Travel Type:

Trip Type:
Sightseeing & culture Sports, adventure or outdoor activities Work / volunteering

Customer Travel Tip: Stay at Shanti Hostel!and sped the day walking around and exploring. Also go hiking at Matka Canyon, maybe go twice!!!! Also, you can hike to the top of the mountain where the cross is and keep going 14 km and you'll arrive at the Canyon. Buses go back to Skopje often from there---start early. If the bus doesn't show up in the evening (mine didn't) a taxi is just $6 or so, and you can split it with other people waiting for the bus. I shared with a Belgian couple. Life is easy in Skopje!

Liked: Small town with friendly people, views of mountains and lots of day trips to be had.

Disliked: I like it for what I wanted---relax, peace, small town.
