St. Pantelejmon

Perched 770 metres high up the 1,066-metre Mount Vodno, immediately to the southwest of Skopje, lies the small settlement of Gorno Nerezi. Reachable by car (a taxi ride costs around 250den each way) or for the more adventurous by scrambling up the mountain track, Gorno Nerezi really is worth the journey, partly for the superb view of the city below but mostly for what lies inside the 12th-century St. Pantelejmon Monastery. Ideal as a mini break away from the capital, the monastery has quite rightly cashed in on its notoriety and features a restaurant and small hotel as well.
