“A Nice Ride and a Nice View”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

When it comes to the excursion to the Millennium Cross, half of the fun is the panoramic view of Skopje laying in the valley bellow and surrounding mountains you can enjoy on a clear, sunny day and the other half is the ride in the new cable car (operating for 30 minutes, then resting for the next 30 minutes - closed on Mondays).

Once you reach the parking lot half way up Vodno mountain (by your own car - there is a large parking lot there, or by hourly bus marked KPCT = Cross in Macedonian), you can also climb all the way to the cross on foot (it's a very steep climb that will last between one and two hours - bring enough water with you). I've also heard the road to the top is opened to private cars on weekdays, but I can't confirm, so check it for yourself. Anyhow, it's a good idea to avoid a weekend visit in order to avoid the crowds.

It's said that inside the Cross there's a lift that'll bring you to the top - it wasn't functioning when we visited. At the base of the Cross, there are two stands selling a limited choice of drinks and snacks.

Bear in mind it can be windy and chilly even in mid-summer, so bring a jacket with you.

“The best panorama in town. Must see”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

You cannot say you have visited Skopje if you have not been here. It is one of the best places to visit in the city. Wonderful view.

“Excellent view to the city”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

From the main street (close to Macedonia street) you can take a bus (Panorama) to Vodno within 15 minutes and than it´s the recommendable to take the elevator. Don´t get nervous the buses ride very unregular and it can be that you wait more than 40 minutes. Taxi should not cost more than 500
