    Lovely views
    You can see it from downtown, but also take a cable car to get there. From the centre, a cab would cost you around 400 denar, to the start of the cable car, which is 200 denar. Lovely views from above.

    Lovely view from the mountain
    Visited on a Sunday via the free number 25 bus from Skopje. The drive up the mountain was enjoyable with windy road. As a solo traveller I ended up joining a group of other solo travellers to get the cable car to the top. It had some odd hours as we had to wait half an hour for it to reopen in the afternoon. At the base of the cross there is a nice view of the surroundings. There was a small shop for drinks/ice creams.

    The most special thing in Macedonia
    I don't know about anyone else but this cross is very special. When it is lighted at nights it brings a sense of peace and calmness to the city of Skopje. It is truly a great idea whoever came up with it. From a distance when approaching the city this lighted cross seems to welcome you or the light just guides you home. It warms my heart every time I see it whether in a video or reminiscing about my time there. It is located on top of Mount Vodna. It is worth taking a a cable car ride up to see it close up .it is one big metal structure.

    NICE TO SEE BUT NOTHING SPECTACULAR
    The cross can be seen at the top of Mount Vodno and is accessed by cable car or by hiking. I hiked the Sonje pass from Sonje village which took 45 minutes. It's a giant cross made with metal mesh design and looks around 50 feet tall. It makes for some good photos but in my opinion it's nothing spectacular. However all the views will hide your possible disappointment with the cross itself

    A Great Sidetrip
    We didn't know the cross existed upon arrival, but we quickly learned from the internet that there is a cable car that takes one to the top of the mountain. It's a great ride! And inexpensive! One takes city bus no. 25 from the central bus station (next to the central train station) to a point part-way up the mountain where the cable car starts.

    Fantastic Views
    We came to see this as part of a group tour. We got the cable car up to the top and were simply astonished by the views! What a mountainous region we were in. Great view of the city of Skopje itself too. The cross is pretty cool to admire, one of the tallest in the world!

    Beautiful views
    Great view of the city and surrounding mountains. The cable car ride was nice and had great views. You must try the frozen coffee at the juice bar. It is awesome! The one huge drawback is that there are no restrooms on top of the mountain. Please prepare your bladder accordingly. There are portable toilets down in the parking area.

    Amazing Views of Skopje 🇲🇰
    We went there by Taxi coz we were in a hurry. If you are not, take bus number 25, it will take you there. We then took the cable car up. Beautiful views of Skopje. We enjoyed just being there. There are two restaurants. However, you can take your own food and Picknick on the grass or in the huts. It's a must go!!!!! Wonderful ❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Good views
    To get there by bus go the local bus station, next to the international one, both under the motorway and get tickets from the grey booth. Only 160 return, my 13 year old was free. Takes 40 minutes. The cable car only runs for 30 minutes then stops for 30. Good view. Avoid rip off taxi drivers.

25a is the free bus up to the base of cable car. 100 den (£1) return trip per adult. Views were breathtaking on the cable car. At the top what a mess. Yes views are beautiful but these are detracted from but the immense grot. A good tidy up is desperately needed.
Cable car down was again lovely, but bus trip back to Skopje was hideous. Too many people pushing and shoving so the bus was totally overloaded and left us uneasy but we couldn’t get off even if we tried! Wait by the end of the car park for a taxi is my advice! Don’t get off the cable car either!!

This is the first and last thing we saw while in Skopje. From our approach on the plane, till taking off on the way out, it lights up the sky. It can also be seen from pretty much anywhere in the city, and adds to a really charming city.

Great views. Caught a cab from the center for $311mkd. Was dropped off at the cable cars. $100mkd for round trip to the top. Very cool 360 views. Not much up top. A few places to grab a beer or soda. Disappointed to see so many street dogs😢. Wish I brought some food. Really sad to see them rummage thru garbage for food. I decided to walk back down to the city. There is a clearly marked foot path. A bit challenging at times (it is steep in some places) but worth the adventure. Took me about an hour. I’m 64 year old female.. felt very safe and enjoyed the solitude.

The Millennium Cross is one of Skopje's expressions and dedication to their Christian heritage. Its size and scale are impressive. Its located outside of the city center, but in a small suburb area that is very residential and nice.
Its a nice attraction to visit while in Skopje and connects you to the Macedonian people through their culture and heritage.
