This tour is a combination of some of the most famous landmarks around Skopje.

Transfer from the apartment to Mount Vodno for a cable car ride to the top of the mountain for the best view over the capital Skopje and the surrounding mountains. Here we stop for a short break with mountain tea and visit of the Millennium Cros.

We’ll take short picturesque drive to the nearby village Gorno Nerezi to St Panteleimon Monastery – a church built in 12th century, hidden in the high monastery walls. Purched on a plateau on Mt Vodno this monastery gives a magnificent view over the Macedonian Capital. The frescoes in St Panteleimon brought big changes in the development of the Byzantine art and Macedonian in particular and gave basis to suppose that local painters, though reared in the tradition of decorative Byzantine painting, could make brave steps even in the 12th and the 13th centuries towards a new art which was later, in the 14th and the 15th centuries in Italy known as the Renaissance Art.

After that we continue towards Matka, a canyon filled with twenty caves and several abysses, and a place to a wonderful and memorable lake. The specific climate of the area contributed to the life of many endemic plants and animals, and to over 250 different species of butterfly. The Canyon Matka covers an area of around 5.000 ha and is located 15 km southwest of Skopje. By its morphogenetic characteristics, it is a breakthrough gorge. Visit of the church St Andrea and boat ride to visit the cave Vrelo. Located on the right bank of the Treska River, the cave was listed as one of the top 77 natural sites in the world in the New7Wonders of Nature project.
