enter image description here I took this picture in Ohrid, Macedonia, it is the first time I see this kind of spider here.

This spider was 2-3 cm long and was outside in urban building.

I tried to identify it by your photo via Seek app and the result is "cross orbweaver / Araneus diadematus

The result seems true when it's compared to description in this site
