Millennium Cross (Mileniumski Krst)
Standing at the top of Vodno Mountain in Skopje, the Millennium Cross (Mileniumski Krst) is one of the largest crosses in the world. At 216 feet (66 meters) high, the landmark is as tall as a 20-story building and even taller than the Statue of Liberty. The cross serves as a memorial of 2,000 years of Christianity in Macedonia and was built on the highest spot on the mountain known as Krstovar, or 'Place of the Cross.'

Visitors can make the strenuous hike up the mountain or choose to ascend to the top via an elevator located inside the cross for incredible views around Skopje. In 2009, a restaurant and souvenir shop also popped up beside the cross, and two years later, the two-mile (3.5-km) Millennium Cross Ropeway opened with a cable car to bring visitors from Skopje to the base of the cross in under 10 minutes. Keep an eye out for the cross come nightfall when it is lit up and can be seen from miles around.

Practical Info

The Millennium Cross is accessible by bus from Skopje on the Millennium Cross line, which can be taken from the main bus station to Middle Vodno. From there, catch the cable car to the top. Buses leave from Skopje hourly between 8:20 a.m. and 3:20 p.m. Going back, the last bus departs Middle Vodno at 5 p.m. A one-way bus ticket is less than one Euro, although taking a taxi is also an option that should cost less than five Euros one way.
Address: Sredno Vodno, Skopje 1000, Macedonia
