje, go up, and you will have beautiful city on your hand! There is a cable car, nice ride with a beautiful view!

To get to the top you must walk or take the gondola ride. The road is not open to cars or taxis. Can be cloudy or foggy at times. There is little else to see there.

The bus stops at around the half hour at the cable car station but the cable car stops for 30 minutes until the hour! Ascending around 500m a brisk 90 minute walk will get you to the top but the cafe was closed and the cross was undergoung refurbishment, still the ride down on the cable car was then free

Do not expect to see something special if you really want to go! It is just a metal cross and nothing special around the place. The highest point of the cisy and you may watch Skopje from the top.

The gift shop and restaurant were under renovation when I was there. However the cable car ride to the top of the mountain was awesome. This is a must see. The more fit and adventurous traveler can walk or bike up a wide paved path.

Great walk up there. The locals love it too, so you know that there is local flavour! Great coffee and mountain tea.

Very nice view overlooking the entire city. Must visit if you come in Skopje. If you like outdoor activies, you go there by foot just check the weather forecast before.

Nice ride up with the cable car and the views down to the city are great. The cross itself is like a metal monster and surely looks better from a distance, especially at night when it is illuminated.

A taxi to the gondola costs about 200 Dinar, the gondola cost 100 so it is less than E10 for the round trip. The view is as you would expect. I walked back into the centre which took 90 minutes.

We went up by taxi as we didn't know how to get there, up there you have amazing views over Skopje and surrounding area. Really stunning! We went back by bus, which was also a nice experience :)
