The triumphal arch has two large statues on the sides and has an appealing appearance. The surrounding area is still being constructed. It looks a bit boxed in, but if it wasn't a "hangout" for taxis; I know it would be appealing when the current neighborhood has been finished. Weddings are held on the upper level.

Its obvious when you see the monument that the first thing that comes to mind is the Arc the Triomphe in Paris. This is a nice attempt to duplicate it, but its lacking creativity. Nothing really to it, its pretty, but doesn't belong there in my opinion.

Very good view of the city and an understanding of the history. Great views from the Millenium Cross. The guides are very capable and they give a facinating insight of the city's history, culture and interesting people.

Of the recent lot of "improvements" for Skopje, this is one of the worst, for three reasons: 1) it is a weird place for it. Because the road to the east of it bends around it, it doesn't feel as though it serves as a gate to the central square area, and it is overshadowed by surrounding buildings (including a nearby shopping mall) such that it doesn't have a monumental quality. 2) Aesthetically it isn't all that good. The white color is odd, it feels a bit squat or inharmoniously proportioned, and of course, it's brand new (but as other reviewers have noted) not necessarily of the highest quality construction. 3) What's the point? What connection does this have with Macedonian history? Why appropriate this symbol? It doesn't make you a Paris, a Rome, or even a Thessaloniki (see the Arch of Galerius there). It is a symbolic form that has no meaning and isn't as good as a thoughtful modern, chosen through a non-corrupt open competition of international architects, would have been for the aesthetics and reputation of Skopje.

At the vieving platform there is nothing to see, really. The surrounding buildings block the view... At the roof some tiles were already collapsing...

Extremmely bad copy of Arch of Galerius in Thessaloniki..Stealing Greek monuments was not enough, lets steal some Roman too. The only reason of building it, that I can find, was to have more reasons for stealing part of the state money too..GET SERIOUS..

Knowing that the country has a desperate need for infrastructure this seems a poor way to spend its money like this. That "Arc de Triomphe" is part of the project Skopje 2014 that wasted millions on statues and fake history stuff instead of creating something really useful.

We really enjoyed this full-day tour through Skopje. The tour is split into two parts: In the morning is the walking tour through the city itself where we learned also a lot about the historical background not only of the landmarks and attractoins, but also the country/city itself. Our tour guide was very friendly and helpful. The walking tour ends at Fortress Kale (very close to the Old Bazaar) where we had 60-90 minutes time for lunch and seeing more of the bazaar. Afterwards the second part continues from there by car to several other locations and finally goes to the the Matka Canyon. There we had 1 hour of free time to either do the long boat tour with a visit to the cave (approx. 60 min), or the shorter tour without cave (approx 40 min), or just spend some time in the restaurant. We did the long boat tour with the cave and can definitely recommend it.
The first part is definitely more interactive, as there is not much to show or talk about during the car ride though the forest and villages. Nonetheless our drive was happy to answer any questions we had.
