About
By this day trip, you will visit two of the most important sites of Northern Macedonia – its Capital Skopje, and one of the breathtaking natural wonders – Matka Canyon. We will dive into the past, while exploring the old part of Skopje with its authentic sites, get to know the modern understanding of the history which the Macedonians have while walking in the new part of the city - rebuilt during the “Skopje 2014” project. In the end, we will take a break from all the history and new facts and rest our minds in the heavenly nature of Matka Canyon.

I highly recommend this trip!!
My boyfriend and I had a free day on our 3-day trip to Sofia because we saw all that we wanted to, so we booked this trip to Skopje to fill this day. And it was THE MOST BEAUTIFUL part of our trip!! The guide picked us in front of the hotel and on our way to Skopje he told us a lot of informations that we didn’t know about Bulgarian and Macedonian history, and our 3,5 hour ride went by really fast!
In Skopje we met our local guide and had a 2 hours city tour, and than we went to Matka Canyon and it was wonderful! The boat ride, the beautiful cave.. The whole day was perfect and was the highlight of our 3-day trip! Thank you to guides Adrian and Mike who made this trip even more memorable!
