This pearl was about 20km from centre of Skopje and the taxi was something like 15€ AT TOPS. Views are breathtaking and the river calls for you to take a swim. Many places to jump if you watch carefully where the locals jump. Water was...More

Finally I managed to see Matka Canyon, even I visited Skopje probably some 30 times. You can come by your own car, however parking places are not so convenient. This I would recommend a public transport (bus 60 from Transport Center in Skopje - you...More
