Millennium Cross hike and Mount Vodno’s vista

On our second afternoon in Skopje, we stopped for lunch in the Old Bazaar, joined by Simon, one of the Germans we met during the free Skopje walking tour.

The start of our Skopje North Macedonia travel adventure

It took us some time to leave the Rila Monastery and start out with Skopje North Macedonia travel adventures. Like on our arrival in the Rila National Park, there were works to expand the road, so we had to wait a lot for the machines to get out of the way or to move the recently cut trees out of the road.
