Matka Transportation: 6 reviews and 3 photos
Lake Matka is about 30 min by car from the center of Skopje.
Bus 60 is going directly to Matka, but is rather unfrequent. Bus tickets are about 50 Denar (less than 1 euro).
A more frequent option is to take bus 2 to Saraj (Capaj in Macedonian) and take a taxi from there for approximately 150 Denar (about 2.5 euro). Bus 2 stops e.g. close to the Bit Bazaar in Skopje.
Of course you can also take a taxi from the center of Skopje, that should be about 400-500 Denar (7 euros).
In my Matka Travelogue I also describe how to get to Matka from the last stop of bus 12 (Ezero Treska), but this includes a hike to the lake.
To go back to Skopje, take bus 60 or a taxi. A few minibuses (vans) go back to Saraj (Caraj) at the end of the day. At the time of writing at 17.20 h and 18.45 h. From Saraj you can take bus 2 back to the center of Skopje.
The link below takes you to the website of the bus company, including timetables.
