Morning departure to the outskirts of Skopje (ca 30min transfer), where we’ll visit the spectacular Matka Canyon. There are some beautiful and important cultural landmarks in the canyon, including the 14th century monastery of St. Andreja and the female monastery of St. Bogorodica (also founded in the XIV cent., and still an active sisterhood thrives there). We’ll take a short boat journey in the canyon to the Vrelo cave, which sits above the Vrelo underwater cave, which is currently the deepest in Europe, with measured depth at 191m.
If guests wish so, after the boat trip we can have short coffee break before we continue our trip to Skopje.
