The Roman Aqueduct, though most probably not Roman, is believed to be built in the 6th century with the aim to transport fresh water from the foot of Skopska Crna Gora Mountain to Skopje. It was a part of a 10 km water supply system, though the aqueduct is long 386 meters. Over the course of time it has been repaired a number of times, since it was in use until the early 20th century.

It used to be bare and all in rocks, and only in the 1950s it was all afforested and made into a Park Forest that today is most often used for recreation by many people from Skopje.
