The Millennial Cross
18 Sept, 2013 | From Goran Andonov of Macedonia
The Millennium Cross (Mileniuski krst) is a 66 metre-high cross situated on the top of the Vodno Mountain in Skopje, Republic of Macedonia. It was constructed to serve as a memorial of 2,000 years of Christianity in Macedonia and the world.
The cross was built on the highest point of the Vodno mountain on a place known since the time of the Ottoman Empire as "Krstovar", meaning "Place of the cross", as there was a smaller cross situated there.
Goran shared that this is a pride of Macedonia, and is regarded as the world's tallest cross.
