1st highlight: Prilep
In the morning we leave the wine region and drive to Prilep, to the tobacco fields. The town, adorned with medieval walls and towers, was shaped by the Serbian King Marko. From here we hike to the remote Treskavec monastery from the 13th century, which is hidden between the rocks of the "Golden Mountain". Built on a vertical granite rock and more than 1,400 m above sea level, the monastery offers wide views of the Pelagonija plain and the Baba, Babuna and Kajmakcalan mountains. We meet Father Kalist here and hear the story of the great Byzantine heritage hidden in the Treskavec frescoes.
2nd highlight: Bitola and dinner in the restaurant
In the afternoon we drive to Bitola, the former city of consulates and embassies. Even today it is one of the most beautiful cities in North Macedonia. We visit the evening promenade and eat in a traditional Macedonian restaurant.
Overnight in Bitola
