Mount Skopska Crna Gora



Skopje Crna Gora is a mountain reached in about half an hour’s drive from the center of Skopje. With its specific location and geographical exposure, it offers excellent hiking opportunities throughout the year.

In the winter, due to the southern exposure of the most frequently used trails, it provides opportunities for almost summer-like and enjoyable hiking, while in the summer, when higher villages or tourist settlements are used as starting points for hiking tours, the conditions are fresh, especially if the tours start early.

What makes Skopje Crna Gora unique is multifaceted. Mostly because it represents a synchronized combination of hiking adventures, visits to rural places, and as the crowning glory of day hiking trips, visits to one of the many spiritual temples – churches and monasteries on the mountain whose frescoes are a precursor to the Renaissance in art, for which, according to one interpretation, it received its name. But we’ll leave the stories about the origin of the name for you to hear from our guides on the spot.

The views from the highest mountain ridges, despite being “only” 1600 meters high, due to the geographical location of the mountain, give the feeling that you are observing the mountains in Macedonia and neighboring countries from a much higher perspective. An excellent motive for fans of panoramic photography tours.

It’s hard to believe that when someone knows what hiking experience they can have just half an hour’s drive from the city center, they would resist the temptation to enjoy on excellent trails, unforgettable panoramas, and visit spiritual sanctuaries with priceless artistic and historical value.
