"Millenium Cross" Millenium Cross Tip by stewartbel

Millenium Cross, Skopje: 7 reviews and 14 photos

Millennium Cross is one of the newest symbols of Skopje. It was built in 2002. This Cross was build by Macedonian Orthodox Church in order to celebrate 2000 years of Christianity in the World and on Macedonian soil. It was constructed and placed on the highest point on Vodno mountain, a place that for centuries was known as place where Cross exists. Most of the time during Ottoman`s rule in Macedonia (14-20 century) there was a small cross on this place, so Turkish and local Macedonians called it "Krstovar" (place where there is a cross).
