We got on the top by cable car, but you can climb too. The properties on the top are not finished, there is no restaurant, no coffee, only one window with some snacks. There are some benches around so that you can enjoy the beautiful view.

There was a selection of routes to reach the summit. We took the 'red' route also known as the toughest one, but it did allow us to reach the top the quickest. I can see the route being quite treacherous if it'd been rainy, but we went in dry/warm conditions and it took an inexperienced group roughly an hour from... More

You can get to the Millenial Cross in two phases: first by car or by bus you reach a plateau with a park and a restaurant. If you take the bus (they have those lovely doubledeckers in Skopje:), go to the international bus station and find bus nr. 25. There is a bus stop near the memorial house of Mother... More

Millenniun Cross was quite disappointment. When we got on the top by cable car, there was no restaurant, no caffee, only one window with some snacks, and few places with benches. For summer time enough, but not for November. There was enormous coldness (yes, we might not prepare enough), but we expected some warm place with warm drinks or food,... More

The Millennium cross is just amazing, all metal made. The view from the cross is gorgeous on both sides, over the city and the wild! You reach the Millennium cross by walking the forest path at the bottom of the mountain leading to the cable cars directly going to the cross. You can also take the bus if you don't... More

The Millennium Cross is located on Mount Vodno overlooking the city of Skopje in Macedonia. You can get to the Millenium cross by bus, hiking or by car. After the bus stops in a car-park nowhere near the top of Mount Vodno, the fun part of the journey begins. The “Millennium Cross Ropeway” is a cable car that will take... More

Fun ride on the cable car, beautiful views. Nice place for a picnic, it was busy on a Sunday but very peaceful. As to the cross itself - it's huge and it looks better at night from a distance.

If you want to breathe clean air in Skopje, visit the Mountain Vodno. Road to the middle of Vodno is asphalted and good. By car you can go to the middle of the mountain. From there to the top only on foot or by gondola (6-7 minutes to the top). On foot you can go by goat paths or asphalt.... More

Very nice view of Skopje city and the mountains around from the Millenium Cross. Great to visit in good weather as visibility will be super. Ok bar at the top of the hill to refresh oneself. I would recommend this as a must to anyone visiting Skopje.
