Matka is a canyon lake near Skopje, with magnificent surface and underwater caves.

The world famous underwater cave Vrelo is located on the right side of the river Treska. Vrelo cave has many stalactites including a large one in the middle of the cave known as the "Pine Cone" because of its shape. There are two lakes at the end of the cave. Both underwater lakes are extraordinary examples of rare prehistoric cave assets. Though the exact depth of the cave is unknown, some speculate that it could be the deepest underwater cave in the world.  The Italian cave diver Luigi Casati, who is part of an international team of explorers, is attempting to prove that the cave is at least 500 meters (1,650 feet) deep.

The Lake Matka na Vrelo cave tour is tailored to people that like nature and outdoor activities.

    Just got back from our amazing trip to Europe. I was not looking forward to our excursion to Skopje because of the heat and the crowds. I was relieved when we were picked up at our hotel from the and were taken on the most breath taking tour of Matka. Martin our driver took us to places that you would not normally see. I want to Thank City Tours for their quick responses to all my emails. You all made our visit to Skopje and Matka one that we will never forget. Thanks

    I recently vacationed in Skopje with my husband and another couple. We decided to book the Matka Tour. The website provided great information on what to expect and received high reviews from other tourists. The tour exceeded our expectations. Antonio was wonderful! He was very friendly, he showed us both well known and lesser known parts of Matka and its Caves. I would definitely recommend the Matka Tour if you're in Skopje for less than 3-4 days.

    Our guide was magnificent with our family of 8 including a wheelchair. He wheeled my brother in law around everywhere which was something we were not expecting him to do for us (the van he brought was perfect for a rolling chair)! The extra lengths he went to be sure John was able to see everything that the rest of the family saw was amazing! Thank you City Tours!

    We had such a good time on our tour of Matka! With so much to be said, our tour guide shared his knowledge of this amazing place and made it fun for the whole family. City Tours was recommended to us by several friends and we would recommend it to others as well.
