Only 15km away from Skopje, Canyon Matka is a must for every adventurer. The Canyon itself offers many outdoor activities like kayaking, hiking along the gorge walls or even exploring some nearby medieval churches. It is a home of many explored and unexplored caves, of which the most popular and the only one open to the public is the Vrelo Cave. The Cave was listed as one of the top 77 natural sites in the world in the New7Wonders of Nature project, and according to the speleologists’ assessments, the depth of its underwater portion is 330m, which can easily make it the deepest underwater cave in the world. However according to the last diving expedition, the total penetration so far has been around 280 meters. The underwater part of the cave can be visited only and exclusively with local underwater speleology clubs.
